Getting right to it:
1. Plunderbund gives its take on Kevin Coughlin’s pursuit of special ed vouchers.
2. Do not go after Connecticut librarians (Pres. Bush obviously never met one while he was in New Haven for four years at Yale).
5. George is doing a great job frontpaging/flagging items related to the Cuyahoga County Commissioners’ endrun attempts to raise taxes for a convention center and medical mart. Great comments and MUST READ LINK to Bill Callahan.
6. If you haven’t had enough or still don’t know enough about the attempted endrun, listen to Commissioners Tim Hagan and Peter Lawson Jones (who is on record saying that he does not want to raise the tax without a vote) on this morning’s Sound of Ideas. There were a couple of other guests who, by the end, just couldn’t stop talking over one another.
7. Very disturbing decisions coming out of the Supreme Court of the United States today. Absolutely worth your time to read a few – including ones that affect campaign financing, taxpayers ability to sue the government for how it uses our money and whether you can be expelled from school for unfurling a sign that says Bong Hits 4 Jesus.
8. Maggie Thurber flags this interesting website that seeks to follow bills from before they’re even introduced. Wouldn’t that be nice!?
No naps for the weary.
