Hope you had some time today to think about Appomattox and what it meant, particularly if you are a southerner. This year’s relatively light commemoration will probably all but vanish next year.
Here are some remains of the day:
* Among GOP legislators, some boycott, some conduct spiritual warfare against Wiccan delivering morning prayer at the Iowa State Capitol. More about that later.
* Revenues from legalized pot in Colorado falling well under estimates.
And in non-political news:
* Walgreen’s to close 200 stores, but robust “cough, cold and flu” season helping bottom line.
That’s it for Thursday. Let’s close with a 1956 performance by Carl Perkins of a song he wrote that made a lot of money for him and for Elvis Presley: “Blue Suede Shoes.”
