Alright, that's it for me this week. See you all again later in the summer. In the meantime:
Go Iceland! (But really, go Germany!)
And good luck, Cleveland. Good f***ing luck. (For what it's worth, I think Trump will tap Mike Pence has his running mate. I also think Hillary will pick Deval Patrick.)
And to all of my American friends and family, and to all of you Americans, have a happy and safe Fourth of July tomorrow. Think about what that was about, what it really meant, and don't let Trump and the Republicans co-opt the Founding and destroy its promise. They are not the heirs to it, only its obscene ideological perversion.
Mad Mike's America: Trump, the candidate of superlatives.
Lawyers, Guns & Money: Brexit, the continuing negative fallout.
Alicublog: Sexual revolution, a big deal on the right.
Can It Happen Here?: Voting rights, still a reality in America.
Farewell, Elie Wiesel, a conscience for all humanity.
