2) With the first Democratic presidential debate approaching in October, Vice President Joe Biden likely will need to decide about a presidential run sometime this month. And while it's not really an endorsement, the superPAC that's trying to pull Mr. Biden into the race noted on Thursday that Jim Burn, the outgoing state Democratic party chairman, said he's excited about the possibility of a run by the Scranton native. See you in Pittsburgh on Monday, Mr. Biden.

4) Rand Paul's campaign released an app this week that lets users #StandWithRand, as in take a selfie with a superimposed image of the Republican presidential candidate.

5) Congratulations to James Yates and William Smith Jr.; they're the first same-sex couple to obtain a marriage license in Rowan County, Ky., after Kim Davis, the county clerk, was jailed for refusing to comply with a federal court order to issue marriage licenses to everyone.
