Happy Birthday to Gavin McLeod, 82.
Some good stuff:
1. Kevin Drum on outrages.
2. Worth reading: Ross Douthat on Rand Paul's foreign policy.
3. Joe White on sequestration and how we got here.
4. And Brad DeLong on Amity Shlaes and Calvin Coolidge. It's a good thing he stopped reading before he got to the point where she blames FDR for the Depression. Not for prolonging it. Just for the Depression.
