–Family-Practice physician can’t sell his practice – the saddest part of this article was, in my opinion: “He [the physician] cannot bring himself to join a large group practice or work for a hospital because he opposes their growing use of nurse practitioners for primary care.” I may have more to say about this later.
-I don’t like the ‘class warfare’ tone of this article, but the claims it makes are thought-provoking and merit discussion. It seems to me that most who discuss taxes willfully ignore the majority of the facts and are especially prone to motivated skepticism.
-Speaking of taxes: want to know where your (federal) taxes went last year? This information is unambiguously important to know for taxpayers, and something like the Third Way’s Tax Receipt could be extremely beneficial.
–This high-school girl is really brave.
-Time doesn’t really slow down in crises, but this article on the neuroscientist investigating how time ‘works’ is fascinating.
-I don’t know anything of the nuances surrounding what’s been happening in Egypt, Libya, and other countries lately. Fortunately, my friend Anna does, and is passionate enough to voluntarily head to the region to report on it. Follow her on Twitter or catch up by reading her Huffington Post interview.
