Happy Birthday to Peter Bogdanovich, 73. I just saw Last Picture Show again last week; it's just astonishingly good, isn't it? And I do love Paper Moon. That's not bad.
On to the good stuff:
1. Kevin Drum keeps us up to date on the state of climate denialism.
2. Sarah Kliff on that Federal District judge who isn't sure whether mandating that employers who provide health insurance include contraceptive coverage is kosher or not. Two things: that's a Carter appointee, senior status since 1988. And second: merits aside, gotta love any case called Hercules v. Sebelius.
3. And don't cry for Brad DeLong, Noah Smith. Or something like that. At any rate, Zachary's makes a really good pie, and I miss it a lot, although I actually preferred Rustica -- is it still in business?
