Con-etiquette — Lucienne Diver is wise. (Via Marta Murvosh.)

Bits of Mystery DNA, Far From ‘Junk,’ Play Crucial Role

NY court to decide if lap dance is tax-exempt art — In Oregon, nude dancing is protected as artistic expression in the state constitution. Not sure why that's the case, but it is.

Putin leads young cranes in flight — Because, uh. Nope. I got nothing.

The First Lady of America — Ta-Nehisi Coates on Michelle Obama.

The Public Seems to Dislike Unified Government Even More Than Dysfunction

Mike Huckabee is lying. Again.And Mike Huckabee is telling a particularly stupid lie. President Obama speaks in public, a lot. And almost every word he has said for the past several years has been recorded on video. So claiming that Obama never says something he says all the time — the president loves quoting the Declaration — either reveals Huckabee’s hamfistedness as a liar, or else it reveals his utter contempt for those in his audience, whom he assumes are too stupid not to just swallow every bogus word he feeds them. That last would pretty much be the basis of the entire Romney-Ryan campaign, which is explicitly and knowingly promoting massive lies.

Most probably, yes. Just for you, though, so don't let the word get around.
