    With so many trials involving the former president it is difficult to keep information straight.  Just Security, an online forum for the rigorous analysis of security, democracy, foreign policy, and rights has developed a one-stop clearinghouse where we can “find links to relevant court proceedings, key statutes, government documents, and defense documents – as well as Just Security resources and analysis, media and other guides.”  Let’s check it out and refer to it when needed.


    This could be a big election for ranked-choice voting in Michigan, with East Lansing, Kalamazoo and Royal Oak all considering proposals to approve its use. While there would need to be a change in state law to allow them to put this reform to work, this would be a major step towards crucial democratic reforms. Rank MI Vote will be holding an online campaign briefing today, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12 AT 8PM to discuss their plan for victory and how we can help. We can sign up for this event here, or donate to the cause here.


Some links in these entries in yesterday’s List were not helpful. Here are the corrected entries. Thanks to our readers for keeping us honest!

  • COMMENT ON INSURANCE FOR OVER-THE-COUNTER PREVENTIONSubmitted by a Rogan’s List reader: The Biden Administration wants our input on how to ensure equitable access to over-the-counter (OTC) preventive services, including the newly approved OTC birth control pill. Thanks to Obamacare, many preventive services are covered by insurance. That doesn’t yet apply to services we can get OTC without a prescription including contraception, treatments to quit tobacco, and breastfeeding supplies. We can submit comments on requiring insurers to cover OTC preventive services by following the instructions here by 5 pm Eastern, December 4, 2023. Let’s provide evidence or personal experiences about how insurance affects access to products, how to effectively make insurance-covered OTC services available at retailers, or the impact on health equity and economics.
  • HEATHER COX RICHARDSON’S NEW BOOK TOURRogan’s List has long recommended its readers follow and read Heather Cox Richardson’s Substack, Letters from an American, “a newsletter about the history behind today’s politics”, and follow her Facebook page where she does a weekly live session on the intersection of history and current politics, called Politics Chat (archived in YouTube).  Richardson’s new book, Democracy Awakening, published last week, is on the New York Times Best Seller List.  She is currently on a book tour across the country and tickets are selling out quickly. If we are not able to secure tickets to see Richardson, we can watch her conversation with Meghna Chakrabarti of WBUR here  and her conversation with Rebecca Solnit  here
