MaddowBlog will probably be pretty quiet today in honor of the 4th of July holiday weekend.

MaddowBlog will probably be pretty quiet today in honor of the 4th of July holiday weekend.
That said, I'll be around and may jump back in if there's a major, unexpected news development.
 
Looking ahead, readers should check back on Saturday morning -- there will be a new installment of "This Week in God" -- and we'll return to a normal schedule on Monday morning.
 
In the meantime, this can serve as an open thread. Have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
