Read Stuff, You Should

Happy Birthday to Omar Vizquel, 45.

How about some good stuff:

1. You would think that Jonathan Chait is exaggerating in this gotcha post about a conservative complaining about the NYT. You would be wrong.

2. I liked Conor Friedersdorf's takedown of Tom Friedman's last two columns more than I liked Dan Drezner's more pithy takedown of Tom Friedman's last two columns.

3. Sarah Kliff explained, before the trustees report came out about Medicare, what it would mean.

4. Controversy has flared up about whether Washington, DC should keep it's (severe? draconian? prudent?) limits on how tall its buildings can be. Lydia DePillis shares one proposal.

5. And Henry Farrell on what may be the beginnings of a revolution in academic publishing. Via DeLong.

  1. From all the complaints I've read, I've deduced that Elsevier is more skeevy than a government-funded homeopath and less skeevy than a government-funded piss-Christ.

    Not that Elsevier has any relation to either, but that it should elicit disgust somewhere between the two.
