It’s the story of a sitting Republican Congresswoman, her former Army-Ranger-top-federal-prosecutor-husband, and their son.
Love is love.
Read it here.
Of special note: the reaction of his 86-year-old abuelo (grandfather).
Is this a great country, or what?

Responding to my recent post on gun safety, Bill Briggs writes: “Well regulated? I don’t understand how those words of the Second Amendment are so universally overlooked by everyone in regard to the purchase and use of firearms. One of the definitions of ‘regulate’ is . . . ‘reg·u·late … 1. To control or direct according to rule, principle, or law.’ There is nothing ‘well regulated’ about people buying up weapons without any legal restrictions, registration, or permit. And the amendment does not seem to put any limits on the extent of regulation.”
☞ So if more than 90% of us want universal background checks, including 74% of NRA members — and pretty close to that want other common sense safety measures — maybe the NRA should allow Congress to pass them?
Quote of the Day
It turns out that advancing equal opportunity and economic empowerment is both morally right and good economics, because discrimination, poverty and ignorance restrict growth, while investments in education, infrastructure and scientific and technological research increase it, creating more good jobs and new wealth for all of us.~Bill Clinton
