Kavanaugh. The Judiciary committee meeting is set for 9:30 AM today, which would end with a vote. If it happens, it’s because Republicans have the votes to get Kavanuagh out of committee. If not, it will be postponed. Last night, the message was that .
I don’t like having to opine on this, because the whole matter is a mess. As dreadful a prospect as Kavanaugh is, if the Dems beat him back, Trump will simply nominate someone at least as bad who will either be a woman or go under tougher review for possible skeletons in their closet.

When Yglesias makes sense…..
I kinda disagree.
In Bush v Gore, Citizens United, Shelby County, throwing out Medicaid expansion, etc the 21st Century SCOTUS has mostly been an accelerant of democratic decline rather than a safeguard and the sooner people realize that the better.

YouTube. A public service announcement. I don’t think I’d be good at this. I’d probably have the wrong tone in my voice telling the police “no” to a request to search without a warrant.

New York Times. “The suit seeks to bar Mr. Musk, who is also Tesla’s chairman, from serving as an executive or director of publicly traded companies like Tesla. Such a punishment is one of the most serious remedies the S.E.C. can impose against a corporate executive.” Moi: The normally craven SEC must see this as slam dunk.

Antidote du jour. Another 2016 submission languishing in my inbox From Jyoti:
Three juvenile Cooper’s Hawks in my back yard near Santa Fe, NM.
After a terrible failure last year our resident pair of Cooper’s Hawks succeeded this time around and produced three offspring. Early on one fledgling fell out of its nest, but the two remanning ones managed to grow into charming young males who were recently joined by a slightly older young female that one day appeared out of nowhere.
Interestingly the parent hawks were the ones who left the scene as soon as the young ones were able to fly and thus were expected to fend for themselves.
