Stories you shouldn’t miss:
1. That Osama bin Laden/long-form birth certificate thing is workin’ for President Obama. According to the latest Associated Press poll, his job approval rating has soared to 60 percent, up from 43 percent in a Gallup poll in late April. It’s also been a very bad past few weeks for onetime Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. Since Obama released his long-form birth certificate, and then pawned Trump at the White House correspondent’s dinner, the reality TV star’s poll numbers have nosedived. Mr. Comb-Over went from first place to fifth and now is only favored by 8 percent of Republicans — tied with libertarian wing-nut Ron Paul.
2. California State University, once a place where middle- and low-income students could go for a decent education, is rapidly turning into just another college system for the well-to-do. According to the Chron, CSU is looking at raising fees by another 32 percent thanks to Republicans’ refusal to put tax measures on the ballot. Tuition could jump to $6,450 next spring.
