Saturday Morning Open Thread

Open Thread.

Update (TL): If you haven't yet voted in Colorado's primary, it's too late to mail your ballot but you can drop it off. Find your location here for any county. I have endorsed Sen. Michael Bennet, and BTD says if he were voting in Colorado, he'd vote for him too.

    an Associate Justice.  (Three of the four women who have ever served on the Supreme Court of the United States are presently serving.)  I hope most of the things her Republican Senate opponents said about her turn out to be true.

    a stunning performance by actress Jennifer Lawrence as a 17 year old daughter trying to uncover the fate of her father among the criminal clans of the Ozarks in Missouri.

    really extraordinary...
