From Harper’s Weekly Review:
Ohio voters legalized marijuana and established a right to abortion. An exonerated member of the Central Park Five won a city council seat in New York, and the mother of a Uvalde school shooting victim lost a mayoral race in Texas. A rural Michigan town ousted its entire government over its decision to approve construction of an electric battery plant owned by a company headquartered in China. Election officials in five states received letters laced with unknown powders, and a Pennsylvanian who left his wallet at a polling place returned with seven guns.
That last item deserves some attention since, at a first glance, it makes little sense. Also at a second glance. And at a third serious study.
