|Tonight on TDS, Steven Brill ; and on TCR, Dancer Lil Buck.|
|Jon's guest tonight is another incarnation of CEO-Man, Steven Brill. It seems he'll be talking about a recent Time article about health care spending/costs (which was originally supposed to be at The New Republic, but they went with another story. And much kerfluffle ensued).
A brief go-over of some of his previous work doesn't inspire me to pay much attention to Brill, and a slightly-more-than-skim of Bitter Pill: Why Medical Bills Are Killing Us doesn't challenge those assumptions. This brief mention is worth looking at, though:
No one writes smart responses to an article of this length in a matter of hours, but for the time being, here are three things to remember as you make your way through Brill’s article.

|Stephen, now, has this guy:
Lil Buck is of course on twitter (@LILBUCKDALEGEND) and facebook, and there is much youtube. He's been written up in a bunch of places (many linked in that twitterstream), including a dance review at NYTimes and a recent piece in The Atlantic, Lil Buck Exports Jaw-Dropping Memphis Street Dance to China, which talks about the documentary Lil Buck Goes to China.
