Morning Coffee Reading for June 29, 2011

Here's your morning coffee reading for today:
  • The fight over redistricting in Florida is starting to heat up. Conservative think-tank James Madison Institute has published a must-read article on the status of the redistricting process and the hypocrisy from those on the Left:
