Your comments here. I have something to do. Tidbits:

* FRENCH FRACKED: France has banned fracking.


* ELECTIONS: The state Board of Election Commissioners will send some monitors to watch the House District 54 special election. A losing Democratic candidate has raised suspicions, but nothing near concrete proof, about undue influence on absentee ballots. But Republicans are stirring the issue because they love to suggest dirty deeds in the Delta and suppress voter turnout. Old trick. But let there be monitors. What’s to fear?
