The Greatest Team Athlete Ever--played in 16 championships, won 14, actual MVP for most--discusses his friendship with Celtics coach Red Auerbach.
"Forgotten," sure: I was a rising high school senior then but until a few weeks ago I had never heard of it. Supposedly 600,000 folks attended. Just the Allman Brothers, The Band, and the Grateful Dead.
The Stones, live from London, June 25th, 2022.
Yeah, they don't sound quite as good as they did: Keith and Mick were both 78 and Charlie is gone. But like the crack about the talking dog, the interesting thing isn't that he doesn't know how to say much, it's that he can talk at all.
Also one-hit wonders by genre.
Well, "nobody" is an exaggeration. And when confronted with how much higher their grocery bills would be without them, I don't doubt some of those currently opposed would change their minds.

This is weird. This site plays Seinfeld episodes--I haven't checked, but it seems likely, as stated--24/7. You can't fast forward. You can't choose the episode. You can just . . . watch.
(Which given it's Seinfeld, you could do a whole lot worse.)
Dog trainer Andrea Arden:
Dogs, we’re their whole life[.] [They’re] very well equipped to learn a lot about who we are and what we want from them.
An article I read referred to Los Angeles as "the bank robbery capital of the world". I thought: Really? Why? After a few seconds with Google, I answered my questions.
I don't know any of the science, but it has seemed to me that the search for "dark matter" is, at this point, similar to the failed search for the ether.
Suggestions for how to find useful, interesting stuff on the Net.
"The world's biggest ship docked in the UK yesterday, carrying 24 THOUSAND containers of consumer stuff"
This piece raises the same issue that I heard about a long time ago in graduate school: the active ingredients should be the same, but the so-called inactive ingredients--"binders, fillers, detergents, dyes, antioxidants, and sugars"--can differ and those differences might well be important.
Zero prices tend to do that.
An easy question to answer.
Hell, yes. I know that it exhausts me.
(I make no brief for the "study" cited.)
It does seem that way, but a careful, formal analysis would be welcome.

"But after noting how badly things are going, they reverse course and advise people to stop blaming the liberal policies of Boudin and the city government in general for the large number of drug overdose deaths. Instead, they’re blaming Walgreens. Yes, you read that correctly. The chain of pharmacies (which are robbed so often in the San Francisco area that several of them have closed down and moved away) is to blame for all of the drug addicts overdosing in the streets. You really can’t make this stuff up."
A diagnosis of our current problems and a ringing call for constructive change by Bari Weiss.
Another good change in the K-12 educational system.
Two former high-ranking employees of the Antitrust Division conclude as follows:
According to the complaint, Google increases the quality of it services by enlarging its user base and the best way to do that is through the sort of arrangement the government challenges. No one should expect the legal guidance from this case to be either clear or clearly in the consumer’s interest.
Nicole Gelinas praises what would have been considered just a short time ago just common sense.
After 904 nights of sleeping in Manhattan’s Midtown West, I took a three-day trip — to exotic, faraway Boston. What I found there was shocking: normalcy. Boston is a liberal city — but it is also a pragmatic city.
Indeed. It's the same problem we've had for two generations.
The U.S.--indeed the entire West--can play games with green this and green that, but it won't amount to a hill of beans unless China cuts sharply its coal production. And why would we expect them to do that?
It was a heck of a few weeks in February 2012.
If you get Amazon Prime or Freevee, I recommend the documentary, Linsanity. It's amazing to me that years after Moneyball showed that professional scouts and managers pay too much attention to how a player looks that it was still going on.
