Interesting . . .
"San Francisco rent is so expensive that a law firm bought a $3 million plane to fly its people in from Texas instead of having them live there"

"Five ways to fix statistics"

Interesting, especially because it introduced me to a fine idea by David Colquhoun and then to his blog.  Two posts from his blog:

"We know little about the effect of diet on health. That’s why so much is written about it". (And he links to a short paper by John Ioannidis, "Implausible results in human nutrition research".)

"Placebo effects are weak: regression to the mean is the main reason ineffective treatments appear to work".
