Nap or World Cup? I’ll let my subconscious decide.
Here are some remains of the day:
* New EPI study shows average CEO compensation in 2013 up 21% from 2010. Nice work if you can get it.
* Peter Beinart compares chaos in House GOP with “order and unity” of House Democrats.
* Prospect’s Paul Waldman notes high percentage of conservatives in Pew study saying they want to live in rural areas or small towns. He asks: “What’s stopping you?”
* At Ten Miles Square, Julia Azari uses an anecdote about a 1932 Prohibition activist interpreting the 1932 elections as being about booze to question the willingness of observers to spin mandates from individual elections.
* At College Guide, Sarah Butrymowicz reports on mixed reviews of a trial run in Massachusetts for computerized tests soon to be required under Common Core.
And in non-political news:
* Brazil and Croatia currently tied 1-1 in opening match of World Cup.
That’s it for Thursday. Let’s close with a long but fabulous performance by Five Peace Band, the Chick Corea/John McLaughlin (the guitarist, not the pollster) partnership. The tune is “Raju.”
