The Monday Morning Teaser

This week’s main article is the one I didn’t get finished in time for last week: A look at Paul Ryan’s sketch of a poverty plan. It’s interesting and in some ways creditable that Republicans are finally talking about these issues, but it’s hard to see how they’re going to do anything effective without removing their ideological blinders.

In the weekly summary, I’ll explain why everybody in New England is talking about two cousins battling for control of a grocery chain, what’s worrisome about those deep holes in Siberia, who’s really behind the impeachment talk, and what Congress did and didn’t get done before going away for August. Also: Senator Whitehouse’s global-warming speech, Rep. King’s theocratic musings, and the biggest reason to believe Congress intended health-insurance subsidies to apply to all the exchanges. And in closing, a Portuguese artist who uses operating railroad tracks in his art.

I’m expecting the poverty article to post around 10, with the weekly summary posting around 11.
