Still blogging from Highway 101. You don’t want to know.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Government forces clash with armed separatists in Eastern Ukraine.

* Legislation is moving in the legislature of the Gret State of Looziana to make the Holy Bible–the King James version, mind you—the official State Book. I figure Bobby Jindal will endorse it before breakfast.

* Obama commutes long prison sentence of Texas man convicted of possession-with-intention-to-distribute after “sentencing error.”

* At Ten Miles Square, Mark Kleiman cites Mark Begich’s ad attacking Obamacare’s detractors as a model for red-state Democrats.

* At College Guide, Jon Marcus notes California has subpar record for percentage of Latinos attending and graduating from college.

And in non-political news:

* KFC offers Kentucky Fried Corsage for prom-goers.
