Wish my flight was on the fancy new Councourse E, with all the power outlets. Here on Concourse D, you have to fight with surly gamers for power. There is a Five Guys, though.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Mike Pence gets a Wall Street Journal presidential profile.

* Pew finds 32% of Americans think houses of worship should endorse political candidates, up from 22% in 2002.

* Gitmo, the “most expensive prison in the world,” is physically deteriorating at an alarming pace.

* Big Politico profile on Lois Lerner makes her sound significantly less satanic than she’s been painted by conservatives who believe in constitutional right to untaxed secret political donations.

* Michael Boggs judicial nomination finally sunk.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer defends the much-maligned university endowment managers.

And in sorta non-political news:

* Chelsea Clinton baby watch dominates media attention for Global Clinton Initiative meeting.

That’s it for Monday. Let’s close with Leonard Cohen talking about and then performing probably his best-known song: “Suzanne.”
