A very lively day, all things considered, and it’s not as though the budget, gun and (tomorrow’s specialty) immigration issues are going away any time soon.
Here are some items left on the cutting room floor, or just eluding my full-blog grasp:
* Ted Cruz not budging on gun filibuster.
* At TNR, John Judis argues that if Dems are going to wage a largely symbolic “crusade,” they might want to focus on the economy rather than guns.
* At Ten Miles Square, Rhiannon Kirkland offers another sad example of the insanely disproportionate nature of minor drug crime sentences.
* At College Guide, Anne Kim evaluates the College Board’s proposal for separate Pell Grant programs for younger and older students.
And in non-political news:
* UConn has little trouble with Louisville in women’s national championship basketball game. One-out-of-two ain’t bad, Cardinals. Huskies now tied w/ Tennessee for most women’s NCAA titles, at eight.
To end the day with another Byrds song involving animals, here they are on German TV performing “Chestnut Mare.”
