Trumpet spit value

All those tabs with interesting stories are clogging up my browser!

It’s time to empty the spit valve — that is, to close some browser tabs with stories about which I’ve thought about writing.  Here’s some from the past few weeks:

Bad News for Obama: Democrats Have a Registration Problem.”

The New Wall Street Racket: Looting Your City, One Block at a Time”

Paul Krugman on How to Fix the Economy – and Why It’s Easier Than You Think”

“Right-Wing Lauds Facebook Co-Founder’s Decision To Renounce US Citizenship: He’s ‘An American Hero’

Zappala won’t charge officers in Jordan Miles case [A police brutality case from Pittsburgh]“

The Top Four GOP Responses To Obama’s Bain Attack”

About Greg Diamond

Worker's rights attorney now moving into "good governance" litigation. North Vice Chair of Democratic Party of Orange County and occasional candidate. Proud to be prolix. Unless otherwise specifically stated, his writings never speak for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Brea but generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and without compensation, although in 2014 he may receive some compensation for campaign consulting and fundraising for the campaign of Jorge Lopez for Orange County Assessor.
