Plains Pops:Totally Random Updates Edition

Romney has released his education plan.  At first blush, it's indistinguishable from Obama's and Bush's. In related news,  Hollywood is apparently ready to give Rocky treatment to charter schools.

Jeff Barth reacts to comments about his video: “I don't care if you don't like [the video]. I don't care if you don't like me. I think it's kind of fun.”  The Dakota War College praises Barth's sincerity.  I still doubt that ironic hipster deconstructionists (IHDs) constitute a major South Dakota voting block.  Heck, I'm unconvinced there's enough of them to fill all of the tables at a Starbucks.


As further proof that Hell is experiencing a cold front, the aforementioned Dakota War College expresses unease at Governor Eddie Haskell's Dennis Daugaard's endorsements in South Dakota's Republican primaries. More importantly, the Madville Times points to Republican legislative candidates running against Daugaard's destructive education measure, HB 1234.

Finally, here's another reading trifecta.  Reporter and blogger Bob Mercer recommends Watergate: A Novel. NPR Books points to 15 summer reads recommended by Indie booksellers, and IO9 takes science fiction fans back to the  1960s.
