Not the slowest Monday in recent weeks, but not a barnburner by any means. Good time to check out the March/April issue of the Washington Monthly.
Here are some remainders of the day:
* Greg Sargent catches New York Times’ Bill Keller in a repetition of the mendacious GOP talking point about Obama only offering tax increases in budget talks.
* The Atlantic’s Derek Thompson takes closer look at corporate profits surge and flagging GDP and employment.
*At Ten Miles Square, Sarah Binder discusses the conditions under which the Hastert Rule might indeed die.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports sequestration will zap 33,000 college work-study slots.
And in non-political news:
* Former fashion model sues Mad Men for a bundle over unauthorized use of her image in the show’s opening credits.
To close the day, here again are Beck, Bogert & Appice from grainy 1973 footage, this time covering “Superstition.”
