Dan Munro: 2012 was another year for scary health care charts…

The Incidental Economist: …though the scariest may not be so scary after all.

Satirical Political Report: In 2013, Hegel might become Defense Secretary in the phenomenal world as it appears to us, but not in the noumenal world as it is in reality.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day: “I think some of our members may have thought the default issue was a hostage you might take a chance at shooting. Most of us didn't think that. What we did learn is this -- it's a hostage that's worth ransoming.” (Mitch McConnell, August 3, 2011)
