"A sharply divided U.S. Supreme Court on Monday stood by its most recent abortion precedent. Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court's four liberals, citing the Supreme Court's adherence to precedent, to invalidate a Louisiana law that required doctors at clinics that perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital." (NPR)

THIS JUST IN: Donald Trump disavowed knowledge of Bounty intelligence saying reports weren't  passed on to him because they weren't credible.



2.5 million cases in the United States

"U.S. coronavirus cases now exceed 2.5 million, with over 125,000 reported fatalities—in both cases the world’s highest. The country’s inability to control the spread of the virus seems likely to result in U.S. citizens being banned from traveling to Europe, for example, where cases are down in some cases 90% from their peak."

FROM CNN:  Only two US states are reporting a decline in new coronavirus cases compared to last week: Connecticut and Rhode Island.

A rise was reported in a staggering 36 states, including Florida, which some experts have cautioned could be the next epicenter for infections. Officials there and across the US are also warning of an increase in cases among younger people.
Florida reported 9,585 new coronavirus cases Saturday, a single-day record since the start of the pandemic. The number rivals those of New York's peak in early April (New York's new case tally Saturday was about 6% of Florida's). On Sunday, Florida's Department of Health reported another 8,530 new cases.

The Last Word

A Fave Cocktail

Editor's Note: This is a good recipe from IMBIBE Magazine. When I make it, I prefer 1-oz. of a dry gin.

I believe this got its start in life at the Detroit Athletic Club.
