If you like this nerdy stuff, read this 538 post about non-strategic retirements and cycles.
Read: If you want something less wonky, I recommend reading this short argument in favor of universal health care coverage.

Personal: I had a great weekend of food. LA street food festival (LudoBites Fried Chicken = best chicken of my life, great indian food), finally got coffee at LaMill, cooked spaghetti with roasted cauliflower and bacon-panko-breadcrumbs (I hate cooking bacon, might stop making recipes that use bacon) & a fun salad, had one of the best burgers of my life at Comma Ca (good fries and Chocolate Pot de Creme, and $4.50 specialty President's Day cocktails), and cooked a nice homemade breakfast.
