Mississippi voters can decide ‘personhood’ of the unborn
(CNN) — Voters in Mississippi will be given a chance to decide whether life begins at conception, a controversial abortion-related ballot initiative that the state’s highest court has refused to block.
The Mississippi Supreme Court late Thursday allowed Measure 26, also known as the Personhood Amendment, to appear on the state ballot November 8. The decision was a rejection of a lawsuit filed by the ACLU and abortion-rights groups.
The 7-2 ruling said those groups had not met the legal burden required to restrict the right of citizens to amend the state constitution.

Washington state’s glumness index dives off the charts
WASHINGTONIANS are smart enough to know instinctively — without a poll — that expectations about the future are down in the dumps. Way, way down.
Pollster Stuart Elway put an exclamation point on what many people feel. His latest poll asks voters if they expect things to get better during the next year for the country, the state, community and their own households.
The optimism — or, in this case, pessimism — index plunged below zero, the lowest since he began polling in 1991. (Yes, even lower than the depths of the Great Recession in 2008 and 2009.)
Statewide, voters have what you might call recession fatigue. They expected things to be better by now, but that’s not really happening. We all know about recessions. They come, they go. They are not supposed to last this long. Full story here
