Sad to learn of Bob Edgar's death. A true idealist, he devoted himself to my old friend Paul Simon's long-shot race for POTUS in '88.
Bulls win in Brooklyn tonight was gritty, Chicago basketball! Noah was heroic.

Question: Where did Boston Bombers get the arsenal they used to shoot it out with police, killing one officer and badly wounding another?

4/23 for state-of-play on climate change.
Kudos to IL Sen. Mark Kirk, one of the few Rs with the guts to stand up to NRA today for common sense background checks.
"All in all this was a pretty shameful day for Washington." -President Obama after the Senate gun control bill was blocked
No Senator who heeled today on the NRA's command should have the gall to issue mournful statements the next time gun violence strikes.
Having killed background checks, Senate now voting on Grassley substitute for the protection of politicians looking for cover.
Interested to see if Bloomberg and others who've worked hard on this issue remain active in 2014 elections, holding no votes accountable.
A bunch of suburban, swing district Republicans in House are probably deeply relieved that Senate appears poised to kill background checks.
90% or not, until Congress feels a backlash from voters for opposing common sense laws like background checks, they won't cross gun lobby.
Sitting on runway at DCA. Anyone know when they're going to lift LGA ground hold?

Sorry folks, I'm not interesting in beating up the President today. God bless him. He's got his work cut out for him.
First instinct of most politicians is survival, & many Red State pols fear NRA more than they do large majority favoring background checks.
