Your Morning Coffee

Strib: The flu is officially “widespread” around the state.

PiPress: Target reformulates its policy on contributions. Because it was designed-by-committee, it pleases no one.

Austin Daily Herald: Cows escape mass transit!

The Strib also reported that #6 Pawlenty finished ahead of #7 Bachmann in the CPAC straw poll of 15 possible GOP contenders. If this poll had any basis in reality, anti-immigrant pro-life isolationist Ron Paul would be chosen as the party’s Pied Piper. (Ron also won the straw poll in 2008 but was thwarted from securing the nomination that summer after getting lost, thinking the RNC was being held in Minneapolis at Target Center.)
