Happy Birthday to Bradley Whitford, 54. Wesleyan Class of '81.
Can't forget the good stuff:
1. Nolan McCarty, Keith T. Poole and Howard Rosenthal on gerrymandering.
2. Andrew Rudalevige on beating the debt limit.
3. The latest on teaching creation myths, from Sarah Posner.
4. Greg Koger on the conservative record on deficits. But tell us something we don't know (which I mean literally: I'd be very interested in seeing this evidence for the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s).
5. And Zach Beauchamp on race, Republicans, and shutdown.
