Happy Birthday to George Takei, 75.
Quickly, to the good stuff:
1. As usual, it doesn't get any better than Ta-Nehisi Coates, this time on complaints about "Girls."
2. Scott Lemieux on ACA second-guessing.
3. Harry Enton on silly "rules" that were made to be broken.
4. And were DC Circuit Court Judge Janice Rogers Brown's recent "open-mic libertarian musings" a job application, as Dahlia Lithwick sees it? Good article, but there's another interpretation. She's about to turn 63, older than Roberts and Alito...she may be realizing that she's well past the age window that recent appointments to the Supremes have fit, and so it might as well be bombs away now.
