So I’m at the doctor’s office, and since bronchitis is “going around” in these parts, I have just been given an antibiotic and some serious cough syrup. Yum.
Here are some remains of the day:
* Vance McAllister’s preacher, alleging a “conspiracy,” says the congressman’s district office manager is the one leaking the video of the now-famous make-out session. Sounds like ol’ Vance was quite the beloved boss.
* Pew reports percentage of “stay-at-home-moms” back on rise after decades of declining numbers. A Great Recession will do that for you.
* Though already left for dead by the D.C. punditocracy, Mark Pryor still leads Tom Cotton in Arkansas Senate race.
* At Ten Miles Square, Henry Farrell examines the hazy rules governing “sponsored content” on political sites.
* At College Guide, Gene Maeroff looks at evidence of what does and doesn’t work in extended school hours experiments.
And in non-political news:
* It’s the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron’s 715th home run. Remember it like it was yesterday.
That’s it for Tuesday. We’ll close with Nirvana’s religion-is-the-opiate-of-the-masses tune “Lithium.”
