Last week to discuss health care reform? Matt Damon & Karl Rove share the re-write of the Iraq war and some USF students use their spring break to help the homeless:Mitch Perry Report 3.15.10

Happy first real day of Daylight Saving Time to you, too!

We couldn't help but realize as we watched the whole panoply of Sunday morning tv programs yesterday about how much of them in the past year have been dedicated to health care legislation.  Who knows, though?  This might be the final week we have to talk about it for awhile.

We went and checked out the new (anti)Iraq flick, Green Zone over the weekend (which apparently not too many other people did, as the excellent Alice in Wonderland continued to bring in the masses).  But it got us thinking about if things had been different in Iraq, or the way that Karl Rove tried to spin it yesterday on Meet The Press.

Last week was the first of what promises to be another 4 weeks of "spring break" for some college or high school students as they flock to the Sunshine State.  Local USF students enjoyed the week off last week, but as our Carla Alonso reports, some students were working to help out those less fortunate here in Tampa.
