Wow, Big Ed is really on fire about infrastructure today.

And Sherrod Brown is right: we have what we could very much call an infrastructure debt we are leaving our kids. And shouldn't this be a nonpartisan issue? Who wants to drive across a bridge and wonder if it's going to collapse??

1. I'm glad Ed is back on.

He reports on everyday stuff that affects everyday activities.

I just set to record his shows cuz I'm not always inside on Sat and Sun afternoon.

3. Infrastructure and healthcare...

Even the uber wealthy can't hide behind a gated community bubble when it comes to those two issues -- not unless they are literally never going to leave their homes.

They and their loved ones are put directly at risk by failing infrastructure and an unwell populace that lacks adequate healthcare (and our populace is less and less well due to lacking the basics of life - adequate food and shelter).

4. Another DUer put it best not long ago:

"Do you really want to be the last rich guy in a poor country?"
