Other interesting stories in The Washington Post:


Halsey Minor in happier times. (AP)
Halsey Minor was a Southern aristocrat out of Charlottesville, Va., who made hundreds of millions in the tech boom — only to squander it all. And now it seems that he’s taking a piece of Colonial Williamsburg down with him: Carter’s Grove, the invaluably historic James River plantation he bought in 2007, is quickly decaying as he fails to pay the bills. A compelling magazine story by Elizabeth Lesly Stevens, who really should write a book.

In other news: Clarence Thomas shunned Yale law school for decades, but now he’s slowly making peace with his alma mater, reports our colleague Robert Barnes.

“My precious Quinn, whom I love more than any of you could ever imagine, and I am so close to and am so, so grateful for — so grateful for Quinn.”

— John Edwards making a point to thank all of his children — including the one whose birth led to this mess — after his acquittal on one campaign finance violation charge and deadlock on others.
