Happy Sunday! Still battling this damn cold, but I made it to farmers' market this morning. Wonderful heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil. Looking forward to a great caprese this afternoon.

Honestly, I'm kind of screwed as my fellow "reporters"--in quotes are on purpose are taking deserved time off along with the Legislature. Thus, very little news.

MONEY MATTERS: Sarah B. Wire and Christine Mai-Duc look at fundraising among GOP incumbents, and it's not looking good for some

#CAKEDAY: Happy birthday to Joe Barr and Councilmember David Ryu!

#FAREWELL: Former Senate Republican Leader Dave Cogdill passed away from pancreatic cancer this morning. 

DEPT OF CORRECTIONS: Duh, the opposition to the twin tunnels is because it would raise, not lower, the salinity in the Delta. Brain and fingers weren't connected yesterday.
