Until We Meet Again…

Well, Animals, it’s been another delightful weekend blogging for you, and I’m grateful to Ed Kilgore and Washington Monthly for inviting me in.

I got a bit carried away, I’m afraid, with writing that post about Santorum and the U.N. treaty, so hence the late sign-off.

I leave you with a few things worthy of your attention:

* President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner met privately at the White House today. No report of progress or lack thereof; just a statement from both parties that the “lines of communication remain open.”

* The Hillary 2016 talk continues, with no lesser a light than Newt Gingrich weighing in on her invincibility.

* Paul Krugman drives Mary Matalin and George Will insane on “This Week”.

* Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne waxes poetic on the legacy of the late Dave Brubeck, who introduced a generation college students to jazz, and who died this week at the age of 91.

Until next we meet, you can find me at AlterNet, or follow me on Twitter: @AddieStan

And with that, a treat for the ears.
