Just went through airport security, so just have time for the final post before taking wing to Newark, which is lovely this time of year.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Big changes at TNR: Foer out again, and Wieseltier (!) out too, as company moves to NY.

* Already getting some ’16 Senate polling, as Ayotte narrowly leads Hassan in hypothetical NH contest.

* Pelosi hanging tough on price for helping Republicans keep government open while posturing on immigration.

* At Ten Miles Square, Julia Azari is skeptical about efforts to make U.S. political parties more internally democratic.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer argues smart kids really don’t have trouble getting into really good colleges.

Flight’s boarding, so here’s The Beatles with “Every Little Thing.”
