Quick Links for Tuesday

* Must-read post from my friend Aaron Bady on coal-mining in Appalachia.

* Intergenerational warfare watch: Student loan debt poised to top a trillion dollars.

* Although it has still only released about 10% as much radiation as Chernobyl, Fukushima is now the second-ever accident to reach level 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale.

* Either President Obama is the world’s worst poker player, or he’s getting more or less the deals he wants. For what it’s worth my friend Steve Benen thinks reports that Obama will endorse Simpson/Bowles tomorrow are overblown; I suppose we’ll see.

* And Donald Trump’s birtherism has now catapulted him to the top of the GOP field. Astounding. Well done, sir.
