Guardian. Help me. Kids will lie either to get meds or look healthy, depending on what outcome they prefer. Plus there is reason to think that messing with the chemistry of developing brains is not such a good idea. Plus what if the child has reason to be depressed, as it he’s bullied or had a parent die?
Scientific American. Back in the day when I had a gay tech guy who was on the periphery of the gay club scene, even I noticed how many in his circle were ketamine fans and wound up in “K-holes” way too often. Now I wonder if they were all self-medicating without knowing it..

Asia Times. The South Korean and local governments were running what amounted to sex slavery operations, often knowing the girls were minors to boot.
BBC. I need to read the speech, but it appears May managed to say very little.
Financial Times. She can’t have told them to face very many facts if Rees Mogg wasn’t foaming at the mouth. However, I was mistaken, I had thought this was a speech before Parliament, not a City group.
Richard North. May appears to have used slightly different verbiage to restate the same unworkable positions. No wonder the Brexiteers are chuffed.

Wall Street Journal (Kevin W). Admittedly apocryphal, but I prefer Elizabeth I per the movie version (Cate Blanchette): “I do not like wars. They have uncertain outcomes.”M

Politico (Leslie J). JFK? Are you kidding? JFK went to Harvard and was from a super rich family. His father was first head of the SEC and an ambassador to the Britain, remember?
Daily Beast (furzy)
Financial Times. Forgot to include this yesterday. Wells of course says this was an error. Funny how those errors are to the benefit of Wells’ profits.

Axois. Way overdue.

I made a donation and hope those of you who are able will do so too. As Lambert noted yesterday in WaterCooler, the teachers are making and delivering meals to students before they hit the picket line:
Help WV teachers their families and students while they're on strike here:

Antidote du jour (Tracie H):
And a bonus video. Richard Smith had trained his two Bengals to do a lot of tricks, but he uses a clicker (supposedly the right way to do it, you click to let them know they performed correctly, and then you give them a treat. That way, if the treat isn’t immediately forthcoming, they still know it is on its way). This cat performs without getting any reward other than praise. I think he like having his adorable white front paws admired.
And an even better bonus, from Richard:
If starting your weekend by cleaning a bat is wrong, then I don't want to be right.
