Today, I posted a bunch of graphs tallying the economy's performance since Obama's election, fact-checked the claim that the Affordable Care Act would require 16,000 new IRS agents, and rambled about the problem of financial-sector complexity.

Here's what I didn't get to:

1) What happens when a wine critic breaks his nose?

2) The tough politics of House progressives.

3) "The basic picture of the federal government you should have in mind is that it’s essentially a huge insurance company with an army."

4) Alan Greenspan says that no one could have known what was happening in the housing market, but what about the people who tried to tell him about it?

Recipe of the day: Strawberry shortcake sliders.

Something for real foodies: The 'Man-bait' - a Maple Bacon Lollipop: "Bacon lovers unite-finally, you can have your dessert that also con[t]ains your favorite food group - Bacon! This maple and bacon lolli is a fiercely delicious combination of real smoky bacon bits and delicious maple syrup giving all at once savory and sweet sensation. Mmm - Bacon!"

Maple and bacon lolli-lovers unite!

That House progressives article is profoundly sad. While people were focusing on having a bill at all, whipping a few people in both houses could have gotten some kind of public option through.
