2) "If you invest for 'the intellectual challenge' rather than to make lots of money, you’ll get what you wished for."

3) Josh Green responds on Mitch McConnell.

4) Social Security benefits are modest.

I love braised leeks! The tragedy (well... that's overdramatic) of it was I always thought their preparation would be rather involved, so I kept forestalling what turned out to be a remarkably easy dish. (My version omits the garlic and stock, just using thyme and shallots---it's a bit sweet and barely oniony, but really quite good.)
