Greg Dworkin starts with a data round-up: Americans' preferences on ideal family size has changed; measles outbreak did little to change resistance to vaccination; trends in health insurance enrollment; and the latest from New Hampshire. In politics: Republicans still not serious about "replacing" Obamacare; what divides the 2016 Gop field; Jeb "his own man" on Iraq; Gop's uphill battle for Hispanics; the times catch up to Bernie Sanders; Obama demonstrates how and why retail politics matter; speaking of which, Hillary is headed to Dem rivals' home states; a brief UK elections round-up; Matt Bevin's KY comeback, and; coffee is, for the moment, good for you. Then, onto the bin Laden bombshell presented by Seymour Hersh, and the push-back against it. Plus a digital age cautionary tale with a little "new economy" twist.
