Day’s End and Night Watch

Gotta say I enjoyed the interaction with you Animals on music today. I learned more than I taught, not to mention realizing that back there in the early 70s I was part of a bigger community than I realized.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Unclear what Senate GOPers will do if–more likely when–House-passed DHS bill invalidating old and new DACA cannot get through their chamber.

* Interesting New York Times piece on Fox’s Megyn Kelly’s unpredictable moments of dissent from The Party Line.

* At The Atlantic, David Graham notes old idea of Supreme Court decisions being nullified by refusal of states to implement them is making a comeback in anticipation of possible SCOTUS decision striking down gay marriage bans.

* At Ten Miles Square, Martin Longman finds great irony in Rick Santorum’s embrace of a 1924 immigration law that decimated access to legal immigration for his own ethnic group.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports on a very unsuccessful college “rebranding” effort in England.

And in non-political news:

* Really big snowstorm heads towards Megalopolis, could arrive this weekend.

That’s it for Wednesday. We’ll close with a very rare video of a very rare (maybe unique) Eno single, “The Seven Deadly Finns.” Who knew he could yodel?
