The day’s not done, but I am. You’re on. Final notes:
* CUTTING EDGE ARKANSAS: More deep review of Arkansas’s novel “private option” approach to expanding Medicaid in the Washington Post, with a couple of references to our David Ramsey’s sterling work. Does the math add up? (Even if it does, can Republicans deliver enough votes to pass it here?) Don’t know yet. I still can’t get over the irony that at least some Republicans are taking credit for a plan that — no matter how you spin it — implements Obamacare and dramatically expands government health care. I should not look a gift elephant in the mouth, I guess.
* SKIING DEATH: 40/29 reports the death in Colorado of UA Chemistry Department Chair Robert Gawley, who collapsed while skiiing at Steamboat. A heart attack is suspected.
