Oh, that's not my neck. Morning news roundup!
Maybe you’ve seen it already. Maybe you don’t want to. You don’t have to. I give you permission. There are no bodies here, word is they were going to show the bodies and the parents convinced them not to. We don’t need to see the bodies. The AR-15s and the mass shootings. Gift link Washington Post.

But I think it’s notable that if he’d had a gun instead of a hammer, Nancy Pelosi’s husband wouldn’t be suffering from ongoing headaches and struggling to heal; he’d be suffering from ongoing death. Nor will I ever forget that the attack on Paul Pelosi with a hammer is a hilarious laugh line at Trump’s rallies and across the Right. — CNN

Jessica Valenti thinks Trump is going to start taking credit for pro-abortion wins. She is absolutely right. — Abortion Every Day
Everybody was so mad at Tommy Tuberville for hurting national security, but Mitch McConnell decided it was fine after all, so they’re declining to change the rule that says one senator can be a piece of shit as long as he wants to. (Jeff Tiedrich)
Let’s learn from this science nerd about the magma in Iceland that is or is not (is) about to blow! — Slate
The tax police just reformed your college aid application. What used to have 100 questions now has 18, and they’re autopopulated with the info the IRS already has.

Oh hey hey, late breaking good times! Supreme Court tells Florida’s drag ban to eat shit! But only in this particular case on these particular grounds. They might get around to the propers of the case a different time I guess. — NBC News
