Recap: We've changed the filibuster many times before; Bill Daley would be a very odd choice for chief of staff; and the value of incumbency appears to be declining.


1) A 10-year-old discovered a supernova.

2) Can redistribution accelerate growth?

3) This seems like a pretty narrow definition of what makes for a good beer.

4) I think, for instance, it would exclude this beer, which I had recently, and found to be very, very good.

5) I'll be talking filibuster today on Rachel Maddow's show (which is being guest-hosted by Chris Hayes).

Recipe of the Day: Brisket ragu.

--*This seems like a pretty narrow definition of what makes for a good beer.*--

It's not a definition, it's an opinion, and I daresay that I agree with it.

One of the challenges in brewing beer is to get the yeast to consume all the sugar, else one winds up with soda pop, which too many craft ales are.

And, to me, hops are like cilantro (in food), anything more than a very minimal amount is too much, and in some things, any is too much. That said, a hopped ale without peer is Bass, best enjoyed unrefrigerated, out of a large glass.

" ... hops are like cilantro (in food), anything more than a very minimal amount is too much ..."

Ah yes, and the Patriots are better than the Celtics ...

A particularly useless argument, all the way around.

--*A particularly useless argument*--

Klein referred to an opinion as a "definition". You call another opinion an "argument".

That was a pretty awful post on beer. My day is much worse for having read it.
