"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

Two interesting posts on the Social Security "crisis":

--Kevin Drum outlines his entire position on Social Security in one post (a useful idea). It amounts to "We don't need to do anything right now, and private accounts might be a good idea as a principle but they must be created in a fiscally honest manner".

--Greg at The Talent Show tackles the Rove memo, particularly Rove's comment about the "six-decade" battle over Social Security.

Greg's post gives much more weight to the "decapitation" motivation on the right that I discussed in this post a few weeks ago, while Kevin deals with the idea of private accounts as something that has the capability to be done right. I'm 80/20 in Greg's camp on this one.

Busy through Saturday night, don't expect much.
