The Right Stuff takes a provisional holiday; back April 28

Tom Jackson The Right Stuff is, officially, taking a spring holiday (beginning with a whirlwind visit to London, which is why I’ve applied the British variation of “vacation”) through April 27.

No matter what, however, all-new episodes of TRS insights episodes are scheduled to resume April 28.

Rick Santorum expects a role at Tampa convention

Rick Santorum enlivened the presidential debates in Tampa and elsewhere before Mitt Romney rose to primacy; we might see him inject some excitement into the Republican National Convention, too - or so he tells CNN:

“Santorum confirmed that he has not been asked to speak at this August’s Republican National Convention, though he’s certain that invitation will come and he will play a major role. ‘I have no doubt that we’ll have some role at the convention. And as you they haven’t announced any speakers other than Chris Christie as the keynote. I will do my best to be helpful in the cause.’”
