Young Ezra's money quote on cost savings under so-called "public option" plans: "All these are speculative"

But read on for an even better quote:

Belated thanks to BooMan for this love note on single payer

Sorry to take so long to get around to this:

The only honest people in this whole dispute are the single-payer hardliners on the left and the open opponents of any bill on the right. Neither of them want to see whatever weak-assed health care bill emerges out of the Senate's bowels become law. They have different reasons for this, but at least they're not full of crap.

Goodnight, moon

ZOMG, two days of sun in a row! And tomorrow it's going to be sunny!

Maybe I'll have tomatoes before, like, October...

Other good news is that I haven't seen the chipmunk since I lavished his home and office areas with Critter Ridder. Of course, that doesn't mean that the chipmunk isn't still around...
