I didn’t make a big deal of it last week, but I was out of commission from about Wednesday on. I caught something going around (which I lovingly referred to as Bacon Flu), and it knocked me on my ass. I’m doing much better now, but I’m starting to wonder if there’s not an allergy component mixed in. A couple of residual symptoms are steering me towards that conclusion.
Anyway, three things I want to bring to your attention this morning. First off, take a look at the comments exchange in my previous post. It will shed a little light on the debate over the public option if you’re curious. Second, Kristof’s opinion piece from yesterday is a must read. And third, this write just popped up online regarding the battle we’re fighting against bad ads. National Journal:
Still, the frustration of liberal groups over misleading messages — and the media’s role in disseminating them — is palpable. “Part of the problem within this debate has been the mass spread of disinformation,” said Jacki Schechner, communications director of Health Care for America Now. “And part of the reason for this is that these ads are not being pulled from the air. It’s quite extraordinary what they can get away with.”
I’ll have more for you a little later, but for now… Happy Monday.
