The good stuff:
A Dean Baker takedown of Niall Ferguson.
Excellent substantive analysis of the farm bill fiasco from Jonathan Chait.
While Greg Sargent talks to Norm Ornstein about that fiasco.
Sarah Binder on the history of the Fed and the structure of the FOMC.
Ornstein, again, on contracting out government.
And I know I had this yesterday, but more detail from Reid Wilson:
Hotline Overlooked: Between 6/3, when Lautenberg died, and 6/22, when Feinstein turns 80, there are no octogenarians in the Senate. Last time the Senate was without an octogenarian: 1/3/81, when Sen. Milton Young retired, and 8/3/81, when John Stennis turned 80.
