Below are a few posts I’ve found particularly noteworthy this week. Check them out and enjoy — or don’t, AT YOUR PERIL.***
- Jon Green over at AmericaBlog discusses a recent Pew study on pollsters and likely voter models.
- Politico offers new insider analysis on the upcoming Iowa caucuses and other early state contests. (Spoiler alert: Huckabee and O’Malley totes have the edge!)
- RealClearPolitics with a real tearjearker piece on politicians and crying. (OK, it’s not actually a tearjerker, but I never can resist an opportunity to make a terrible pun.) Stay tuned for my take/response on this issue sometime next week.
- The New York Times on paid family leave. It’s an issue making bigger headlines in the U.S. of late, but the nation still struggles with the deeper root problem of a “culture of overwork.”
- In a post I’ve personally subtitled “Things I Have to Look Forward To,” Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva outlines the current challenge in her household — that of the daunting hairbrush.
- And finally, a hilarious post from Bad Sandy on something I TOTALLY WOULD DO — saying “I love you” to random strangers.
That’s it for this week. Happy reading! More to come next Friday.
