Everybody loves you:

— A real cost-benefit analysis of HSR.

— Eric Holder had no choice.

— Given that we know how these things go, it seems to me that Mary Landrieu deciding to hold a health care town hall probably means that she’s looking for some constituent pressure to help rationalize a “no” vote on reform.

— Leon Wieseltier hates the internet.

— IT departments should unlock people’s browsers.

— I always love Ta-Nehisi Coates’ posts on discovering white culture.

Song of the day: Rat Silo, “Everybody Loves Paul Wong” an interesting lyrical pastiche brought to my attention by the excellent CBC Radio 3 podcast.
