A slow news day that still provided plenty to talk about. Not enough for a single additional post, maybe, but enough for what we do.
Here are some remains of the day:
* Jeb Bush becomes eleventh official “real” GOP candidate for president. His big line: presidency “should not be passed on from one liberal to the next.” Brilliantly imaginative, eh?
* Steve Waldman pens new and important argument for using National and Community Service funds to subsidize local news coverage. More about that later.
* At Ten Miles Square, Martin Longman argues with Ryan Cooper in opposition to the National Popular Vote Initiative. I’m with Ryan on this one, and may respond to Martin tomorrow.
* At College Guide, Jill Barshay cites research showing procrastination on homework hurts performance. I disagree with that one, too, but only from personal experience.
* At The Grade, Alexander Russo assesses the points made by a conservative critic of educatoi journalism.
And in non-political news:
* Best day to apply for a job, say researchers, is Tuesday.
That’s it for the day before Tuesday. We’ll close with one of Waylon Jennings’ most apt anthems, “I’ve Always Been Crazy,” from 1978.
