Call your congressperson

Especially if he or she is on this list, and tell them to vote no on Stupak.

We may have to lower the cost of med school

At least, that's the conclusion I draw from this article by Ezra, which shows that we pay American doctors way too fucking much. I knew that already, but as Ezra says, you don't usually see prices written down during the health-care debate. And now that I have...well, damn.

And I'm humble as hell, too

I flatter myself that I'd laugh as heartily at this story if it were a United player saying it, and lord knows Drogba's earned some bragging rights so far this season, but oh my:
