Happy Birthday to Todd Linden, 34. I really did think he could hit a little.

More expected from the Supreme Court today. Meanwhile, some good stuff:

  1. Kevin Drum asks some good, skeptical questions about polls finding that liberals are more open to compromise than conservatives. Hey, pollsters!
  2. While Ezra Klein points out that if the polls are right, the aversion to compromise is preventing some interesting alliances.
  3. Are both sides getting it wrong on the wave of children at the borders? Dara Lind explains why they might be.
  4. Seth Masket on Vox, liberals, and open minds.
  5. And Dan Drezner asks where the biggest threats to the U.S. are found.
