MaddowBlog will probably be pretty quiet today in honor of the 4th of July holiday. That said, I’ll be around and may jump back in if there’s a major, unexpected news development.
 
We’ll return to a normal schedule on Tuesday morning.
 
In the meantime, this can serve as an open thread. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
