Nice tribute to Mike Flynn over at Reason: Mike Flynn, Editor at Breitbart News and Former Reason Foundation Director of Government Affairs, Dead at 48. If you'd like to help Mike's kids, there's a GoFundMe effort here. [Y-not]
The sun goes blank again during the weakest solar cycle in more than a century. Rascally climate change deniers to blame? [Mis. Hum.]
Brexit opinion poll reveals majority DON'T want second referendum despite more than 2 million signing petition "The economy (67%) was cited as the most important for Remain voters. By contrast, the ability of Britain to make its own laws is cited by Leave voters as the most important issue when deciding which way to vote (53%), ahead of immigration (34%)." [Y-not]
Omar Mateen's mother-in-law proclaimed support for Hamas leader. Some actual investigative reporting on the shooter's family by the Palm Beach Post. [Y-not]
Was disabling Hillary's email server security a big deal?
"You're putting not just the Clinton server at risk but the entire Department of State emails at risk"
Bob Gourley, former chief technology officer - Defense Intelligence Agency.

Cruz: Obama Proposal Puts Internet Freedom in Hands of Russia, China "Cruz has added an amendment to the Senate's Highway Bill that would require an up-or-down vote on the administration's plan to give ICANN control over names and numbers." [Y-not]
Fiorina campaigns for Paul in Senate race "Fiorina amplified Paul's brand of liberty politics by telling the crowd that 'power concentrated is power abused, always.' She used the vote by Great Britain to leave the European Union as an example." [Y-not]
Brexit and the End of International Progressive Inevitability "Is it any wonder that citizens of one of the greatest and strongest nations in human history would recoil from an international order that was proving mainly that it could enrich an elite without seeming to lift a finger to preserve the nationís core values and traditions -- the very things that had made it great and strong?" [Y-not]
ICYMI: Walker's Labor Reforms Were a Success "While it was clear to all that Walkerís 2011 cutbacks would save Wisconsin a large amount of money (the MacIver institute has estimated $5.24 billion over five years), critics of Act 10 were adamant that the bill would adversely affect the labor market for teachers. WILLís study shows that these claims were wrong." [Y-not]
RNC Rules Committee stocked with stalwarts. "The rules put in place in 2012 will govern the convention until the convention floor passes a new set. The Rules Committee will finalize a draft, which will require a 57-delegate majority to advance to the floor. That set of rules will need a majority of delegates on the floor to go into effect. If one-quarter of the delegates sign on to an alternate set of rules, that can go to the floor as a minority report from the committee." [Y-not]

NJ senate passes $15/HR minimum wage. Previously in May it had passed the assembly. It's off to Chris Christie's desk. Look for a veto. [Mis. Hum.]
FORE!!!! Trump visits his new golf course in Scotland. [Mis. Hum.]
In a new study that surprised nobody with an ounce of common sense, researchers found that Bullying teaches kids valuable life lessons about standing up for themselves and handling power imbalances. Imagine that. How long until they waste a million dollars studying "walk it off" and "rub some dirt on it"? [Weirddave]
Glenn Reynolds: Things don't have to be rotten. "New York got better because its citizens got tired of its problems and wanted a change. They were willing to support people who might make that change happen. If America's citizens feel the same way, there's plenty of room for improvement. Let's hope we see it." [Y-not]
Dow closes down 600 after Brexit surprise; financials post worst day since 2011 "With Friday's drop, both the Dow and S&P erased their gains for the year so far. The Nasdaq composite was nearly 6 percent lower year-to-date." [Y-not]
