Telegraph. Snowball may be more accomplished, but I like for his enthusiasm.
NPR. Kevin W: ” Maybe they can relocate those Hydrogen Fluoride plants here.”
Mother Jones (UserFriendly)
New York Review of Books (Anthony L)
ScienceAlert (Kevin W). Um, sounds like the plot of a lot of horror movies.
Forbes (David L)
PhysOrg (UserFriendly). A pox on them. A colleague in Brooklyn’s toddler is a casualty. The child suffered a concussion when an e-scooter knocked him over. And without boring you with details, the child also is showing lasting symptoms as a result, like regular nightmares when he wasn’t subject to them before.
Atlantic. Um, someone needs to ask? Resilc: “We’ve run down the path toward public goods are bad and stupid…every person for his/herself….stage 2 of 5 stages toward USSR full on mode.” Moi: “The difference will be that in the USSR, there were hardly any goods in stores.

Smithsonian (Chuck L)
Financial Times (David L)
Asia Times (Kevin W). I don’t find the article claims credible. Can knowledgeable readers comment? For starters, China wouldn’t tolerate it, given its aim of total surveillance…..ex Huawei goods having lots of back doors. But what about non-China-origin products?
B Brexit New Yorker. This strikes me as far too kind to Johnson and his fellow travelers. If nothing else, the stakes were much lower in the LeCarre book.
Elijah Magnier (Chuck L)
Moon of Alabama (Kevin W)
YouTube (furzy). From late May, still germane.
Big Brother is Watching You Watch
Sydney Morning Herald (Kevin W). Ugh.

Health Care Renewal. Substantiation of Warren’s charge of corruption.
Democrats in Disarray
New York Times. UserFriendly: “lol based on their written platform Sanders just barely pushed the democrats to the left of center in 2016.”
. Washington Post (UserFriendly)
Atlantic. UserFriendly: “Seriously, if you don’t shoot me I’m going to have to do it myself.”
Pensions & Investments. DS: “This case could be significant on the issue of standing to sue fiduciaries. Not certain where the court will land.”
From Dan K:
Fox guest enthusiastically spins a new survey showing 23% of American expect to never retire: "What a great country where we have the opportunity to keep working. … We don't have to retire like generations before us. This is a great blessing! You should embrace it!"
