3.What does that missing plane tell us about national security in Asia? Jessica Trisko Darden explains what we're learning.

4. Joshua Tucker on Vladimir Putin's motivations .

5. Dan Larison on Mitt Romney.

6. Always read Ta-Nehisi Coates. This time on Barack Obama, Paul Ryan, liberals and conservatives.

7. Also see Jamelle Bouie on why talking about race sounds different coming from Republicans.

8. More on religion and guns from Sarah Posner.

9. And Jonathan Cohn debates Avik Roy on the Affordable Care Act.
