Lunch Buffet

Since it’s Good Friday, and Passover also begins tonight with many a fine Seder, I’ll go a little light today:

* Kraft becomes third major corporation to end support for ALEC.

* Hugo Chavez, just back from cancer treatments in Cuba, weeps and begs God for healing at pre-Easter Mass.

* Besieged county clerk in Wisconsin steps aside from voting administration after serial screw-ups raised fears of botched recall election count.

And in non-political news:

* HuffPost shares celebrities’ reflections on their spiritual beliefs. No offense, but not sure my faith is strong enough to endure that.

I’ll be back shortly. Note: since this is a quasi-holiday for many Americans, and I have some Good Friday obligations myself, we’ll be wrapping up a bit early today.
