Lunch Buffet

Having lunch at the legendary Palmer’s deli before heading to KC for the flight back home. Here are some midday news/views snacks from the specials board:

* WaPo breakdown on the different categories of people on the streets of Ferguson.

* Paul Waldman fusses at those inevitably warning about “politicization” of Ferguson. How else will things change?

* Proposed KKK fundraiser for accused cop too sketchy even for KKK.

* TNR’s Danny Vinik thinks Cincinnati precedent might work for Ferguson.

* RCP’s Adam O’Neal looks at five major races that could well turn on immigration policy.

And in non-political news:

* Johnny Manziel did not have a very good evening against Washington last night.

As we break for lunch, here’s Ginger Baker’s Air Force live in 1970 performing “What a Day.”
