This episode got lively during the last half hour. Fortunately we’re broadcasting from different locations and can’t throw food at each other.

Update: We didn’t cover the potentially huge story of James Wesley Howell’s arrest in Santa Monica, California. The official story in the LA Times is that he just happened to be maybe planning to attack a gay pride parade around the same time as the Orlando shooting. The unofficial story is that he turned himself in to Santa Monica police for his own protection, saying that the CIA and/or FBI had trained him, Omar Mateen and several others for a simultaneous-attacks-on-gay-targets operation…but that when he heard Mateen was dead, he got cold feet.
