This week's must-read: Why is Tony Snow broke?

This Slate article takes an interesting angle on Tony Snow's resignation as press secretary, asking questions like: (1) Is Snow really broke? (2) Did he save for retirement during his corporate years? (3) How is he paying for his chemotherapy? And (4) How does this all square with the bullshit he's been feeding us as press secretary about the "ownership society" and how "health savings accounts" are the answer to our health care crisis?
