Well, I suspect that the economy is the place to start here, but I have no idea what to make of this past. Was the news that the stock market wound up calming itself? That there was a lot of panic that will wind up pushing everyone over the edge into recession? That some of the new data wasn't all that bad? The real story is somewhere in there, right?
I have no idea whether the UK riots mattered or not.
I do think that the Wisconsin recalls were significant; it's easy to overstate their importance, but that's not to say they weren't important at all.
What else...Libya, Syria, Egypt. The new mileage regulations on trucks. I suppose I should mention the 11th Circuit decision on ACA, although I'm not really sure it makes much of a difference (the case would have probably gone to the Supremes anyway, and they can do what they want regardless of how the cases so far have narrowed the scope of what appears to be at issue). Meanwhile, implementing ACA rolls on.
Rick Perry is in. Tim Pawlenty? Ask me after the Straw Poll later today; he's the one with a lot at stake. Nothing else much happened on the campaign trail.
That's what I have. What did I miss or get wrong? What do you think mattered this week?
