The Audacity of Patience.

Nate Silver out-wonks me.

The St. Petersburg Times takes on Scientology.

Nick Kristof takes on the AMA.

CBO takes on the long-term budget outlook. (The long-term budget outlook is, I fear, winning.)

Michael Jackson's "Bad" was the first album I ever cared about. I used to hear it coming from my older brother's room. Here's to you, Mike:

Ezra, I have one question about cap and trade. After reading Matt Taibbi's latest article about how Goldman has set themselves up to make a huge profit from cap and trade I would like to know who is going to profit from this? And can we somehow set it up so that the American tax payer gets the profit from this and not Goldman Sachs?

i have been very sad to hear that michael jackson passed away.
he was so brilliantly talented and prolific.
today,many of his songs are being played on the radio stations, but for years, his music seemed to be blacklisted, while the media continually made a mockery of his life.
i think in these past years, he didnt receive the acclaim he deserved for his immense talents as a composer, arranger, singer and dancer.
his personal life seemed to overshadow his accomplishments.
it is unfortunate that he didnt live long enough to receive more recognition and appreciation for his musical legacy.
this is a happy, but not too well known song on one of his albums, and i always liked it so well. hope the link works....

i hope he rests in peace. (maybe he wont want to). his life seemed anything but peaceful.
this is a favorite quote from nietzche, and it reminds me of michael jackson....
"to give birth to a dancing star, one must have chaos within."

Nate Silver is wrong. The CBO numbers is the total increase in cost to individuals. the $175 includes gasoline, higher prices of goods, etc.

It is not the increase in energy bills. The increase in energy bills would be only a fraction of the $175.
