Steve Gordon leads off with a sweet and sour Heard on the Hill. The sweet part was Friday’s jobs report and an economic comparison of where the economy was two years ago vs. today.

Larry Smith updates us on trade, and Steve Ruhlen continues his introduction of the appropriations process with an article that discusses the possibility that some form of earmarks may return.
