Good morning! It’s Separation of Church and State Day, which commemorates the 1963 Supreme Court decision in Abington School District v. Schempp, the law that declared that school-sponsored Bible readings were unconstitutional.
It’s also National Chocolate Day, and yes, I’m well aware I buried the lede. Thrillist has a list of free and cheap chocolate deals, and some (incorrect) soul has tried to rank chocolate candy in honor of the day. Plain M&Ms are on the list, though, and they’re an abomination.
Oh, hey, did you know it’s only 6 days until the election? Well, if not, someone will text you shortly to remind you, so let’s get to the news!
