Monday's Child is Full of Links!

1.  Jones Act, you are not good.

2.  The symbol of British democracy is rotting from within.  A metaphor, or just a fixer-upper?

3.  Economists are bad at Twitter.

4.  People fuss at each other on Twitter, about whether people who go to Hamilton can keep track of the Jazz game during the play.

5.  The price of losing respect for the MSM: People believe their dog can get autism from a vaccine.

6.  Turns out the DC press corps can dish it out, but they can't take it.  This is my "not surprised at all" face.

7.  When will AI exceed human performance, by specific function.

8.  This is...I'm not sure how to explain it, exactly.

9.  Of all the places to be a jerk and physically resist a police officer, I would not think an airplane was a good man. But Florida Man has to be Florida Man.

10.  Max the pup, in Australia, helps save 3 year-old Aurora. A sweet story. But also amazing, since Max is 17, deaf, and almost blind. 

The Grand Lagniappe:  Robin Grier sent me this piece about erotic significance of whale hips. I often mention that whale hips are an atavism. But, it turns out they are useful, just not to their original purpose.  Whales couldn't get busy without being hip, it appears.
