Unfinished Thursday

Is there anything more tired than an April Fool's Day prank?

It appears Attorney General Kathleen Kane is in some serious trouble.  A grand jury decided there's enough evidence to prosecute on a few charges.  Kane's lawyer tried an end run in the state Spureme Court.  The court ruled a special prosecutor's appointment was legal and just.  It's now up to Montgomery County's district attorney to pull the trigger on filing charges.

Not a basketball fan.  Can't get excited in the Final Four.  Kentucky's win seems fait accompli.

What a mess in Indiana!  I'm not going to say if the Religious Freedom Restoration Act is a good law or not.  That's up to you.  However, Governor Mike Pence did a lousy job of defending it, starting Sunday morning on ABC's This Week.  Pence is always mentioned on the short list of Republican vice presidential candidates.  I doubt you'll hear his name in 2016, unless he gets this fixed and comes off as a true consensus builder and fence mender.

McDonald's, trying to reverse weak sales, is testing ways to do breakfast around the clock.  Being an all nighter, and as I have noted in this space before, I'd rather nave a Big Mac at 5 AM than an Egg McMuffin at 5 PM.
