And Don’t Forget

In the wake of the Dobbs decision being used as an opportunity for five justices with a predetermined agenda to overturn Roe it is easy to lose sight of the two January 6th Committee hearings of last week. In fact, I had a though about the timing of the release of the decision among a few others.
