Happy Birthday to Gina Schock, 55. Just watched the Go-Go's concert in Central Park video again the other day: excellent.
A little bit of good stuff:
1. I thought that when I was mostly not listening to Rand Paul I heard him tell the Ronald Reagan's drunk dad story -- and, apparently, he did. Noah Millman notes that it wouldn't have made any more sense had I heard the full (out-of) context.
2.Video fun: Michele Goldberg interviews Jon Voight.
3. Matt Yglesias looks beyond the question of one plant in one town to ask about overall manufacturing in the Obama era. Good post, but where's the parody song about the Jainsville factory?
