Friday, March 28, 2014 12:21 a.m.

On Wednesday, the Senate Education Committee advanced a bill touted by its senatorial supporters as an “anti-Common Core bill.” That fact that it was light on “anti” and heavy on “Common Core” should surprise no one.

There’s been a lot of talk these days about The Weather Channel naming winter storms, a practice they began in 2012. Not everyone likes it. Some abhor it. In fact, the New York Times has snubbed TWC by not even recognizing the names in its storm coverage. The Associated Press says it only uses names issued by national weather authorities. But the …
