We have Special Days, and after that Jason talks about some special posts his brother is posting celebrating The Smithsonian’s Jazz Appreciation Month. Our politics begins with talk abut Glenn Beck’s departure (we’re not exactly sad about it). The budget battle is next, and we take down the Republicans. Arthur says the underlying problem for Democrats is that they don’t challenge on the Republicans’ constant drumbeat about how awful government is—it isn’t and, in fact, does some things very well, indeed. Jason talks about the phony numbers from Representative Ryan. We go onto the philosophical agenda behind Ryan’s budget axe. Arthur has a double-dog dare for Ryan—which he’d too much of a coward to ever do.
Comments are next, and let us comment a bit further about the issues discussed. And finally, Arthur was out of sorts this week (week before was hella bad).
