Good start for new CJR deficit beat reporter

I realize this probably reads like beat-sweetening, but I thought it worth noting that CJR's new Peterson Fellow, Felix Salmon, had a good post on the announcement yesterday from the 'deficit' commission co-chairs. And how un-serious it is.

Others have previously noted that it's a bit sketchy that Peterson (yes, that Peterson) funds someone at CJR to cover the coverage of deficit issues (Salmon's predecessor, Holly Yeager, who did great work, wrote about those tricky issues herself). But good work is good work.
