— Don’t listen to me on the public plan, listen to Paul Starr; he won a pulitzer prize for his health care work.

— Afghan elections won’t solve anything though I think that analysis downplays the extent to which an Abdullah Abdullah win would make everything much worse.

— Singapore’s health care system is beloved by wonks of many stripes but in the real world it seems to take a dictatorship to impose such a plan.

— Wall Street Journal conjures up $5 trillion in new debt through bad accounting.

— Stimulus spending data now available in terrifying detail.

Today I discovered that I have five different copies of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Modern Romance”.
