Reading roundup: Colts land Frank Gore, Rolling Stones rumor, Rep. Justin Moed

Three days until spring break! Good thing too. I’m groaning under the load of all these papers and projects I’m trying feverishly to get done. I need a break!

Here’s 10 or so more good reads I’ve somehow found time to round up this morning:

  • Are the Rolling Stones going to announce a July 4 concert at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway? Blogger Steve Spohn’s post about their upcoming “Sticky Fingers” tour has led to feverish speculation on Twitter. (
