As indicated before, I’m on the road tonight, and connections permitting, will luxuriate tomorrow in the relatively late morning of CST. Here are some remainders of the day:

* Slate‘s Dave Weigel supplies a long list of statements by Michigan Gov. Rick Synder prior to last week indicating a lack of interest in the enactment of “right-to-work” legislation. Suddenly it became the most important thing in the whole wide world.

* Sarah Silverman’s got a new video out urging “bros” to get their act together and support reproductive rights.

* Lindsay Graham retreats on support for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, in favor of that fine old South Carolina tradition of “states’ rights.”

* At Ten Miles Square, John Sides addresses those who are enraged by political scientists’ tendency to minimize the importance of redistricting.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports on Catholic University’s continued hard line on recognizing LGBT student groups.

And in non-political news:

* Skyfall rated 2012’s worst movie from point of view of glamorizing smoking–even though Bond’s no longer dragging on those English Ovals.
