By Ed Kilgore

A highly mobile blogging day for me, as it happens; thank God for the cheap laptop and the personal hotspot.

Here are some remains of the day:

* World Health Organization warns we may be entering a “post-antibiotic” era. That’s scary.

* Toronto Mayor Rob Ford may have finally had his last drug-crazed party.

* Alan Abramowitz demonstrates race and religion more potent determinants of voting and even policy positions than income. More about this tomorrow.

* At Ten Miles Square, Julia Azari distinguishes between the implications of a Bush and a Clinton “dynasty.”

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer wonders what might happen if rules to prevent abuses by for-profit colleges were applied to all colleges.

And in non-political news:

* Earliest-yet depictions of Jesus may have been discovered in Coptic tombs in Egypt.

That’s it for May Day. Let’s close with Joan Baez performing “Joe Hill” at Woodstock.

Selah.
