*Megan McArdle on whether World War II ended the Great Depression. Francis Cianfrocca responds here.

*Michelle Malkin looks at how ACORN plans "civil disobedience" to stop foreclosures, thus prolonging the cycle of bad housing loans.

*Genghis at Ace notes the Democratic Party ties of the latest guy accused by the SEC of a billion-dollar fraud. This should sound familiar.

*The New Republic profiles the Politico's knack for scoops and - what comes with that - penchant for inaccuracy. That said, you can smell the jealousy from the newspapermen quoted here (is Bill Keller really the guy to talk about unsustainable business models?)

*Bill Simmons on Mike D'Antoni's offensive system and its limitations. Somewhere, Paul Westhead smiles.

To the surprise of no one, he donated to both sides - and the list is only for who is left in the current Congress!

Also to the surprise of no one, political partisans choose not to include these simple facts in order to point fingers at the other side.

It's almost always the case that guys like that give to both sides. That said, Republicans heard no end about Ken Lay and Jack Abramoff the last 8 years, and the justification given was always that they gave more to one side. Goose, meet gander.

Crank,
I look forward to your (par for the course) well-researched post about how Ken Lay was a Democrat.
