Sorry about the lack of a post today. One real-life thing led to another and I never got the chance.
Obviously, the big story is the Arizona decision. I heard a bit of Laura Ingraham and a bit of Rush in the car and my impression is that it's a mixed bag. What's the deal with Chief Justice Roberts? Any comments on that?
I'm nervous about Thursday's Obamacare decision.
In other news, three cheers for Durham, New Hampshire, home of my alma mater, UNH, and the town where I met my future husband (a grad student), converted to Catholicism, got married, and had our first two babies, beautiful daughters #1 and #2.
Here's Hamilton Smith Hall, home of the UNH English department:
But I digress. Jim Geraghty:
I believe the Manchester Union Leader once called Durham, a typically liberal college town, "the cesspool of New Hampshire." I think that's a bit of an exaggeration. It's actually a pretty little town, and the current powers-that-be don't seem to be the swooning kind. Live free or die and all that.Today President Obama holds a campaign event in Durham, New Hampshire. The cost to the town in police and fire overtime expenses are estimated to be $20,000 to $30,000. There are 10,345 residents in Durham, according to the last census, meaning the cost for this one event would be roughly $2-$3 per person.Durham lawmakers, including town-council chairman Jay Gooze (a Democrat), asked the Obama campaign to cover some of those costs; the campaign declined, contending that as a private organization they do not participate in security or traffic-control planning. They referred the inquiry to the Secret Service.
