Let’s start the week with some good news

Jeffrey Epstein, accused serial child molester, has been arrested in NYC: “Epstein, who has homes in Manhattan, Palm Beach, New Mexico, Paris and in the U.S. Virgin Islands, sexually abused nearly three dozen girls, mostly 13-16 years old, at his Palm Beach mansion from 1999 to 2006, according to investigators. He used the girls to help recruit other young girls as part of an operation that ran similar to a pyramid scheme. He also had recruiters who helped with his appointments, scheduling as many as three or four girls a day, the FBI probe found.” I hope this goes better than the botched prosecution in Florida by Alex Acosta, now a Trump cabinet secretary — and kudos to the Miami Herald for their outstanding investigative work on this (including this article).

Amazon has decided to stop carrying books by a virulent anti-gay activist and advocate for conversion therapy. And the Ravelry knitting website says no white supremacists.

Washington’s Supreme Court ruled a florist who refused to provide flowers for a gay wedding violated the law. The U.S. Supreme Court told them to reconsider in light of the Colorado bakeshop case. The Washington judges voted unanimously to stick with their decision.

For all the talk of Dems becoming a “circular firing squad” doing Trump’s job for them, the candidates are rallying against the birther attacks on Kamala Harris.

James Alex Fields, who drove his car into the crowd in Charlottesville, will be spending life in prison.

Speaking of circular firing squads, the efforts to stop one conservative teen from attending Harvard were launched by fellow conservatives.

The AMA is suing North Dakota over its new anti-abortion restrictions. Among other issues, they object to doctors being forced to lie and tell patients that abortion by drug can be reversed.

Billy Joel shits on Nazis.
