By Ed Kilgore

I’m wrapping up a bit early due to election-watching responsibilities. We’ll obviously have full results and analysis of the primaries first thing tomorrow.

Here are some remains of the day:

* First really detailed report out on specific U.S. geographical risk factors associated with climate change. It’s scary.

* Appeal of Patent Office invalidation of Washington’s NFL nickname trademark may turn on what was considered offensive in 1967, when the mark was first registered.

* Arkansas 2d District GOP chairman will rightly be barbecued for saying HRC would “probably get shot at the state line” if she returned.

* At Ten Miles Square, Jonathan Bernstein examines alternatives to gridlock in Washington’s immediate future.

* At College Guide, Robert Kelchen looks at trends in Pell Grant finances.

And in non-political news:

* Looks like another biting incident for Uruguay’s Luis Suarez in World Cup match with Italy.

That’s it for Tuesday. Let’s close with Jeff Beck performing “Little Wing” at the Royal Albert Hall earlier this year.

Selah.
