We’ll be sneak previewing a major article from the next issue of WaMo tomorrow, and following it up here at PA with a roundtable discussion. Stay tuned.

* Local Upstate SC story on Graham’s presidential announcement.

* In first day of avalanche of June decisions, SCOTUS rules on fairly narrow grounds in favor of woman denied job because of Muslim head scarf.

* SCOTUS also decides in favor of man facing criminal charges for threats made on Facebook, but avoids large First Amendment issues.

* In WaPo op-ed, Anne Kim presents data showing “moderate” Members of Congress have to spend a lot more on reelection.

* In what’s becoming a pattern, Rand Paul “walking back” comment that GOP rivals hoping for terrorist attack.

And in non-political news:
