Tab dump

1) Bob Kuttner recounts his back-and-forth with Obama.

2) Explaining the persistence of poverty.

3) DC's panda is getting sent back to China. Pretty clear evidence that obama's recent trip was a failure, no?

4) Good post by Dylan Matthews on the systemic bias towards pro-war opinions.

Recipe of the day: Everyone likes biscuits, right?

The Senate wanted to wish you a good weekend, but McConnell wouldn't grant unanimous consent for the motion. Sorry.

Biscuits at KFC are more expensive than biscuits at Biscuitville (5.29/doz vs. 2.99/doz). Biscuitville offers 3 dozen for 6.99 (2.33/doz).

If you needed to send 3 dozen biscuits to Lady Gaga, at these prices, is it more effective to purchase or manufacture biscuits according to the recipe?

There's a really interesting article about proposed Medicare cuts to home health care services in the New York Times. Intuitively it seems like making home health care services bear a disproportionate fraction of the overall Medicare cuts seems counterproductive as these services keep people, especially the elderly, out of the hospital. Think you can look into that to satisfy one of your ardent readers?

reader44, I didn't get to that piece but it runs counter to an amendment Dems are proposing to help people stay in their homes and out of assisted lving facilities longer.

Also there's a new petition for it relative to the Senate Black Caucus: http://www.1payer.net/faxapp/senders/add/cid:47

And some CBO numbers (they already scored it a long time ago): http://www.pnhp.org/facts/single_payer_system_cost.php?page=all
