Every once in a while, (and sometimes each day) I listen to a great podcast, enjoy an article, or see a good video that I want to share with you.
I like to think of them as my e-links:

At a time when it’s tough to get an unbiased policy summary of our two presidential candidates, I was delighted to have discovered a 19 minute WSJ The Journal podcast with a good economic comparison. Do listen to it before the election.
