Nothing like a quick romp through Tudor history to bring the day to a close! But here are some news leftovers:
* No surprise here, but worth noting that Gallup reports 82% of U.S. Catholics find birth control “morally acceptable.” I doubt they are talking about the rhythm method.
* At WSJ’s MarketWatch, Rex Nutting notes that federal spending since Obama got hold of the wheel has risen at slowest pace since Ike’s first term.
* At Ten Miles Square, Jonathan Bernstein discusses rising age of incoming senators in recent years.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer assesses five different avenues for dealing with out-of-control student loan debt.
* At TNR, Tim Noah shreds David Brooks’ argument that private equity firms like Bain represent a “reform movement.”
And in non-political news:
* Inventor of TV remote control device dies at 96.
Back tomorrow morning, hoping that Bookergate will be gone for good, along with all these defenses of Bain Capitol as a place filled with the milk of human kindness.
