Saint Louis (AFP) – Colin Kaepernick threw two touchdown passes, and the San Francisco 49ers defeated the St. Louis Rams 35-11 in an NFL game, improving to 2-2 on the season.

San Francisco’s Frank Gore rushed 20 times for 153 yards, including a 34-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, while Kendall Hunter ran 29 yards and Anthony Dixon ran one yard for fourth-quarter touchdowns to spark the 49ers.

Kaepernick completed 15-of-23 passes for 167 yards and found Anquan Boldin five times for 90 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

Kaepernick added a 12-yard touchdown passes to Vernon Davis in the third quarter to give the 49ers a 21-3 lead, and St. Louis never got within 17 points again.

Sam Bradford flipped a six-yard touchdown pass to Lance Kendricks in the fourth quarter, but it was too little and too late for the Rams, who fell to 1-3.

Just over year before her untimely death on Friday, the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg appeared as a guest lecturer for the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, AR with National Public Radio correspondent Nina Totenberg. The crowd that signed up to see "Notorious RBG" live was so large that the event had to be moved to a major sports arena – and they weren't disappointed by the wide-ranging, hour-long interview.

Witty, charming, brilliant, principled, Ginsburg represented the very best of American liberalism and modern feminism. Listen to her and you'll feel even more deeply what former President Bill Clinton says in his poignant introduction: "Only one of us in this room appointed her…but all of us hope that she will stay on that court forever."
