Amicus: Where We Draw the Line  

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in McCrory v. Harris and Bethune-Hill v. Virginia Board of Elections, two challenges to Republican gerrymandering efforts that resulted in the creation of majority-minority voting districts. At issue is whether lawmakers in Virginia and North Carolina were motivated primarily by racial considerations or only secondarily so. Marc Elias, the lawyer who represented the challengers in both cases, joins us to explain why the distinction is so critical.

We also consider the revolt that’s underway in the Electoral College. A small group of electors calling themselves the Hamilton Electors are seeking to be unbound from state requirements that they vote as their state voted. Legal scholar Carolyn Shapiro explains why she believes the Hamilton Electors should be taken seriously.

radioTexte / Astrid Lindgren: Liebe, süße Louise (1/2) - 06.12.2016  

Astrid Lindgren stand 1953 am Beginn einer beispiellosen Weltkarriere. Bei einem Berlin-Besuch lernte sie die Deutsche Louise Hartung kennen und es entwickelte sich eine ganz besondere Brieffreundschaft, die elf Jahre andauerte. Elf Jahre lang schrieben sich die schwedische Schriftstellerin Astrid Lindgren und die deutsche Sängerin und Frauenrechtlerin Louise Hartung fast 600 Briefe über ihren Alltag, ihr Arbeitsleben, ihre Träume, die Kunst der Freundschaft und der Liebe. Louise Hartung stammte aus Münster, lebte bereits seit den zwanziger Jahren in Berlin, wo sie sich 1953 kennen lernten. Louise Hartung war mit Kurt Weill und Lotte Lenya, Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall und Paul Klee befreundet. Im Ostsektor der zerbombten Stadt hatte sie als Sängerin Konzerte gegeben, an der Uraufführung der Dreigroschenoper von Bert Brecht mitgewirkt, Schallplatten aufgenommen. Später war sie hauptamtliche Mitarbeiterin des Berliner Hauptjugendamtes, das die Erfinderin der rebellischen Pippi zu einer Lesung eingeladen hatte. Die Schauspielerinnen Eva Mattes und Oda Thormeyer lesen aus dem vor kurzem erschienenen Band „Ich habe auch gelebt!“ ausgewählte Briefe der langjährigen Freundinnen.
