Just a quick FYI, Gov. Jerry Brown has early stage prostate cancer and is being treated with radiation:

(AP) — The 74-year-old Brown is receiving a short course of conventional radiotherapy for "localized prostate cancer," the statement said.

Brown's "prognosis is excellent, and there are not expected to be any significant side effects," University of California, San Francisco oncologist Eric Small said.

Wishing him a speedy recovery. He's got more than enough to handle here in California, so this was the last thing he needed.

A quick FYI regarding the Trayvon Martin case via Michael Muskal at the L.A. Times, where there's more:

George Zimmerman, charged with the second-degree murder of an unarmed black teenager, will continue to have 24-hour-a-day electronic monitoring, a Florida judge ruled Tuesday.

At a hearing in Sanford, Fla., Circuit Judge Debra Nelson rejected a defense request to modify the conditions of Zimmerman’s release. The defense had sought to have the full-time GPS monitoring discontinued and permission to allow Zimmerman to go outside the county.

FYI:

The Justice Department said Monday its poll watchers will be in Milwaukee to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and other federal voting rights laws.

The Voting Rights Act is all about discrimination based on race, color or membership in a minority language group. Under that law, Milwaukee must provide assistance to Spanish-speaking voters.
