Today’s edition of quick hits:

* Tragedy in France: “Three children and a rabbi were shot dead by a gunman at a Jewish school in Toulouse, France, on Monday, and President Nicolas Sarkozy said the bullets from one of the two guns used match those in earlier attacks that killed three French soldiers.”

* Gaming out a confrontation: “A classified war game held this month to assess the American military’s capabilities to respond to an Israeli attack on Iran forecast that the strike would lead to a wider regional war, which could draw in the United States and leave hundreds of Americans dead, according to American officials.”

* Poor South Carolina: “South Carolina is among the states most ripe for corruption because of government secrecy, weak ethics enforcement, little disclosure of legislators’ finances and low accountability for legislative and executive branch members, according to a nationwide analysis to be released today.”

* Quite a career: “Brian Lamb, who helped found the public-affairs cable network C-SPAN in 1978 and has been its CEO ever since, will step down at the end of the month, C-SPAN said Sunday.”

* The guy behind the “Don’t Renig in 2012” bumper sticker doesn’t want to be perceived as a racist. Oh my.

* I still struggle to understand how Erick Erickson’s mind works.

* Interesting move in Utah: “Utah Gov. Gary Herbert late Friday vetoed the controversial sex education bill, turning back the legislative effort to eliminate classroom discussion tied to contraceptives, intercourse and homosexuality.”

* “Blitzkrieg” references are apparently offensive to the right, unless Republicans are making them.

* And as part of my ongoing fascinating with Fox News’ graphics department, Shauna Theel flags this gem on gas taxes. Note: Fox counts state taxes twice; the tax figures are actually wrong; and the percentage scale isn’t even close to being accurate.

Anything to add? Consider this an open thread.
