Another wild week as we all mosey along in the great cattle drive of life. Who knows if the political thunder and lightning around us mean anything?
Yeah, I need a weekend. But first, here are some final items of the day:
* Very good Carlson/Blumenthal breakdown on deteriorating odds of GOP takeover of Senate.
* Brother Benen has report on latest judicial setback for Ohio Secretary of State’s efforts to restrict early voting on weekend before November 6.
* Good historical account at ScienceNews of efforts to spread political misinformation via Twitter.
* At Ten Miles Square, Jonathan Bernstein makes case for value of political promises.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports Sarah Lawrence’s dubious distinction in becoming first college to charge over $60,000 for a year’s tuition, fees, and room & board.
And in non-political news:
* At end of first inning, Braves and Cards scoreless. If I hadn’t agree to do a long radio show a bit later (just a glutton for punishment!), I’d definitely tune out of politics and into baseball.
Ah, but tomorrow, there’s a college football game featuring my team playing in the city of my birth. I anticipate a long home tailgate party.
Having made a strong impression last weekend, Simon van Zuylen-Wood will be back for an encore engagement as Weekend Blogger. As always, please give him your full attention.
