This one hurts

but I have to agree with Atrios.

I grew up in Louisiana, and even though I wasn't born there, consider myself more native to Louisiana than Texas. I can't say that the abortion ban surprises me very much, but it does disappoint, if only because there are more important things to be worried about (like hurricane season preparations, perhaps?). But much as I love it, I will now try to convince my daughter to exclude Louisiana schools from her college search, and whatever tiny thoughts I had of eventually moving back one day will be put aside until that law is repealed.
