Slog PM: Justice Breyer to Step Down Tomorrow, Alaska Cruise Hits Ice, the NBA Will Be Back in Seattle (Kinda)

Sorry, I know we’re all fucking sick of news from the Supreme Court, but here’s some housekeeping: Justice Stephen Breyer announced that he will officially retire tomorrow at term’s end, reports USA Today. Now, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson—who the Senate confirmed back in April—will take the reins and be sworn in on Thursday, making history as the first Black woman judge on the highest court. Good fuckin’ luck with those zealots on the right!
