Happy Birthday to Santiago Casilla, 32. I've always thought he was a good pitcher, although as with most of us I didn't always think he was Santiago Casilla (check out the b-r url, by the way). Currently a poster boy for the closer thing, but he's been a good pitcher for a long while, whichever inning he's tossed into.
On to the good stuff:
1. Spencer Ackerman studies Mitt Romney's foreign policy speech, and thinks he's found some substance in it. Interesting.
2. Excellent point by Seth Masket about politicians vs. experts. I fully agree with him, as regular readers might guess.
3. Dahlia Lithwick and Raymond Vasvari make the case against the case against disclosure. I don't think they really convinced me that it's an example of the same thing as the stuff in the first few paragraphs, but just ignore that and get to the disclosure argument.
