Happy Birthday to Madison Bumgarner, 24.
Want some good stuff?
1. More on the Iraq War, from Erik Voeten. My position, again: the instability and costs of the status quo were real...but good presidenting would have revealed that the costs, including downside risks, of invasion and occupation were far, far, higher.
2. Good crankiness about the current scandals (and stupid things being said about them) from Irin Carmon.
3. And speaking of cranky: Greg opens up on lazy punditry.
