I’m winging my way over the Deep South as this post is published, so any really late-breaking news may have to wait until tomorrow. But here’s what I’ve got right now:
* Congressional leaders agree to six-month appropriations deal, to be voted on after the August recess. We’ll see if Tea Folk buy it.
* Romney blames Euro-gaffes on media. Yawn.
* Speaking of yawns, David Brooks is bored by presidential campaign.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports law schools, short on applicants, are offering more generous scholarships.
* Panetta asks Syrian military to stay in place “when”–not “if”–Assad deposed.
And in non-political news:
* Onion recall spreads across U.S. and Canada. And we’re not talking about “The Onion,” so it’s real.
We’ll have election news from Texas and Georgia in the morning.
