1) "Americans confront a grim new reality: Our corporations don't need us anymore. Half their revenues come from abroad. Their products, increasingly, come from abroad as well."
2) A profile of urban economist Ed Glaeser.
3) Paul Waldman remembers the Gadflyer, the first outlet that ever paid me to write anything.
4) Paul Ryan is spending down the credibility he got with the "road map" pretty fast.
Recipe of the day: Romesco sauce improves pretty much everything.
