So I’m at ATL after a delayed flight, a rebooking, and a near-catastrophic but temporary misplacing of my computer bag. God willing, I’ll get home tonight, or more likely early tomorrow, so forgive me if I’m not bright-eyed and bushy-tailed first thing tomorrow. But it will be a big primary day, so there should be plenty to discuss.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Rick Perlstein looks for an honest conservative, and comes up pretty short.

* The Tea Party Patriots file ethics complaint against Harry Reid with Senate Ethics Committee over his attacks on the Brothers Koch. Strikes me as a pretty good cases for an estoppel via the Clean Hands Doctrine.

* Virginia Postrel takes sides with the Authors Alliance in its battle with the Authors Guild.

* At Ten Miles Square, Martin Longman ponders the fate of New York Giant Will Hill.

* At College Guide, Clare McCann draws attention to Congress’ complicity in efforts to stop effective rating of colleges.

And in non-political news:

* Grant Wahl looks back at the 1989 goal that first qualified the U.S. for the World Cup.

That’s it for this Monday. Let’s close with two of my mother’s favorite singers performing one of her favorite songs: Merle Haggard and Tammy Wynette with “Today I Started Loving You Again.”
