OK, I’m done with the long intros. Here are some items I’ve bookmarked over the last 7 days:

Condor Friedersdorf on the 2nd amendment (and the 4th and the 5th and the 6th) (h/t Jon Fasman)

“Cats Are Evil” (h/t Farhad Manjoo)

“Frequently, when I travel outside of the USA, my trips to the local McDonald’s are the most genuinely foreign-feeling and disorienting part of the trip.” (h/t Conor Friedersdorf)

Althouse on Republicans on immigration

Pain in the NFL (h/t Ben Walsh)

Advancements in the diagnosis of CTE and the future of football

Duh, I watch Love It Or List It

Climate change: the shift from reversing/preventing to adapting

Sports whose participants have the highest likelihood of truly being “the best at what they do”

“Where are the Bicycles in Post-Apocalyptic Fiction?”

I think that was enough, but just for the fun of it, here’s one that’s been on my unread items for six weeks that I finally got to:
