EPI Blog: The value of the federal minimum wage hasn’t been this low since 1956.

Juanita Jean’s: All’s well that’s Swalwell.

Hackwhackers: The Secret Service, marriage equality, Russia, the Anti-Christ and the rest of the day in tweets.

Lawyers, Guns & Money: One hundred and sixty-eight years after it became “Bleeding Kansas,” the Sunflower State is a battleground for freedom again.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"As I lay so sick on my bed, from Christmas till March, I was always praying for poor ole master. 'Pears like I didn't do nothing but pray for ole master. 'Oh, Lord, convert ole master;' 'Oh, dear Lord, change dat man's heart, and make him a Christian.'" (Harriet Tubman)
