Happy Birthday to John Flansburgh, 53.
Here's a little of the good stuff:
1. I sort of think that I should leave that Oregon study alone unless I'm willing to read it myself. Still, I'll link to Kevin Drum's latest try at what to make of the empirical findings.
2. And since I complain a lot about the post-policy GOP, I also should link to Ross Douthat's distillation of the emerging conservative position on health care.
3. And worth reading: John Harwood interviews David Axelrod.
