Happy Birthday to Amanda Bearse, 55.
And with that, I'm off on a long vacation weekend. Off to Vegas with my dad. I should get the normal weekend posts up at some point, I'll have a Salon column as usual, and it's possible I'll wind up doing another item at some point, but today and Monday should be fairly quiet around here.
Some good stuff heading into the weekend:
1. Garance Franke-Ruta on living the life...aw, I don't know how to pitch it.
2. This is fun: how old were they on July 4, 1776? Todd Andrlik has the answer.
3. And more fun: scouting reports on...presidents! From David Temple.
