Mark Levin's Huge Endorsement of Mike Flynn for #IL18
At the 93 minute mark, about... Levin mistakenly says Illinois 8, but it's the 18th. Vote, volunteer, and support!
Should There Be Different Degrees of Rape, or Sexual Assault, According to Intent?
I've argued before there should be a difference between knowing rape and what might be called "criminally negligent sexual assault" (where one is so negligent in making sure the other party has consented that we could say it is a crime of some kind... similar to criminally negligent homicide, in theory)
Study: Listening to Heavy Metal Might Make Dark-Mooded People Feel Better
Um... I think that's the whole point of it, no?

Through the looking glass. National Park Service removes Confederate flag from its bookstores and gift shops....at Gettysburg. [Weirddave]
Jawa Report: Islamic Terrorist Attacks Air Products Plant in St.-Quentin-Fallavier France Beheading One Worker. "Air Products was picked specifically because it is an American company. The murdered employee's head was posted on the gate of the plant." [Y-not]
CNN: Hundreds injured in explosion at Taiwan water park. Sounds like a big accident, not terrorism, based on this: the fiery explosion occurred during a "Color Play Asia" party put on by a separate marking company that leased out space at the park. [Y-not]

AP: Deformed mutt is crowned World's Ugliest Dog
Good boy! Via Drudge. [rdbrewer]

Conor Friedersdorf: 'It's Time for Good Cops to Do Something About Bad Cops'
"Law-and-order conservatives are happy to acknowledge Baltimore’s criminals but ignore the part of local police culture that is thuggish, brutal and lawless because it is incompatible with how they want people to think of authority." [rdbrewer]


Sharks strike back with "People Week"
Ilya Shapiro, Time: Justice John Roberts’s Obamacare Decision Is an Orwellian Mess
"Roberts combined two unholy strains of judicial agency: liberal activism and conservative pacifism." [rdbrewer]
Aurelius Pundit, The Social Memo: Univ. of WI Releases List of Microaggressions; Saying 'Everyone can Succeed' Now Racist
"The title of the document is 'Examples of Racial Microaggressions' and outlines types of 'racist microaggressions,' examples of them, and what they are 'actually' saying." Yes, microaggressions: because when you're free of racist aggression, something must be manufactured in order to keep calling you a racist, since accusations of racism are a source of power. Conveniently, it's something you don't even know about: unconscious microagressions, you racist. [rdbrewer]
Mike Flynn Plays the Adorable Cat Video Card
Oh yeah -- he goes there. But if you've had your fill of fat-cat crony corporatism, and want something better for your children -- contribute to Mike Flynn.
National Journal: Why Four Justices Were Against the Supreme Court's Huge Gay-Marriage Decision
"The majority began its opinion with the line: 'The Constitution promises liberty to all within its reach, a liberty that includes certain specific rights that allow persons, within a lawful realm, to define and express their identity.' Scalia wrote that if he ever were to join an opinion that began with that sentence he 'would hide my head in a bag,' saying such language was more like the 'mystical aphorisms of the fortune cookie'...." [rdbrewer]
Interesting GQ Interview With Pierce Brosnan (From Last Year)
He grew up very poor and fatherless. He liked to box. He's got mixed feelings on Bond.... when the Bond people decided to go in a different direction (as they say), Brosnan's press agent advised him to "resign," to make it seem like it was his idea to quit. Brosnan refused: "No, I don't want to do that, because that's a lie. It's a lie onto myself; it's their decision. Let it be their decision, and however you want to look at it, however it will be defined, then let it find its own course." I like him for that.

Timothy Carney: Second Roberts rewrite turns courts and the IRS into legislators
"Chief Justice John Roberts has built a legislative record to rival Sam Rayburn." [rdbrewer]
