Sorry for the erratic blogging schedule this morning, but we had a WaMo staff meeting I had to attend by phone. I may have been the only participant distracted by squawking sea gulls rather than honking car horns.
Here’s some mid-day flotsam and jetsam, lightly seasoned:
* Permanent members of U.N. Security Council meeting on Syria this afternoon.
* PPP’s Jensen says their polling suggests Colorado recall won by making case against “gun control” broader than actual laws its targets supported.
* 9/11 Commission co-chairs argue congressional oversight of homeland security is the area where its recommendations implemented the least.
* TNR’s Jonathan Cohn warns against Democratic acceptance of “clean” CR as some sort of compromise with craziness.
* At TAP, Jonathan Bernstein argues that ignoring legacy of Bush administration torture policies has debilitated GOP foreign policy establishment just when we need one.
And in non-political news:
* US team officially qualifies for 2014 World Cup.
As we break for lunch, here’s another song inspired by 9/11: Sleater-Kinney’s “Far Away.” Please feel free to post any 9/11 reminiscences you’d like in the comment thread.
