Day’s End and Night Watch

Day zoomed by, which is good because I’m about to hop on a conference call with WaMo’s techies to begin a review of how we are doing here traffic-and-social-media-wise.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Yet another Buzzfeed campaign website gotcha: Pat Roberts’ shows field of sunflowers (symbol of Kansas), but actual photo taken in Ukraine.

* January 2004 last time there was plurality for “right track” in a WSJ/NBC poll.

* HuffPost offers quick 5-point summary of Doug Henwood’s paywalled Harper’s cover story encouraging lefty revolt against Hillary Clinton.

* At Ten Miles Square, Martin Longman argues George W. Bush did more damage to the country than did Richard Nixon.

* At College Guide, Stephen Burd reports on Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s warnings about dangers of private student loans.

And in non-political news:

* Florence tops Conde Nast Traveler list of world’s top 25 cities.

That’s it for Monday. Let’s close with some earlier Nine Below Zero, circa 1980, with “Homework.”
