Cleaning out the weekend inbox:

Good morning,

Here are some things I found interesting over the weekend:

I'm hoping to get my post on the Boswell/Lamberti debate up later today, in the meantime, Chris has his self-proclaimed "Go Boswell" post up and the Register has this piece, which is probably shorter than it could be but pretty fair, well written and doesn't miss a ton of things.

Also in this morning's Register, an extended story on a school in Waterloo experimenting with year-round classes and single gender classrooms. It's a great read on what sounds like a relatively successful idea.

Iowa Ennui has a good post up this morning on immigration and Steve King. Lamberti did advocate for "the fence" at yesterday's debate. Fair or unfair, when I think of the fence, I think of Steve King's decision to compare Mexicans to livestock. If Lamberti wants to have any chance to win, he's going to need to be a little more careful to not look like Steve King.

I don't know how many people read Yepsen's column a few weeks ago which could've been re-labeled budgeting 101 (You need to bring in more than you spend? Shocking.), but he did a better job with this one, which ties budget issues back to the gubernatorial race.

I voted for Tim Brien in June. I regret it.

Joe from the Tax Update Blog has taken up the challenge I laid down in this post about tax law and the role of tax professionals. I have a ton of respect and admiration for Joe, I'm glad he's taking the time to debate with me on this. I'll have a response up in its own post, hopefully later today.

So, to sum it up, here are the things I'm hoping to finish today:

Lamberti vs Boswell recap
More on the state of our nation's tax code

And as always, as news breaks, I'll probably be shortly behind it.
