I’ve had the pleasure of talking at length with w/Ezra Klein, the Washington Post columnist/blogger, Derek Thompson at The Atlantic and Catherine Rampell and David Leonhardt at NYT (the latter now DC bureau chief, in fact), who are the vanguard of a crowd of smart young journalists. Each time, I found the conversation fascinating and came away much-impressed.
This evening, Ezra posted a handy guide to the debt ceiling on his W Post blog – Mr. Klein explains it for you
And he just a little while ago tweeted that, after Obama’s speech, where he called on Americans to contact their Senators and Representatives, the Congressional servers crashed.
I’ll check on what Derek, Catherine, and David are saying, as well and get back to you.
