CNN. “Democratic National Committee members [on the Rules and Bylaws Committee, from which all Sanders supporters have been purged] voted Saturday to accept a recommendation to ‘revise the role and ‘” of superdelegates.” That is, the RBC rejected the recommendations of the Unity Reform Commission to reduce the number of superdelegates by 60%. From the end of the story, they also did nothing to “[pull] back the curtain on the party’s fundraising and finance agreements with candidates.” Status quo, no change, it’s a public relations issue, move along, people, move along. There’s no story here.
Boston Globe. Kennedy: “If you smelled [marijuana] in a car, you could search a car. When it became decriminalized, you couldn’t do that.”

Jill Abramson, Guardian. “I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse.” Peak liberalism.
NYT. “[Quondam Nike exective and pig farmer] Mr. Hagerman sits down with his sketch book, in his regular seat, in the same room, with his same triple, whole milk latte and cranberry scone he has each day at Donkey Coffee…. Donald Trump’s victory shook him…. [And so he] swore that he would avoid learning about anything that happened to America after Nov. 8, 2016.” I was wrong. This is peak liberalism.
NYT. Voters, it is perhaps needless to say. “Our analysis shows that while 9 percent of Obama 2012 voters went for Mr. Trump in 2016, 7 percent — that’s more than four million missing voters — stayed home. Three percent voted for a third-party candidate… Whether Democrats can mobilize these voters is an open question, however.”

Antidote du jour ():
And a bonus anti-antidote:
Nature's Little Shop of Horrors
This Hawk (Sphingidae) has been host to an Akanthomyces fungus, a Cordyceps anamorph peculiar to moths. As if snap frozen, the fungus totally engulfs and embalms the corpse producing this macabre sight.
