Kinda got caught up with a lot of the news stories yesterday that people are talking about today, so I’m glad to wrap up and wait for what is likely to be a resurgence of news tomorrow. Still haven’t figured out how to deal with tomorrow’s debates, but some live-blogging or evening posts are a possibility.
Here are some remains of the day:
* Man carrying a gun and hatchet and deploying tear gas killed by police in a Nashville theater. No one else seriously injured, it seems. No motive established yet.
* Conservative Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upholds district judge’s ruling that new Texas voter ID requirement violates Voting Rights Act.
* At TNR, Rebecca Leber helpfully lists all the non-conventional views of the various GOP presidential candidates.
* At Ten Miles Square, James Wimberly fears same statutory construction rules laid down by Chief Justice in King v. Burwell could generate successful challenge to Obama’s utility regs.
* At Republic 3.0, Anne Kim reports on federal, state and local efforts to encourage healthy grocery options in “food deserts.”
And in non-political news:
* Willie Mae’s Scotch House in New Orleans named best fried chicken restaurant in America.
That’s it for Wednesday. Let’s close with Robert Cray performing “Acting This Way” on Letterman.
