Well, with the Royal Baby born and named and a sense of fatigue settling over the Weiner affair, maybe real news will make a comeback tomorrow.
Here are some final items of the day:
* Obama nominates Caroline Kennedy ambassador to Japan. Didn’t become senator, but will soon be talking with them.
* The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates calmly takes apart Ray Kelly’s claims that stop-and-frisk responsible for lower murder rates.
* DKos’ Joan McCarter explains Harry Reid’s confirmation blitz next week, which will include full slate of NLRB nominations.
* At Ten Miles Square, Mark Kleiman notes Ken Cuccinelli’s hypocrisy in pulling back from enforcement of anti-adultery laws.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer discusses Sallie Mae Foundation report on how students pay for college.
And in non-political news:
* At least 35 reported dead in horrific train derailment in Spain.
To end the day, here’s Doug & the Slugs’ infectiously catchy 1983 tune: “Who Knows How To Make Love Stay?” This should become a standard wedding song. Maybe it is in Canada.
