A New Milestone in the Two-Nationing of America

From a Michael Schaffer Capital City column on politico.com headlined “A New Milestone in the Sundering of America”:

I was talking to an old classmate and fellow resident of a blue-state metropolitan neighborhood, and the talk turned to kids and colleges. “Would you send your kid to Emory?” my friend asked. But he wasn’t talking about education; he was talking about national politics. Texas had just passed a restrictive abortion law. Other states looked likely to follow, following a familiar map dividing one America from another. And chances were that the Supreme Court would OK them.
