Short Takes

Townhall Meetings. The Democrats' 30 Something Working Group are made up of Representatives under the age of 40 addressing the youth's questions about Social Security on the floor of the house, around the country and online.

Representative Kendrick Meek (D-FL) is holding an online townhall meeting tomorrow, Friday, March 10 at 12:00 EST. You can submit questions here.

Archives of previous online townhall meetings by other representatives can be found here.

TRO Against USA Next. A judge has issued a temporary restraining order against USA Next from further use of a gay couple's photo in their anti-AARP ad. "This is a big deal because it means the judge has found that the guys have reasonable likelihood of winning their case, and he also said he could see how they could get damages", according to John Aravosis of Americablog.org, spokesman for the couple who filed the $25 million lawsuit against USA Next.

Cunning Realist. Talking Points Memo links to a new blog by an investment banker and self-avowed conservative with reservations about George W. Bush's privatization plan.

It's an inside look from someone who would directly benefit from privatization but has second doubts because of "the cynical, pure self-interest of friends of mine in the business and brokerage community, or the ham-fisted use of the same 'crisis' rhetoric that justified the war in Iraq, or the fact that President Bush refuses to actually put forth a specific plan".
