Today, Suzy looked at scam artists exploiting fears about health-care reform, and at the role states will play in health-care reform. Mike responded to Paul Krugman's column on financial reform and looked at the views of Kansas City Fed Chief Tom Hoenig. And I criticized Chuck Lane's Civil War analogy and questioned whether an "expert consensus" matters on the constitutionality of the individual mandate. Here's what we didn't get to:

1) Diane Ravitch proposes an education reform agenda that goes beyond "accountability" and "choice."

2) Richard Kahlenberg looks at Obama's decision to side against race-neutral affirmative action in the American Prospect.

3) Are women leaving engineering because of their male co-workers?

4) Kal Penn is leaving the White House to make a Christmas-themed Harold & Kumar movie.

5) Jennifer Cohen of the New America Foundation puts together a March Madness bracket based on states' results in the "Race to the Top" education competition.

6) Felix Salmon looks closely at Timothy Geithner's arguments for not writing down leverage requirements.

surely they could make "Harold and Kumar go to the White House" and Penn could keep his job. It's a pity (for more important reasons that this, of course) that Anne Bancroft passed away a few years ago -- she could have played Mrs Robinson, the grandmother living in the White House!
