The blogging day must end a bit early due to family/hospital logistics (thanks again to Ryan Cooper for pitching in!), but here are some additional newsie things:

* In non-Polish presidential award news, Obama presents Bob Dylan with Presidential Medal of Freedom.

* Democratic incumbent Silvestre Reyes of West Texas loses his House seat to primary challenger Beto O’Rourke.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports on investigation of Dartmouth trustees for alleged malfeasance and conflict of interest in investing funds.

* At TAP, Jeff Faux provides a good overview of the upcoming Mexican presidential election.

* Matt Yglesias explains why it’s Spain, not Greece, that will determine the future of the eurozone.

And in non-political news:

* Bluegrass icon Doc Watson dies at 89.

Have a peaceful night, everyone. It’s a good bet tomorrow’s political news won’t be peaceful at all.
