“Is Half a Loaf Better Than None?” TODAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

Based on what I’m reading, Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, is about as good as we might expect–although far from perfect. The “half a loaf” saying could also be applied to Trump’s executive order on immigration, although that seems even more problematic than the Gorsuch pick. These stories and more on today’s show.

See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.
