Saturday night line

Let's make this the open line.

* GUNS IN BARS: Something tells me we haven't heard the last of this episode of guns drawn, including by off-duty cops if the notes are correct, in a bar in Fayetteville. It's getting Facebook attention, too.

* TWITTERVERSE: Sounds from various Twitter accounts as if several dozen people responded to legislators who offered to meet today on the pending vote on Medicaid expansion. At least one, Rep. Randy Alexander, was quoted as defending the pending proposal because he preferred the "private option." It will use private insurance rather than the existing Medicaid program to cover the Obamacare-provided expansion of the number of people covered by federal Medicaid funding.
