Happy Birthday to Michelle Phillips, 69. Going with the imdb link instead of allmusic; I do like the Mamas and the Papas, but I like her Star Trek episode more.
And on to the good stuff:
1. David Frum's blog will be missed as he takes the summer off, or more. His sign-off, an honest report on the state of conservative reformers, is excellent.
2. Jared Bernstein is keeping up the sequestration watch.
3. Jonathan Cohn gets upset with conservatives. With one conservative. It's about ACA, natch.
4. Brendan Nyhan on scandalmania and Obama's approval ratings.
5. The death of the "gay recruiting myth," from E.J. Graff.
6. And Peter Gammons on tired baseball.
