Hello, everyone. It's good to be back. I hope you're all having a nice summer with crazy storms and super-hot temperatures that have nothing at all to do with anthropogenic climate change. Nothing. At. All. And so, without any further ado:

Free the Royal Baby! Abolish the monarchy! (And I say that as a Canadian-British dual citizen who loathes that silly family and that wretched institution.)

Prairie Weather: America extends its generosity to the world, expanding the use of drones.

Perrspectives: If you don't understand how Obama is a racist, don't worry, it's a conservative thing.

Human Voices: There's been way too much partisan monkey business in response to the Zimmerman verdict.

Meanwhile, the crazy continues: Pete "hooray for IRA terrorism" King eyeing the White House? Ray "stop 'n' frisk minorities" Kelly angling to head up the DHS? What the hell's going on?

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (Twitter: @mjwstickings). I'll be here all week.
