So much going on at TED — just no time to write about.
So in the meantime:
THE MINNESOTA EXPERIMENT
“This Billionaire Governor Taxed the Rich and Increased the Minimum Wage — Now, His State’s Economy Is One of the Best in the Country.” Spread the word: middle-class economics works. And winds up enriching everybody! (Did the rich do better under Clinton, who raised taxes on the rich and the minimum wage, or Bush, who slashed taxes onthe rich and froze the minimum wage? Hint: the stock market soared tripled under Clinton, cratered under Bush. Obama, too, raised tax rates on the rich — yet the the stock market has again tripled.)

Quote of the Day
We've forgotten all the sacrifices that the people who've gone before us made to give us this wonderful life that we have. We accept it; we take it for granted; we think it's our birthright. The facts are, it's precious, it's fragile -- it can disappear.~Ross Perot, 1988
