Read Stuff, You Should

Happy Birthday to the other Frank Thomas, 83. I think he's the best player to be "the other", isn't he? No, Ken Griffey Sr. doesn't count. Cool most-similar list, and not just because Bobby Thomson is #1. I was always a big George Bell fan.

Anyway, moving to the good stuff:

1. Coming soon, perhaps: Congressional data. David Fahrenthold explains.

2. Sarah Posner updates on the fight against Planned Parenthood.

3. Andrew Sprung is upset that Barack Obama is Congress-bashing again, instead of Republican-bashing. My guess? The White House is listening to polling and focus groups.

4. For Josh Putnam (and he's not the only one) it's always time to think about presidential nomination rules -- including a sneak preview of a possible 2016 schedule. Actually, there's real news in that post, which is that it doesn't look as if this is going to be even a mild reform cycle.

5. And back to the theme I started with up top...Dave Gilson brings us today's quiz: Jim Messina Obama email subject line....or Loggins and Messina song?


  1. one of these days Obama is going to realize that to pass a domestic agenda -- as opposed to killing his fellow Muslims -- he is going to need this thing called the Democratic Party.

    However, I predict that will be several years after he retires.

  2. I think you could make a case for Sad Sam Jones and (Happy?) Sam Jones.

    The latter didn't have a stellar career, but he was a serviceable SP. As for Sad Sam, he just might have dubious distinction of being the best pitcher with a K/BB ratio of less than 1:1.
