First you may want to spend 87 seconds with these baby pandas.  How can you not?  (Thanks, Mel!)

And now, here’s Paul Krugman on Jeb’s voodoo economics.  (His Florida economic miracle was built on the housing bubble — which burst just after he left office.)

And Pope Francis on climate change.  (“The vision Francis outlined in a 184-page papal encyclical is sweeping in ambition and scope: He describes relentless exploitation and destruction of the environment and says apathy, the reckless pursuit of profits, excessive faith in technology and political shortsightedness are to blame.  The most vulnerable victims, he declares, are the world’s poorest people . . .“)

Does it strike you as ironic that the chairs of the relevant House and Senate committees believe climate change is a hoax, while virtually the entire scientific community — and the Pope! — recognize it as an urgent, epic problem?  (Jeb, a Catholic, seems conflicted on this score.  “Speaking at a town hall campaign event in New Hampshire on Tuesday, Bush, who converted to Catholicism 20 years ago, all but dismissed the pope’s new encyclical on the environment . . .”)
