Hey everyone! We’ve got some great new stuff for you this week, including pieces on bipartisan colorblindess and a proposal to credentialize panhandlers. And be sure to wish Lisa Wade and everyone over at Sociological Images a happy 10th anniversary. They helped pave the way for TSP and many others, so let’s all show them some love!
