Today, Suzy bemoaned the entire tone of the immigration debate, I interviewed Danielle Ewen on the federal policy map around early education and child care, and Justin looked at Ben Bernanke's speech in Wyoming.
1) Only letting all the Bush tax cuts expire will get us close to a solution to the debt crisis.
2) President Obama should be appointing and confirming more judges.
3) ProPublica's latest investigation of collateralized debt obligations.
4) No recipe, but John recommends this comprehensive (and graphic) guide to butchering chickens, which is either useful or a case for vegetarianism, depending on your inclination.
I was vague about this yesterday, but just to be clear, I'm still working for The Post part time on Wonkbook and may stop back in on the blog during the coming semester, but Research Desk is coming to an end because I have to go back to school. Papers to write, tests to take, poorly lit wood-paneled rooms to hang out in, etc. But thank you all for reading, and for helping Research Desk succeed. It's been a blast.
