Members of Congress look nothing like the American public. After examining the data, it's hard to rationalize how any of these members could be considered 'representatives'.

 Russell Brand's interesting perspective on modern rehabilitation: even after a decade of abstinence, Brand admits his condition persists, "Drugs and alcohol are not my problem, reality is my problem, drugs and alcohol are my solution."

Brainpicker's "7 Things I Learned in 7 Years of Reading, Writing & Learning" -- particularly liked #1: admit that you don't know.

"Allow yourself the uncomfortable luxury of changing your mind. Cultivate that capacity for “negative capability.” We live in a culture where one of the greatest social disgraces is not having an opinion, so we often form our “opinions” based on superficial impressions or the borrowed ideas of others, without investing the time and thought that cultivating true conviction necessitates. We then go around asserting these donned opinions and clinging to them as anchors to our own reality. It’s enormously disorienting to simply say, “I don’t know.” But it’s infinitely more rewarding to understand than to be right — even if that means changing your mind about a topic, an ideology, or, above all, yourself."

"The promise of the Internet has always been that it was gonna be this unprecedentedly potent instrument of liberation and democratization. That it would empower people to band together to work against oppression. That it would let you explore things and meet people who you wouldn't otherwise get to know in completely free and unconstrained ways. And what has happened instead is that we face the threat that it's the exact opposite -- that instead the Internet could become the most potent and odious tool of human control and oppression in human history."

- Glenn Greenwald talking with Esquire's Tom Junod
