Happy Birthday to Jim Thome, 43.
Right to the good stuff:
1. Dahlia Lithwick on Ginsburg and Scalia.
2. Good catch on Ted Cruz, from Juliet Lapidos.
3. I sort of wonder if we'll hit the point of some Republican Member of Congress refusing his or her salary -- and trying to get away with refusing staff salaries. Until then, we have this. Brian Beutler reports.
