I like the "tab dump" idea that Ezra Klein and Matt Yglesias use, so I'll offer three things here I highly recommend without much comment. Might try to do it Fridays; we'll see. BTW, don't waste your time on Joel Klein's big piece this week (Klein appears to have recently concluded that many conservatives say crazy things, which is all well and fine, but the rest of the article is a mess). Back to business: we're focusing on the good here.
1. Greg Koger's series on filibusters at the Monkey Cage, recommended for anyone who wants to understand what's happening with the health care bills, or legislation in general.
2. Conor Friedersdorf on careers for conservatives, recommended for young conservatives thinking about career options and for anyone older who talks to young people about career choices.
3. Ta-Nehisi Coates's Virginia trip, recommended for Americans and those who are interested in the United States (you do all read TNC regularly, right? But if you just didn't want to dive in to this multiple part series, it's well worth it; link is to first part of four).
