THE Nooner for July 23, 2016
Happy Saturday! I hope you're staying cool. We're looking at 104 at the Nooner Global Headquarters, 96 in LA-LA land, and 109 in Riverside. As I write at 7:30am, it's already 90 in Palm Springs on the way to 117 degrees.
San Francisco will be perfect at 71.
Hopefully you're enjoying this pause between conventions. I'm still digesting this week's show. I wonder how Speaker Paul Ryan feels about Donald Trump's assertion that he "alone" can fix Washington. The Founding Fathers put Congress as Article I for a reason.
If you missed Thursday night's Late Show with Stephen Colbert, it was a great episode, with Jon Stewart returning and Elizabeth Warren.
US SENATE: Rep. Loretta Sanchez implies Obama endorsed Senate rival because they are both black [Phil Willon and Jazmine Ulloa @ LAT] - "Orange County Rep. Loretta Sanchez said in an interview with a Spanish-language television station that she believes President Obama may have endorsed rival Kamala Harris in California’s U.S. Senate race because they are both black, injecting a dose of racial politics into a historic contest that in November will elect the state’s first African American or Latino senator."
Or, perhaps it's because Harris was Obama's California co-chair in 2008, while Sanchez endorsed Clinton?
POKE: State Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris: Stay safe while playing 'Pokemon Go' [Liam Dillon @ LAT] - "Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris is telling consumers they should Poke Stop and think before playing the wildly popular "Pokemon Go" game app."
I just caught two Pokemon on Tim Kaine's chest.
ONE MORE: Jerry Brown signs bill to restrict, register homemade guns [Alexei Koseff @ SacBee] - "Brown on Friday announced that he had signed without comment Assembly Bill 857, requiring anyone who manufactures or assembles a homemade firearm to first apply for a unique serial number or other marking from the state Department of Justice, which must then be affixed to the weapon. The measure, by Assemblyman Jim Cooper, D-Elk Grove, would also prohibit the sale or transfer of any self-assembled firearms."
GOVERNOR TORLAKSON: As California Democrats party in Philly, state’s head teacher poised to lead Golden State [Anshu Siripurapu @ SacBee] - "In a chain of events straight out of an episode of “The West Wing,” State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson is poised to take the helm as acting governor at some point in the next week when Gov. Jerry Brown and nearly all of his statutory replacements head out of state to their party’s convention in Philadelphia, which makes them constitutionally ineligible to serve as governor."
#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to CapPubRadio's Joe Barr and LA councilmember David Ryu!
