Difficult to stomach, but the author raises some fair points. Not sure what I believe right now, but I guess that's the role of good journalism: to throw you back on yourself.

Arguably, Less Than Jake's efforts to "keep the prices low / for records and our shows" contributes to disinflationary trends, thus weakening the macroeconomy. Under the circumstances, Johnny Quest is perfectly right.

Info about the bill is pretty limited, but this is a good discussion of ethics as regards the Supreme Court Justices.

I find this to be the best nerd highlight:

There was a very curious moment when Obama started talking about the debt ceiling. He said:

"Now, what makes today’s stalemate so dangerous is that it has been tied to something known as the debt ceiling – a term that most people outside of Washington have probably never heard of before."

Note the passive voice there. The stalemate “has been tied.” Who tied it? House Republicans got the ball rolling, to be sure, but the President abandoned any call for a clean raising of the debt limit a long time ago. Like the House Republicans, he has wanted to tie a long-term deficit reduction plan to the debt limit. He thinks it would be good for the country to “put our fiscal house in order.” He thinks it would show the value of compromise and prove to the world that America can get “big things” done. He seems to believe that it would somehow kick-start our economy to cut trillions of dollars in aggregate demand, by providing confidence to the business community to invest. So the stalemate has not “been tied.” Obama tied it.
