This is what the election should really be about. I live in Illinois... my presidential vote counts for less here than almost anywhere else in the country.

This is great -- "remorselessly gritty", eh +David Woo ?

However, "We are all fragile when we don’t know what our purpose is".

Today’s youth may be emotionally fragile because of overprotective parents. But another reason may be that they haven’t found their purpose.

Best thing read all day:

"This was made glaringly apparent back in 2009, when a graduate student conducted an fM.R.I. scan of a dead salmon and found neural activity in its brain when it was shown photographs of humans in social situations. Again, it was a salmon. And it was dead."

This is great! I had to spend a night in Heathrow Airport once because I found out the Tube wouldn't get me to the airport in time for a morning flight.

It is difficult to beat out U2 and Coldplay, but the article has some good points -- 8 #1 singles, 23 top-ten singles, 7 British chart-topping albums.

But someone at The Economist must love Oasis...

This segment really seemed really unprofessional and out of place on the PBS NEWSHOUR last night (note especially 2:41):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLH36ML8IEU

Now, I used to like videos like this when I was a kid, and still do enjoy them on Nova and such, but it was weird on the NEWSHOUR. I guess this is what happens when "journalism" is made to try and attract Millennials.

I believe he's still alive -- I don't see any obit online and his Wikipedia article has no expiration date yet. But yeah, I think this sort of thing COULD kill him.

Also, Double Li's is flexible and fun -- when my brother came back to the states after 6 months in China he was able to practice his Mandarin and order an item off the menu!
