NEW! Weekly Update by Wally: 
Slow Week Ends Lower on Fed Fears
Markets ended a slow trading week in the red, posting the biggest weekly decline since June. Stocks were pushed down by low volume and investor concerns about when the Federal Reserve will wind down its stimulus program.

Guest Column: Rhetorical Federalism: Governing Institutions, Planning, Public Investment and the Perils of Health-Care Federalism: Is it a matter of finding a top-down pattern or a bottom-up approach to American federalism?  In other words, should changes occur from the top down with the national government establishing policies that determine the scope and content of health care coverage for the entire U.S. population?

My Epic Beauty Fails

One day as I was looking around a high-end cosmetics store for a new lipstick, a “beauty expert” approached me and said that I was so stunning I should forget the lipstick, and get a lip plumper instead.
