* Parsing the president's budget proposal to reveal his priorities.
* Daily Kos has an amusing guide to the conservative movement.
* What you need to know about the latest bird flu breakout.
* "This will indeed be the first, real world deployment of a directed energy weapon."
* Good reads on the Brad Paisley controversy: Miguel Centellas on why the Confederate flag is offensive. Ta-Nehisi Coates on the problematic assumptions in the song. Eric Weisbard on white southern musical identity.
* Nice! Zen Pencils gives Jack London a superhero twist. Commentary is well worth it, too.
