The Bush Tax Plan vs. the Obama Tax Plan

An expressive chart from Ezra Kline:

A note from the Full Circle Theater light booth.

As you can see, I have put very little on the blog today as I am over at the last day of Kids Camp at Full Circle Theater (where I ran the Tech workshop) and I made the mistake of volunteering my MacBook to run the sound system. The campers are getting ready to open “The Emperors New Clothes” tonite, but right now they are having pizza in the rehearsal room and I have a chance to check in on my laptop. I’ll get back to Under The LobsterScope tonite after 9:00 when I get home.

This show has about two dozen kids aged 6 through 14 or so, and it has been two weeks of utter madness… but I think we’ll be making it ok… and the audience will be all parents and friends, so there isn’t much that can go wrong. Family always likes everything.

Rehearsal shot I took last week.

Hope everyone has a nice evening… I’m going back to my position in the audience.

I’d like to see Chris Dodd get out of the way…

Elizabeth Warren is not only right for the job, she is needed by this country.
Here’s a clip from the HuffPo… you probably want to go in and read the whole thing:

Despite the outpouring of support for bailout watchdog Elizabeth Warren’s candidacy to lead a new consumer protection agency, one prominent Democrat continues to publicly stand in her way: Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd.
The Connecticut Democrat, who has lambasted lenders for taking advantage of cash-strapped borrowers and bank regulators for their poor record in protecting consumers, led the effort to get the recently-enacted financial reform law through Congress. The agency it calls for — a unit specifically charged with protecting borrowers from predatory lenders — survived attacks by the financial services industry and Republicans. It’s now hailed as one of the Obama administration’s top achievements.
Dodd has said that there are questions about whether the Senate would confirm her. Warren would have to garner 60 votes to end a filibuster before the Senate could give her nomination an up-or-down vote.
