SocraticGadfly offers up a trio of national and international presidential-related items. He starts with Ralph Nader jumping into the lesser evilism tank, goes to an overview of Trump suing Steele (in Great Britain), and finishes with RFK Jr. planning an independent run. (And, more is coming later this week and the start of next week!)

Off the Kuff writes about the go ahead for the whistleblower lawsuit against Ken Paxton to proceed from the Supreme Court.

Another protest at the former Oñate statue site in Española, another shooting. (And, another note for #BlueAnon that people of any race or ethnicity can break for Trump.)

CultureMap showcases the latest Astrodome redevelopment plan. 

The Texas Living Waters Project looks at the effect of this year's drought on our water systems.
