Since I’ve about had it with the various right-wing hijinks that constitute a high percentage of the political “news” today, maybe you have as well, so here are some other interesting items elsewhere on the Washington Monthly site.

* At Ten Miles Square, Harold Pollack provides his own ruminations on the imaginary war on white people.

* Also at Ten Miles Square, Larry Bartels examines data on the political preferences of the very rich; suffice it to say that the conservative stereotype of the rich and poor supporting Democrats against the Republican middle class are totally wrong.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer reports the latest on the congressional gridlock on student loan interest rates.

*And also at College Guide, Daniel evaluates the financial dependence of the California higher education system on out-of-state students.

Read and learn.
