Happy Birthday to Morena Baccarin, 34.
And a bit of good stuff:
1. Youth vote update: a column by Timothy Male of the Tacoma Park (MD) City Council and Rob Richie of FairVote on the 16 year old voting minimum. Via Hasen.
2. John Sides on Ted Cruz (rebutting in part my Salon column from the weekend). But see also the comment by Dave Hopkins (and for that matter see also the comment from Andrew Gelman). I may have more to say about it later; not sure right now.
3. An interview with David Mayhew.
4. And Ann Friedman on friendship. Well, friendship among women, but it works more generally, too, in my view.
