Day’s End and Night Watch

So my blogging hiatus started and ended quite a bit later than I expected, but we didn’t miss a whole lot according to the aggregators.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Interesting Jonathan Martin piece about Joe Biden’s appeal to–or the lack thereof–minority voters if he runs against HRC.

* Bernie Sanders gets his first congressional endorsement: Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chair Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ).

* At Ten Miles Square, Martin Longman is fine with Joe Biden taking his time on deciding whether to run for president.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer examines the evidence that business schools are actually undermining the ethics of their graduates.

* At Republic 3.0, Amy Gutmann makes the case for the 21st Century Cures legislation, which is awaiting action in the Senate.

And in non-political news:

* Poppi: Airline industry’s Uber?

That’s it for Wednesday. Let’s close with a live version of “All the Time in the World,” from a 1973 performance by the Climax Blues Band.


UPDATE: In breaking news, Hillary Clinton came out against the Trans-Pacific Partnership in Iowa this afternoon. More about that tomorrow.
