Here are some news-cycle Remains of the Day:

* So you think the Obama administration is forcing Catholic colleges to provide contraception coverage? Xavier University in Cincinnati is dropping coverage it has previously offered. Daniel Luzer comments at College Guide.

* Also at College Guide, Daniel reports on Digital Domain “internships” for Florida State students that sound a lot like free labor for the company.

* Melania Trump hosting big birthday party for Anne Romney at Trump Tower. Is that why Mitt’s being so cozy with The Donald?

* Dave Weigel mocks Nikki Haley’s protestations that she’s not interested in Veep nod.

* Students protesting high-cost courses at Santa Monica college pepper-sprayed by campus police.

And in non-political news:

* Howard University deals with possible NCAA violations by suspending all 17 sports teams.

I’ve got a full plate of Holy Week activities beginning tonight and lasting through Easter. But I’ll be back early (if not bright!) tomorrow.
