Happy Birthday to Mark Allen Shepherd, 52.
And on to the good stuff:
1. Really nice 5 Myths column from Tom Mann and Norm Ornstein about the Ignominious 112th. Also, from earlier last week, a nice one from Ezra Klein on the 112th.
2. Speaker elections scholar Jeffrey Jenkins on Nancy Pelosi, trend-setter.
3. Ashley Parker on what's up with Paul Ryan.
4. The House has a new history site.
5. And is steroids nonsense really just another example of the evils of baby boomers? I don't know, but Scott Lemieux makes the case.
