Happy Birthday to Jackie Swanson, 49.
Time for the good stuff:
1. Solid post by Andrew Rudalevige on Obama and executive powers, agreeing in part and dissenting in part from a Ross Douthat post.
2. An ACA FAQ, from Kaiser's Mary Agnes Carey. Useful. More: Sarah Kliff has a good post setting out the issues and what might happen, and Jonathan Cohn reminds everyone of the big picture.
3. Nate Silver talks house effects.
4. And Andrew Sullivan on writing like a blogger. I like the typical blog style...as for my own writing, I know that I'm better when I take a bit more time, but there are certainly trade-offs involved, and overall I'm probably where I want to be on that -- but I do wish I could cut down on typos and such.
