Western states created some news over the weekend, with Bernie Sanders – or should we now call him BIRDIE Sanders – picking up strong caucus wins in Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii. Another plus for the west? California has now decided to make their minimum wage $15 an hour.

Meanwhile, Republicans were still setting fire to each other metaphorically, as Mexicans literally lit an effigy of Donald Trump to celebrate the burning of evil spirits at Easter. As Sec.
