Flights look to be on time for a change, so I’ll be off to ATL via SFO directly. One of these days I’ll be on one of those new-fangled planes with internet access.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Here’s Daily Kos Electionspreview of Tuesday’s primaries in MA, NH, NY (state offices) and RI. We’ll talk about them here tomorrow.

* House Republicans treat themselves to another pre-election pep talk from Dick Cheney. Fun fun.

* McAuliffe concedes defeat on major Medicaid expansion; VA Republicans can congratulate themselves for denying 375,000 citizens health coverage.

* At Ten Miles Square, Keith Humphreys provides an update on the “transformational” improvements in mental health treatment the Affordable Care Act should generate.

* At College Guide, Jon Marcus discusses the frustration of college alumni offices caused by more frequent student transfers, causing multiple alma maters.

And in non-political news:

* Ray Rice released by Ravens and suspended by NFL after video appears of violence by the running back against his fiancee.

That’s it for Monday. Here’s one more Eddie Cochran tune: “C’mon Everybody!”
