Okay, tonight is my last in Quebec for this week, so for sure: escargot AND poutine, if the combination isn’t illegal.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Another big no-indictment decision by a grand jury in case of police officer killing unarmed man (Eric Garner).

* Harry Enten notes HRC’s standing in polls has eroded, and may soon erode more.

* TNR’s Jonathan Cohn looks at new health care spending estimates showing cost restraints still in place.

* At Ten Miles Square, Josh Swanner looks closely at D.C. Circuit oral arguments in a new campaign finance case.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer notes exceptionally high error rates in “value added” teacher assessments.

And in non-political news:

* Netflix lays out $90 million to produce new Marco Polo show.

That’s it for Wednesday. Here’s one more shot of Ozzie: Black Sabbath with “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” in 1973.
