Love that "Alabama" came from the Choctaw word for "plant-clearers." And it's possible -- though not certain -- that "Iowa" means "sleepy ones." #maps

+Ezra Klein didn't utilize RSS to their max. He didn't find a way to make all his RSS feeds full-text, for example. He didn't use Reader to recommend other feeds to him, or to easily search RSS feeds for various topics (to make his "bubble" bigger).

Don't be fooled by the fact that it's Jeff Bezos buying the Washington Post rather than Amazon itself, says Lydia DePillis. Over time, the two will come together. #amazon

On Monday, simply by doing absolutely nothing, the 113th Congress allowed the interest rate on student loans to double, from 3.4 percent to 6.8 percent. That might be permissible if they were busy with more important things, like inventing a cure for cancer that’s also a source of endless clean energy. But they’re not even working this week.
