At WaPo, the most thoughtful commentator on the right, Michael Gerson, on the least thoughtful candidate of the right, Donald Trump. The money quote: "It is all fun and games until the mass roundups begin."

At Public Religion Research Institute, tracking trends on attitudes towards immigration. 

At Millennial, Jonathan Lewis on "the danger of Pope Francis" - well worth reading. Reminds me of the line delivered by Bishop Michael Olsen at his episcopal ordination: "Jesus wants followers, not admirers."

At Politico, Martin O'Malley steals a march on Hillary Clinton: Raise the cap on FICA taxes! An idea whose time should have come in the 1980s, but better late than never.
