Happy Birthday to Valerie Harper, 74. Was in "Blame it on Rio." Also a Columbo. Seems totally weird to me that most young folks nowadays don't watch the classic sitcoms; one of the few things that definitely makes me feel like an old guy.
Also some good stuff:
1. I pretty much disagree with Scott Lemieux about the filibuster, but I do agree with him that it doesn't really matter what the Framers thought.
2. I still love the election reports series from the Monkey Cage. One of the most valuable things out there. This time, it's Natalia C. Del Cogliano and Mariana L. Prats on Argentina.
3. And Nixon just keeps on saying horrible things. Elspeth Reeve has more.
