Here’s what the Loop is reading Monday morning:

Nothin’ to see here — Ethics officials gave the GSA a clean bill of health just three days after that embarrassing Las Vegas conference that landed the agency in hot water.

Wealth of nations — The rich might be different than the rest of us, but we sure want to be like them, reports Manuel Roig-Franzia. Despite our villainizing of Mitt Romney’s riches, America’s got a rich history of electing the monied.

Health update — We’re learning more about Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s depression from his wife. She says he’s undergoing tests and treatment for what had become a “debilitating” condition and that she expects him to return to work — though at the moment, the Illinois Democrat is in a “news blackout.”
