If you haven’t seen our exchange about last week’s cover story, "The Wrong Kind of Green," I encourage you to take a look. It features responses from many of the organizations profiled, and — along with some great letters to the editor — opens up some interesting lines for debate about the best approach to ending climate change. Read the forum here.

A few other highlights, shout-outs and pieces of news this week:

Chris Hayes Sits In for Maddow…

MSNBC could never replace Rachel Maddow, but our DC Editor Chris Hayes did her justice in his turn at the anchor chair on Tuesday. Hayes guest-hosted Maddow’s MSNBC show, using the hour to tackle issues including healthcare, immigration reform and consumer financial protection. Here is one of the best segments from the night, about Bart Stupak and his crusade to deny abortion rights – or tank healthcare reform:

If Only Financial Reform Were Funny …

As many of you know, I’ve been writing a weekly column for The Washington Post. This week I looked at the current state of financial reform, through the lens of the recent "Funny or Die" video featuring ex-Presidents haunting President Obama. Sadly, as I argue in the piece, President Obama may need to start listening to Jim Carrey’s Ronald Reagan on this important issue. Here’s my column.

Some Love from Utne Reader …

Utne Reader is one of our favorite magazines out there, curating content from across the independent media landscape on their website and in their bi-monthly magazine. In their most recent issue, Utne reprinted in full our recent "Ten Things" feature, guest written by Paul Butler – "Ten Things You Can Do to Reduce Incarceration." They also ran a nice excerpt from Lizzy Ratner’s recent report on young people and joblessness. If you don’t know Utne Reader, they have a great eye for underreported and distinctive stories — give them a look.

Slideshow: Women’s History, Across the Globe …

In honor of women’s history month, The Nation reached back into our archives for a collection of stories about milestones in women’s history and the courageous women behind them. From the early suffragettes to today’s reproductive rights activists, our current slideshow is an important and well-done look at women’s rights over the past 145 years.

Finally, I am heading to Moscow next week for some R & R (actually for a conference marking the anniversary of the launch of Perestroika) so my blogging will be sporadic. I will be reporting from Moscow when I can. Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend.
