In brief: As promised, the diviner of courts and all that intersects with them, Jessica Mason Pieklo is back on to explain the ultimate question: WHAT NOW? When we look at the courts and know it’s bad, but don’t quite know what “bad” means in the lives of real people, we’re asking WHAT NOW? Jess and I meander our way from Kavanaugh (CN: !no! graphic/sexual assault discussions) to Kentucky to kids being torn from their parents’ arms in an incredibly important discussion about how to start laying the groundwork for our grandkids and their grandkids who will have to undo whatever’s coming.
I promise we both laugh — some dark and sinister, some genuine — and cathartically moan under this dark cloud. Jess, ever the strategist, has some bright spots and calls to action!
