Had about decided the $199 Chromebook I’ve been using since November was biting the dust when sound suddenly shut down, but it was just teasing me. Thing is, I wouldn’t have been that upset if I’d had to buy a new one. That’s value.
Here are some remains of the day:
* Jeb Bush says: “I’m thinking about running for president.” Better get cracking on your Common Core flip-flop, Jebbie.
* Word to Dinesh D’Souza: Don’t tell cuckolded husband of your lover about your illegal campaign donation schemes!
* Nate Cohn responds to Republican criticism of new Times poll showing Mark Pryor with big lead. He’s a bit more credible on–well, everything–than Bill Kristol.
* At Ten Miles Square, Keith Humphreys discusses the tendency to treat addicted criminal offenders with simple-minded horror or sympathy.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer evaluates a pop music parody complaint about student loan debt.

* As a fan of Iowa culture and of bulldogs, I want to draw attention to this year’s Beautiful Bulldog winner at Drake University, Lucey.
