Lunch Buffet

We’re a bit ahead in the blogging schedule today, but here are some light treats if you are still hungry:

* Producer of Innocence of Muslims in the hoosegow for multiple probation violations.

* Atlantic‘s Elspeeth Reeve deconstructs Drudge’s racist “Obama Gave Me a Free Phone” video.

* Wealthy defense contractor in Virginia with history of mental illness kills family and self, supposedly out of fear that Obama would be re-elected.

* Krugman explains anti-austerity protests in Spain and Greece.

* LA Times’ David Savage explains Texas college admissions affirmative action program–and similar practices elsewhere–under review by Supreme Court.

And in non-political news:

* German flick big winner at Pyongyang Film Festival, which must have been an interesting event.

Back after some chores.
