April 3, 2021 (San Diego) ECM staff writer and photographer, Rebecca Jefferis Williamson, submitted this picture of a baseball game ---San Diego style - at the beach. The San Diego Padres' Petco Park includes a fan section that has beach chairs and sand. Pictured are three fans enjoying the second game of the season.  Fans were seated in "pods" or groupings of family and friends due to the pandemic. Social distancing between the pods was enforced. 

The Padres won their second game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

So you support voter suppression?

The Georgia law is the most repressive anywhere - it even makes it illegal to bring water to people standing in long lines.  It introduces unreasonable barriers to voters to access or turn in absentee ballots, limits voting hours (making it hard for working people to vote), and  shifts control of state elections to the legislature instead of the secretary of state, giving partisan legislators more control over county election officials. Nobody should support such laws; this is part of Georgia's long history of trying to suppress minority votes.
