I have a new story in this week's print edition, on public school funding or the lack thereof. At Democracy in America, I discuss why I like Mormons and, in the effort to decide how creepy Anthony Weiner is, propose a corollary to Steven Levitt's daughter test.

One of the aforementioned reasons for liking Mormons is that they're really nice. Incidentally, I came to Minneapolis this morning (to cover Netroots Nation); the first person I met gave me a free train ticket, and the next carried my bag. Mormons, Minnesotans, and Muppets: the axis of American niceness?
