"Law #4: Tell a Really Big Lie: Simplify your story down to one lie and keep repeating it ad nauseum until it is the prevailing consensus mythology and most everyone accepts it as fact."
This is a nice story.
What can you say? Geez.
I'm not sure "America's heart" is broken, but it is sad: (If the story doesn't appear, refresh your browser to bring it up.)
In a time of scarce consensus, everyone agrees that something has rotted in San Francisco. . . .
You no longer leave your heart in San Francisco. The city breaks it. . . .
“I can’t tell you the number of friends who tell me how much they hate San Francisco,” says former city supervisor Jane Kim. Which is something given that she ran for mayor in the 2018 special election. (Kim came in third.)
Nice to see Don Norman sticking up for us old people.
Also of interest: "What are some mind-blowing facts about the biology of aging?"
Sabine Hossenfelder says modern physics says we don't have free will. That doesn't really bother me, but if it bothers you, she also has some suggestions for how to cope.
It's always the last place you look.
I've thought for a while that we could, for most students, cut a year out of high school and also cut a year of college. So I like the idea of this a lot.

The autobahn for SF to LA? Sound like it could be worth trying.
A testimony to the human spirit. Simply glorious.

Steven Hayward at Powerline smashes the "If a Liberal didn't win, it must be because voters were suppressed" argument.
At last, the journal the profession has been waiting for. (I kid, I kid.)
(My former NC State colleagues had this idea a long time ago. The name they preferred, however, was The Journal of Short and Shitty Papers.)
But please do remember "Government is the name we give for the things we do together."
As always, macroeconomics is difficult.
Ranks up there with licensing hair dressers and interior decorators (only three states plus D.C., but should be zero). Add another one to my sarcastic "Government is the name we give for the things we do together" file.
Pretty cool. (2.5 minute video.)
Blink Health sounds good to me.
Three pretty good folks to "weigh in".
One of the very best five-minute sequences from Johnny Carson's Tonight Show.
