Dear patient readers,
Your humble blogger is still behind. I wanted to do a Brexit post but that will have to wait. I spent time with the tLC which in theory should be able to find the ride where I lost my laptop based on key variables but has not. A tech guy who sounded promising wasn’t willing to accept my requirements, but I think another candidate will work out.

Guardian. Crap reporting and like pretty much all diet-related studies, the study sounds lousy too (read it ). Correlation is not causation. And the study method was awful too:
Those people filled out questionnaires on their eating patterns on two occasions, six years apart
Counterepunch (Chuck L). My first MD (a cardiologist in his late 30s) was perfectly fine with debating his diagnoses, in fact he seemed to enjoy it in case he’d missed or overweighted something. But it’s not hard to see why psychotherapists are less secure.

Resistance Twitter has spent the last few hours informing me that it's Russian to disrespect John McCain. This isn't the first time I've freaked out centrists by dissing McCain, but it's definitely the first time they've woven it into their Russia hysteria. They're getting worse.

With 90 per cent of companies in the S&P 500 having reported their results for the second quarter, net profit margins hit 11.8 per cent, the highest level since financial information provider FactSet began recording the data in 2008.

Oddly, I don’t see any mention of teaching the youth about predatory lending, foreclosure fraud, phony account creation, transaction reordering to maximize overdraft fees, or usury interest rates on credit cards. Perhaps those are in the advanced second-year curriculum?
