Jason DeParle of the New York Times covers the new group of interns arriving at the Heritage Foundation:

Great story about how the Heritige Foundation is making sure that it raises the next generation of conservative leaders.
And let's get one thing straight: they're not here to run the copying machine.
The summer interns of the Heritage Foundation have arrived, forming an elite corps inside the capital's premier conservative research group. The 64 interns are each paid a 10-week stipend of $2,500, and about half are housed in a subsidized dorm at the group's headquarters, complete with a fitness room.
