Shortly after the slap heard ‘round the world last night, I feared my phone would catch fire from the tweets, messages, and calls. I am notorious for avoiding self-congratulatory award shows, and my friends know it. So they felt compelled to give me the news of Will Smith slapping the taste...

Senator(s) Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, and Tom Cotton wasted well over an hour of the public’s time yesterday. Instead of legitimate questions aimed at advancing the conversation about conservative and liberal legal philosophy, they spent more than an hour trying to punch holes into the fabric of judicial integrity.

Time and anti-tank weapons favor the Ukrainians even if air superiority remains complicated. An extended siege of Kyiv looks possible with the current stalemate, and long-range bombardment continues.

The military situation is not without progress as bombardment continues with little appreciable changes in position. Unfortunately civilians remain in the line of fire.

We haven’t yet reached that point where the losses to the Russians are sustainable. Replacements may be on their way to the front.

Vladimir Putin has made his second foray into Ukrainian territory since 2014, first Crimea and now poised to march into Kyiv.
