Lunch Buffet

Another busy morning, accompanied by some practice rounds for National Junk Food Day, which arrives on Saturday. I do, however, think it should be held during college football season. Anyway, here are some news treats of varying nutritional value:

* Yglesias wonders if Romney took advantage of a 2009 amnesty program for Americans hiding funds in Swiss accounts. We won’t know until he releases returns, will we?

* Glenn Greenwald moving his work to the Guardian.

* Nate Silver slightly downgrades Obama’s re-election odds due to weakening GDP forecasts.

* Huck argues Boy Scout homophobia justified to protect kids from abuse. Sure he’s a bigot, but he tells jokes and plays bass guitar!

* WaPo poll shows majority of DC residents want Mayor Vincent Gray to resign over campaign finance scandal.

And in non-political news:

* Paltrow negotiating to star in movie from foodie memoir “Blood, Bones & Butter.”

Back after a blood-bones-butter break.
