My favorite Excess of Democracy posts from 2015

What I enjoy writing here at Excess of Democracy does not always correlate with what others enjoy reading. I'll soon post my year-end report with the most popular posts, but I thought I'd offer a few of my favorite posts from Excess of Democracy in 2015. (For my academic work, my SSRN page is a good place to start. Any my favorite content published elsewhere--a Wall Street Journal opinion piece on the equal time doctrine, and a piece at the Online Library of Law and Liberty about Evenwel v. Abbott--are also not listed below.)
