Kind of a slow news day, but here’s what we’ve got:
- Amtrak driver says he cannot remember deadly crash — I find this quite credible. I don’t remember how I hit my head that night last summer. When even mild concussion is involved, amnesia is fairly common, I believe.
- Obama’s trade agenda clears a key hurdle in Senate — Looks like we MAY have a rational result out of all this.
- Jeb Bush Tries to End Storm on Iraq Remarks — Hey, I thought what he said initially was fine — but I would, right? Particularly since to me, Iraq wasn’t primarily about WMD. And he reflected my views when he criticized the way the aftermath of combat was totally botched. I found Jennifer Rubin’s “Nine ways to answer the Iraq question” interesting. I think Bush has tried something like four of them so far, and none are really working for him.
- Tom Brady lodges appeal against four-game Deflategate ban — Not because I’m interested, but because I told y’all I’d give you more sports.
