News roundup

Some reading material …

High Five Nation, The New York Times, David Brooks

An excerpt: “When you look from today back to 1945, you are looking into a different cultural epoch, across a sort of narcissism line. Humility, the sense that nobody is that different from anybody else, was a large part of the culture then.”

Young Adults Likely to Pay Big Share of Reform’s Cost, The Washington Post, Shailagh Murray

An excerpt: “A 2008 study by the Urban Institute found that more than 10 million young adults ages 19 to 26 lack health insurance coverage. For many of those people, health-care reform would offer the promise of relatively inexpensive individual policies, which do not exist in many states today. The trade-off is that young people would no longer be permitted to bet on their good health: All the reform legislation before Congress would require individuals to buy at least minimal coverage.”
