I know readers are tired of hearing about my dental issues (though not half as tired as I am of experiencing them), but I need to mention yet another appointment this afternoon to seek the long-awaited permanent bridge, because it may produce a delay in the last post or two. I profoundly hope this is the last time I have to mention this.
Here are some midday dentist-approved snacks:
* Very weird Economist/YouGov interactive poll shows 71% of 2012 Obama voters “regret” their vote, though 79% said they’d do it again. See if you can make sense of it.
* Hulse/Martin piece in New York Times suggests big factor in GOP debt limit strategy was belief that absent an opinion-changing crisis, Republicans will be able to overwhelm Dems in November (and earlier) with vast sea of money.
And in non-political news:
* Winter storms may not be over, but baseball’s spring training now underway in FL and AZ.
As we break for lunch, here’s another song about the creative struggle (and procrastination!): Procol Harum’s “Without a Doubt.” Just the first part, all I need/The rest will come with lightning speed. Yeah, right.
