This and that to chew on: today’s New York Times reports on the recent decision by the University of Arkansas to drop down to one game per year in Little Rock, and the broader trend against home away from home games in college football; Ezra Klein has a great roundup of what the administration’s self-imposed Obamacare deadline tomorrow means; Americans are divided over the Iran nuclear deal; will the healthcare law’s contraceptive mandate survive a challenge in the Supreme Court?

Tell us what else is cooking. 

Oh, and some warm holiday wishes:
