Now avail­able: a new me­mo­rial Tshirt for con­ser­va­tive pub­lisher and provo­ca­teur An­drew Bre­it­bart, who died sud­denly on Thurs­day. The “Bre­it­bart is Here” T-shirt fea­tures his im­age and an ad­di­tional wish: “Keep An­drew’s spirit alive and help sup­port his fam­ily.” Man­u­fac­turer An­them Stu­dios pro­vides an as­sur­ance that all prof­its will go to Mr. Bre­it­bart’s sur­vivors.

The cot­ton shirt, for men or ladies, is $20. See de­tails here: http://an­them­stu­dios.net. The de­signer is an il­lus­tra­tor named Big Fur Hat. “I smell a prairie fire. Some big­gies have emailed and are of the opin­ion that Bre­it­bart, in death, has more im­pact than most in life,” Mr. Hat ob­serves at his web­site (http://iown­the­world.com). Cam­paign Com­mit­tee, Flush Rush Now. (Among in­ter­est groups or other or­ga­ni­za­tions urg­ing the public to “con­demn Rush Lim­baugh” for the ra­dio host’s re­cent un­to­ward re­marks about Ms. Fluke fol­low­ing her tes­ti­mony be­fore Congress, for which he has apol­o­gized.) with 35 per­cent, fol­lowed by Mr. Rom­ney with 31 per­cent, Mr. Gin­grich with 20 per­cent, and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas with 9 per­cent, says an Amer­i­can Re­search Group poll.

Paddy Power, which faith­fully of­fers odds on Amer­i­can pol­i­tics, says Mr. Rom­ney is the fa­vorite to win in Virginia, Ohio, Ver­mont and Mas­sachusetts. Mr. San­to­rum will cap­ture Ten­nessee and Ok­la­homa, and Mr. Gin­grich will win Ge­or­gia, pre­dicts the Ir­ish group, which is of­fer­ing 10/11 odds that Mr. Rom­ney col­lects more than 5.5 states.

“We can’t write off the rest of the can­di­dates just yet. But the odds do sug­gest that it could be an amaz­ing Tues­day for Rom­ney,” the bet­ting con­cern notes. United King­dom, Ja­pan, Ger­many and France — will all have a lower rate. Cap­i­tal and jobs will con­tinue to flow over­seas, Mr. Karch warns.

Pres­i­dent Obama last month pro­posed a plan to raise net taxes, but in the process lower the U.S. cor­po­rate rate to about 32 per­cent. That sim­ply isn’t worth it,” he adds. Kather­ine Howe, an au­thor who teaches Amer­i­can stud­ies at Cor­nell Univer­sity, who de­clares there’s a link be­tween the Ti­tanic and, uh, Oc­cupy Wall Street.

“One of the rea­sons we’re still so ob­sessed with the Ti­tanic is be­cause of the ridicu­lous con­cen­tra­tion of wealth that it car­ried. De­tails would in­clude Mrs. Eleanor Wi­dener’s mil­lion­pearls, John Ja­cob As­tor IV, the rich­est man in the world in 1912, who died on Ti­tanic. A first­class cabin ticket cost the equiv­a­lent of $90,000 in con­tem­po­rary dol­lars,” she ob­serves.

“There is a lot to be said about the rel­a­tively low mor­tal­ity for first­class pas­sen­gers, ver­sus the high mor­tal­ity for third class, and the very, very high mor­tal­ity for the crew. The Ti­tanic was a po­tent sym­bol even be­fore it went down,” Mrs. Howe con­cludes.
