Round-Up: Tuesday, Mar. 23, 2010

Read: Why it Isn't Unethical for the Dems to Pass the Reportedly Unpopular Health Care Bill

News: Red light cameras appear to be costing LA more money than they bring in.

Read about Health Care Reform:
1. Economist has a good basic summary (as they always do)
2. UCLA Professor Andy Sabl has a very interesting look at the grassroots effort behind it
3. A more in-depth look by the Economist America blog at what the bill does (with a focus on redistribution of care)
4. Two cool pictures telling the story of the debate.

Nutrition: A new study about how high-fructose corn syrup is worse for you than regular sugar.

Listen: Hipster Tracks: See what hipsters are currently listening to. You can also stream the new MGMT album on their site.

Consider: Do you think the media has a bias towards the status-quo? I never thought about it until I saw Mark Kleiman write about it, but I think it rings true.

Eat: 10,000 Pound Rice Krispy Treat

Laugh: An RA's Brain, Too Hot and Two Cold genius, and a story about a rectum wanting to be in charge.

Watch: This futuristic device would be awesome.

Watch: Beastie Boys vs. Battlestar Galactica Mashup
