Happy Throwback Thursday! After I wrote "I'm almost done with this series. Next week I plan on looking at the top posts on social media followed by a combination of the back catalog and holidays" at the end of Watch reports on the 2019 March for Science from Green Bay and Sacramento, an update to the March for Science for the eighth year of Crazy Eddie's Motie News, I found out that I had skipped a top 40 entry, Michigan Supreme Court allows anti-gerrymandering proposal to remain on ballot. Oops.* I'll have to delay those last two entries until tomorrow and next Thursday, respectively, while I give Voters Not Politicians their turn in the spotlight.

Both director Barak Goodman and star Katie Fahey promoted the film in The Fight Against Partisan Gerrymandering | All In | MSNBC with Ali Velshi guest-hosting.

Directors Barak Goodman and Chris Durrance join "Red and Blue" to discuss their documentary, premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival this month.At this point, I would normally embed the trailer, but it's a private link on Vimeo so I can't. Axios managed the trick, so my readers can watch it there. In the meantime, here's to hoping it earns a nomination for Best Political Documentary at the Critics' Choice Documentary Awards this fall.
