Day’s End and Night Watch

Gotta tell you, news cycle blogging has revived my appreciate for weekends, including the one now approaching. Here are a few more items for the indefatigable:

* Tim Noah reports Mitt wants conservatives to think he’s flip-flopped on minimum wage–but he hasn’t.

* Steve Benen notes jobless claims ticking back up. Bummer.

* New survey shows very strong support for CA “Millionaire’s Tax” initiative regardless of the ballot context.

* Solar storms delayed some flights a few minutes, but nothing much worse.

* Adultery site, “Sugar Daddy/Sugar Baby” match services, among Rush’s new sponsors.

* Sarah Posner presents some legitimate questions Mitt should be asked about his faith.

And BTW:

* Inner-city Philly producing star polo players. Take that, one percent!

I’m going to take the night off and await the arrival of tomorrow’s February Jobs Report–after I re-read “The Incomplete Greatness of Barack Obama.”
