THE NOONER for March 23, 2015x
Pretty quiet day on the political front, ergo my apologies!
POTUS TOO LATUS: Jerry Brown: I'd need a time machine to run for president [Chris Megariam @ LAT] - "Gov. Jerry Brown may not be running for president, but that doesn't mean it's not on his mind."
Speaking of the race to be POTUS, I happened to hear the speech by Ted Cruz this morning, in which he became the first candidate. Introducing his candidacy to students at Jerry Falwells's Liberty University, he apparently sought to out-right Pat Buchanan.
BLESS JOHN OLIVER: On last night's show he points out that running a stop sign in California is a fine of $35. But, with surcharges and other fees, it becomes $238. At minimum wage that's 32 hours. For a big-firm lawyer, it is one hour.
FRESH AND NOT-SO-EASY: Four Fresh & Easy stores closing in Orange County; 30 closing in SoCal and will likely be sold [Sarah Tuley and Nancy Luna @ OCR] - "Four Fresh & Easy grocery stores in Orange County are among 30 in Southern California scheduled to close, a spokesman for the chain told the Register. "
FOB-BOB: David Whiting: Is it time to change the 14th Amendment giving citizenship to those born here? - "[I]mmigration policy shouldn’t be based on those who can afford an expensive birth tourism trip any more than it should favor immigrants who happen to live in an adjacent country. Policy must be based on what’s fair and what makes sense. "
#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to Tim Capenter and Randy Perry! Belated birthday greetings to Anthony Cannella and Alex Padilla (yesterday) (h/t Bee).
FAREWELL: Senator Bill Campbell (1942-2015).
