So the latest college football polls are out, and my Georgia Bulldogs are far and away the highest ranked 0-1 team in the country.
Here are some final items of the day:
* In Senate testimony, Kerry backtracks and signals acceptance of resolution barring use of U.S. ground troops.
* To no one’s surprise, AIPAC endorses Syria use-of-force resolution.
* TNR’s Alec MacGillis notes impact of public financing on direction of New York’s mayoral election.
* At Ten Miles Square, Harold Pollack assesses conservative complaints about the treatment of Ronald Reagan’s racial views in The Butler and suggests the movie let him off pretty easy.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reviews evidence that Americans generally share experts’ worries that public colleges are becoming unaffordable.
And in non-political news:
* Pats owner protests he “loves Tim Tebow” very much, but apparently not enough to give him a roster spot.
That’s all for the first full day of a short week. Here’s Merle Haggard again, this time doing his famous impressions of Buck Owens and Johnny Cash with a little help from their own selves, on Glenn Campbell’s TV show.
