The kids aren't delicate, it's parents and lawmakers not allowing kids to experience things we did every day.

Media bias. At least one take on it, your mileage may vary.

Non-partisan doesn't mean right.

If Brazil were China, that would be pretty close to the correct location.

This also sort of works for Charleston or Savannah.

New Republic has tilted that far? Death of a fine rag, used to be taller and more center.

The Atlantic can't share space with Vox and Slate and the Nation. It's better than those

The Enquirer, strictly inaccurate/fabricated unless reporting about John Edwards, which just goes ta show ya, if the top of the heap doesn't do their job, it will be left to the bottom.

I find myself clicking on The Hill quite a bit. They seem level-headed, technically proficient, and they skew a little to the Right, which I intentionally seek out to counter-balance my implicit hard-Left opinions. NPR, BBC, The Economist are good choices, too.

Happiness report: Finland is world's 'happiest country' - UN

And the first four places go to the Scandinavians.
You know, those tall, blond(e) and perfect people? No wonder they're happy.
I have some Danish ancestry and have inherited the Scandinavian tall gene.
The blond(e) and perfect genes seem to have been allocated to someone else.

American Dwellars will be pleased to know that while you are only 18th in the Happiness Index, you're still one notch above us plucky Brits.
We've got broad shoulders.

I've been reading a fair amount of The Hill and Politico and listening to NPR. I still maintain that the format kills 24 hour cable news. It can't be decent because counting eyeballs is more important than the story.

Wanting some peace and quiet?
The interactive version of this map will tell you the road less traveled in each state.

They chose the Dalton Highway in Alaska as the best, but be warned that road is no casual Sunday drive, it goes to the North Slope oil fields.

What they have marked in green as Route 2 in NH is absolutely not Route 2. They had the right intentions and the pictures are accurate...

How popular is Donald Trump?

When you see an article that says, "Trump's approval rating is up/down" just ignore it--
Trump's approval/disapproval has been a straight line (+/- 2 points) for the last 12 months.

This is a detailed breakdown of how they (fivethirtyeight.com) compile these numbers.

An interesting article at Scientific American about outcomes vs the age old mantra of early detection.

The US internet. This is a map of the long haul fiber cables and junctions.
This was all built by private companies which are not exactly forthcoming with this information.
