A belated “have an easy fast” to those of you who are commemorating Yom Kippur.
Here are some midday news/views snacks for those who are not abstaining:
* Pope Francis addresses U.S. bishops; remarks on clergy abuse draw mixed reviews from victims.
* Walker’s official campaign lasted 70 days, the least of any presidential candidate in either party since 2000.
* New Florida poll shows Jeb Bush running third, 20 points behind Trump and 8 points behind Rubio.
* Sean Trende doubles down on the horse-race metaphor, and suggests two candidates scratching early is normal.
* Boehner coup talk swirls around the House; enough to make a guy crave a cigarette or even cry.
And in non-political news:
* Yogi Berra dies at 90.
As we break for lunch and exchange Yogi-isms, here’s Roy Buchanan performing “The Messiah Will Come Again” live in 1976.
