Katie Halper, writing for Salon.com, has taken a look at Florida’s “stand your ground” law and come to the conclusion that in practice the measure treats black and white shooters very differently.

Albert Kleine is a senior economics researcher for Media Matters who says Republicans have been laying the groundwork for a long time to get rid of food stamps.

Julian Zelizer is a professor of history and public affairs at Princeton University.
