Happy Birthday to Catherine Mary Stewart, 54.
And here's some good stuff:
1. The number one justified conservative complaint about the press: how "conservative" and "right-wing" are used interchangably for both folks like Ronald Reagan and Mitt Romney, on the one hand, and Hitler, on the other. During the tail end of the Soviet Union, the faction which wanted to keep communism as it was regularly was referred to as, yes, conservative. Philip Klein was annoyed by it on Friday.
2. Emily Bazelon on Miranda.
3. Good journalism: excellent look at House and Senate recruiting, from Shane Goldmacher.
4. If you want to know why gun measures keep losing despite polling that shows their popularity, you definitely want to read David Karol.
5. And I was hoping to get to this on Friday, but I'll just link instead: Travis Waldron is correct about baseball salaries. The proper liberal response to the rise in baseball salaries after 1975 should be, it seems to me, that business can thrive when the workers thrive (while the proper conservative response should be: hey, markets are really powerful and in many circumstances do an excellent job).
