James Fallows is one of my favorite commentators on things political (he also has a great interest in aviation as well as in software). He has been called a “radical centrist” and I think that is a pretty good description of him. He regularly writes for The Atlantic Monthly (an excellent magazine) where he has been a national correspondent for many years. Before that he was editor and chief of U.S. News & World Report and earlier, he was Carter’s chief speech writer (the youngest person to hold that position at the time). He has a rather remarkable bio, which you can checkout on Wikipedia here if you are interested in learning more about him. Fallows has a blog. The story linked to below is from his blog and is very brief and written primarily by a federal worker who is likely to be furloughed because of the sequester. It has some good insights and is worth reading, as is Fallows blog.
