Tomorrow I’m doing an interview on my book at local public radio station KAZU that may mess with the schedule just a bit, but you may not even notice.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Jury finds Tsarnaev guilty on all 30 charges.

* Rand Paul somehow thinks he can get away with angrily dodging questions about the extent of an abortion ban he would favor.

* At TNR Naomi Shavin calls Carly Fiorina the new Sarah Palin. I don’t agree (I’d say Carly is the new Herman Cain), but you can read it yourself.

* At National Journal Rebecca Nelson talks to the closeted Republicans of Silicon Valley. Cry me a river, ye persecuted rich kids.

* At Ten Miles Square, Martin Longman suggests the community organizers in Ferguson did a lot better than those registering voters.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer deplores the University of Florida’s predictable but obnoxious lurch into admissions contingent on never setting foot on campus.

And in non-political news:

* Tiger-mania returns to The Masters.

That’s it for Tuesday. We’ll close with one more Buddy Guy cover of one more Junior Kimbrough tune: “Stay All Night.” Mississippi meets Chicago.
