We’re having a pretty good month here. Our Readers Spotlight – your notes and comments – got a nice response so we’ll be doing that regularly from now on. So send us mail!

Need food for thought? Here’s a Spotlight of what’s been going on.

Scott Olin Schmidt got a lot of attention last week (Thanks, Glenn!) for his suggestion that Republicans might benefit from having Democrats run the U.S. House of Representatives.

There’s nothing like a little “loyal opposition” to get things going, of course. But Chris Nolan, surveying the sad state of affairs with California Democrats, has some issues with Schmidt’s proposal.

Nolan’s also gotten some nice pointers (Thanks, Mark!) for her speculation that the White House was out-sourcing its foreign policy to software moguls. That’s running on the same track that Tom Friedman explored this week in his column about California and China.

Our Spot-on Moms, Jeanne Jackson and Deborah Klosky – working independently – serve up with some pointed – and hilarious – comments about the current state of women’s fashion. Believe it or not, the Spanish government is worried. And, as Jeanne points out, maybe that’s not such a bad idea.

As for bad ideas, Matthew Holt has a few thoughts on the Bush Administration’s latest efforts in the health care area. You always thought those hospital bills were, uh, unrealistic? You were right. Matthew tells you why.

Speaking of unrealistic, check out Christopher Brauchli’s take on health care, executive compensation and the growing divide between those who has and those who hasn’t quite enough to get by. Matthew follows up on that theme today.

As always, thanks for reading. And don’t forget our BlogHer reader survey! It will help us a lot.
