Things to Know - 12 April

1.  On the day that Romney became the free and clear (from Santorum) presumptive nominee, who should stick his neck back into public view?......George W.

7.  Mitt Romney is now finding out the box that he got himself into when he pandered to conservative desires.   His recorded statements on a woman's right, his support for right-wing-nut jobs in office, and the actions of the general leadership of the GeeOpee.  Mr. Etch-a-Skeptical is in a real bind:

8.  This story will make you want to convert to becoming a Vegan from your own backyard garden, and nothing more:
