New York Daily News: Brush with default exposed extreme politicians of left and right who voted to crash the economy
When Alexander Hamilton, as the first Treasury secretary, starting in 1789, began issuing debt to borrow on the good name of the new government of the United States until now, there has never been a default on its loans. Ever. That’s 234 years of paying its obligations despite a Civil War, a…

Elon Musk’s Neuralink received approval last month from the Food and Drug Administration to conduct human clinical trials, which one former FDA official called “really a big deal.” I do not disagree, but I am skeptical that this technology will “change everything.” Not every profound technological advance has broad social and economic implications.
President Joe Biden signs debt ceiling deal into law, averting historic default over the weekend.

I’ve never had a smartphone or used social media, and I’m in my 40s. So when I see young people such as 17-year-old Logan Lane and those in her “Luddite Club” take a stand and pause the technology that’s been in their lives since birth, I am in awe.

Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona recently confirmed that student loan repayments would begin again later in 2023, delivering what is likely to be a severe financial shock to borrowers who have not had to make payments for three years. This puts greater urgency on lawmakers to fix the flaws in the best idea for easing the transition: the "income-driven repayment" plan.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch: The far right has lost its monopoly on internet misinformation, and that's sad
Much attention in the culture wars tends to focus on how wacky the far right can be when it comes to embracing wild conspiracy theories and internet misinformation.

Durham report reveals an agency so steeped in politics that it violated its own standards
Ron DeSantis apparently wants to be president. His pitch rests on the "Florida blueprint," the stuff he's done as the state's governor. But the assumption that the American majority wants much of the DeSantis program is shaky. It's not even clear that Floridians do.
I attended two graduation ceremonies earlier this month, including a University of Georgia gala replete with fireworks at Sanford Stadium in Athens. At both events, I was struck with how many more women than men crossed the stage.
