Russ Feingold On The Daily Show

I don't know what time The Daily Show airs in other times zones, but there is still time for Left Coasters to catch the only Democratic Presidential contender from the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party.

For a preview of coming attractions, skim Steve Lopez's column in today's L.A. Times, What the Homeless Need First: Homes.

I'm going to be putting together a series of diaries on my recent experience with homelessness in Orange County California. It appears that Orange County has succeeded from the union and is no longer subject to California law.
