Some tidbits from around the web:

1. Very sharp look from Matt Yglesias on the strategy of the coming tax debates. Often the operational tactics are more important than “messaging.” Democrats can be surprisingly thick on this point.

2. What’s it like to get shot in the head? (ht Tyler Cowen)

3. Is regulatory sclerosis impeding innovation?

4. Is China a kleptocracy?

5. ICYMI, check out our review of Chris Hayes’ excellent new book.

6. Daniel Luzer looks at the new panicky reports on students who use amphetamine for studying.

Back in a flash. Did I miss anything?
