Well, hell. I don’t always go out on weeknights, but when I do, I usually fail to blog before bedtime.
At least I got in before the night’s refreshments turned from three beers to four, because that would have meant missing the morning workout, guilt and a lousy Wednesday.
But here’s a lot of tasty linkage to get you through the middle of the week.
How do we solve a problem like Greece? What happens to a modern, westernized, democratic country when it goes bankrupt?
Yet another of what will surely be many, many pieces on how the GOP is reaching Hispanics. (Or, in this case, not.) Pro tip: Tell your people to stop hollering “what part of illegal don’t you understand?” on national TV.
I tried and tried to get to the original of this, but paywalls get two tries and then I give up: Wall Street Journal reader comments to a story about dunking in basketball. I remember when I used to work out at the YWCA in Fort Wayne, and the adults would play after the little kids’ games, when the hoops were lowered. They loved it, because they could dunk. It was hilarious.
What is inequality? A simple comic lays it out pretty well.
For the next three days, the power elite of Michigan will be gathered at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island for the Detroit Chamber’s annual policy conference. Of course they’ll be shadowed by the media, who are given the run of the place, including the free-flowing booze stations. This leads to a parade of social-media over-the-topness that’s enough to make your stomach turn. Fortunately, someone has foreseen the need for mockery.
We need Cooz to wake up and tell us more about the GOP’s attempted coup at the University of North Carolina.
That is all, I guess. A lovely day in progress where I am. Hope it’s good where you are, too.
