My wife has wisely banned me from eating anywhere near the fine new computer she bought me, so I’ll abstain for the moment, but here are some safe virtual goodies:
* PPP survey of Colorado shows Obama lead shrinking from 13 points to 7 (he’s still up 49-42).
* TAP’s Jamelle Bouie explains firing of UVa president Teresa Sullivan as reflecting big donor anger at her resistance to “corporate-style governance.”
* Romney refuses to ask supporters to stop heckling at Obama events.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports on Duquesne University’s unsuccessful effort to claim “religious freedom” means it is exempt from labor laws.
* TPM’s Benjy Sarlin reports on first steps taken by Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
And in non-political news:
* Walgreen buys big stake in European retailer Alliance Boots, creating world’s largest private purchaser of Rx drugs.
Back after I get the requisite ten feet from the iMac and consume a snack.
