A beautiful Labor Day Monday in NYC.
John Grisham, lawyer-former Mississippi state legislator-novelist, is donating money to help his state.
Slate’s Jack Shafer did a nice job of making his list of complaints about the tv journalists’ coverage. I’d agree with a huge chunk of them (although, I have nothing to say about the FOX News coverage, since I don’t have FOX News and I otherwise avoid local FOX’s coverage as much as I can).
The sudden news of John Roberts’ appointment as Chief Justice. MSNBC posted the Associated Press article on this story. I’m withholding judgment on this; all I can say is that I’m surprised by the sudden development, or at least, surprised that the rumors of the president’s picking Roberts came true. One wonders what on earth is next.
Enjoy what’s left of this long weekend…
