Day’s End and Night Watch

Have to say, my Georgia Bulldogs won a game over the weekend that was so bad I almost wish I hadn’t seen it. It’s a perfectly timed bye week now.

Could be a lot worse. I could be a Michigan fan. Condolences to the Wolverines for an unimaginable game-ending disaster.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Looks like Trey Gowdy may have disclosed name of a CIA source as he sought to attribute security breaches to HRC.

* Yeah, CBS/Fox reports that Biden about to announce decision on prez run not necessarily any stronger than last 50 screaming alerts.

* That was fast: Jim Webb reportedly mulling indie run for presidency.

* Blast from the past: House Republicans again moving bill that purports to avoid debt default by instructing Treasury to pay bills beyond debt limit breach.

* Federal court temporarily blocks Louisiana cutoff of Medicaid funds for Planned Parenthood even as Texas moves in the same atavistic direction.

* At Republic 3.0, new research on whether voters in each party prioritize honesty or intelligence.

And in non-political news:

* Nawlins unsurprisingly ranks first among American cities as good place for creative professionals to live.

That’s it for Monday. Let’s close with one more Piano Red tune: “She’s Dynamite.”

Selah.
