Got a shoutout on Twitter from a Monterey Herald reporter for mentioning local water woes at Lunch Buffet. Last time my stuff got noticed out here was by a staffer at the Henry Miller Library who blasted me as a Beltway Pundit the week after I attended a Lucinda Williams concert at their venue. Go figure.
Here are some final items of the day:
* Republicans cheer possibility of avoiding another Ken Buck Senate nomination as Rep. Cory Gardner announces he’ll run for Mark Udall’s Senate seat in CO.
* In an interesting exercise in ideological disciplinary action, Ben Domenech warns conservatives against any compromise with Keynesianism.
* Bill to avoid annual overriding of Medicare reimbursement rates moving along in both Houses of Congress with bipartisan supoort.
* Texas the very latest state where federal judge has declared same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional.
* At Ten Miles Square, Summer Jiang provides a very useful preview of upcoming DC elections for us outlanders.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports on GAO report showing that increase in student loan borrowing limit would have little or not impact on college costs, rebutting a common conservative assumption.
And in non-political news:
* Perhaps indicating she’s more like Fiona Wallice than we realized, Lisa Kudrow hit with civil judgment that she owes ex-manager $1.6 million in unpaid commissions. Good thing Web Therapy recently renewed for a new season (I love the show myself).
That’s it for Wednesday. Let’s close with one more Fats Domino hit, “I’m Walking,” performed at Jazzfest in 2001.
