Scalzi with another personal finance rant— this one on idiots who complain about taxes but don’t actually understand the marginal tax system. I think that’s probably a whole lot of folks. Maybe when I run out of post ideas I’ll add some post primers of basic concepts. It’ll be like class prep. (ETA: Read this post if you or a loved one has written or read a political blog post recently. Especially if you don’t understand how marginal tax rates work.)
What is an HSA? I love you CNN Money. Though on further reading, they’re conflating the HSA with the high deductible insurance it’s usually used in conjunction with, but taking both as a whole, it’s good.

Jo Walton on The Suck Fairy. Such a good term!
Sandy L. with a great discussion on how creativity is a skill you can build up just like any other.
I wonder if I know the guy at Pop Economics… he’s doing a great job of summarizing literature I’ve read and talks I’ve been to. I’m probably not going to get into this material very often on the blog, so it’s good that he’s there doing a great job explaining the cutting edge.
So, if the Punch Debt in the Face guy comments a lot on Budgeting in the Fun Stuff’s blog but never stops by here to say anything, should I be jealous? He even said in advance he sucks for not commenting on blogs… I can’t help it though, I forgive him because I’m in love with his stick figures.
