Happy Birthday to Sue Lyon, who is, believe it or not, 66. Lolita is the one I usually think of as my favorite Kubrick movie, and I pretty much like every Kubrick movie, even the failures.
But enough of that; on to the good stuff:
1. A good Brendan Nyhan column about how the press is covering some Obama campaign claims -- and how they could do better.
2. There are eight -- eight -- contested House seats in New York. Kate Nocera tells the stories.
3. Ezra Klein on the Obama Administration choices that brought them to yesterday's tax initiative.
4. I linked this over at the other place too, but I really like Greg Marx on how reporters should treat politician promises. And not because he uses my WaMo piece, but because he builds on it really smartly.
