These days, though, he’s as snug as a hobbit in his hole in his native country after returning to record his latest album, and he doesn’t plan on changing his home base soon. “I’m back,” Plant said in a recent phone interview from his home along the Welsh border. “My dog is curled up in the sunlight here in the late afternoon and it’s a beautiful day.

Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Orrin Hatch and others have taken to the Senate floor to lie about the Democracy for All amendment, saying it would lead to book banning and prevent voter registration drives. Tea party Sen. Mike Lee of Utah even said that the amendment sponsors want to silence voices like Thomas Paine and Martin Luther King! These are the lengths they’ll go to in telling stories.

She’s helping the situation, though, by creating her own heroes — like Maisie Danger Brown, the super-powered science whiz of her novel, “Dangerous,” which came out earlier this year.
