Personnel from two federal agencies typically associated with keeping people honest are feeling the heat this week.  Secret Service agents advancing the presidential visit to Colombia were found to have solicited prostitutes in their off-hours.  And a recent GSA conference in Las Vegas featured lavish perks and hired entertainers.  And, another spring, another economic dip: latest indicators offer dim prospects for a sustained economic recovery.  And the President's plan to freeze the cost of college loans begs larger questions over how to handle the soaring cost of college overall. (Our special guest today is Joshua Trevino, co-founder of Red State.com and communications director for the Texas Public Policy Foundation.)
