Happy Birthday to Kristin Hersh, 46. I'm not sure there's an album from the 00s that I liked better than 50 Foot Wave's Golden Ocean, and generally she's one of the people I listen to the most these days.
The good stuff:
1. Ed Kilgore on the myth of the Clintonite revolt.
2. Medicaid and doctors: Sarah Kliff reports on a new study and its implications for ACA implementation.
3. And have you been following Alyssa Rosenberg's return to The Wire? She's started the second season now. Worth it.
