Good morning, everybody. The U.S. and England are out. Now, your morning constitutional:
Elana Kagan’s confirmation hearings begin today. How Republicans are struggling for a line of attack. Slate wonders: How many votes will Elena Kagan get?

The people of Kyrgyzstan voted to approve a new constitution on Sunday, setting up the first parliamentary democracy in Central Asia.
Sitting up straight actually bad for your back.
