Monday's Child is Full of Links



1.  House of Drew. Justin Bieber's clothing line/house. And a commentary, by Drew, no less. But then Drew also wrote about "hovershoes," so perhaps he can't be trusted.

2.  California coast inundated by penis fish.

3.  At first, I read "Economics for people with Ha-choon Chang" as a prescription for someone with a particular condition. But Mr. Chang is the host of the video series.

4.  Republicans for Rule of Law, and their ads. And an ad.

5.  Empathy, you are not good.

6.  Ghosts of culture past. (A reading list)

7.  I believe that this is not a parody, and was actually staged by the Bloomberg campaign, thinking it would be a positive.  It is--positively--the whitest thing you will see today.

8.  Popular culture as product differentiation.

9.  Bitcoin ATM.

10.   Solar and wind are not enough.

11. Fruitcake.

12.  Divorce is changing. Because marriage is changing.

13. Bobby Jenks, "Scar Tissue." His stats.

14.  Red Letter Media guys review "RoS"

15.  The circle game....the racist symbol....the kerfuffle. My conclusion: The whole "if you make a symbol with your hand Ima put YOU in charge of MY feelings and reactions" thing is extravagantly dumb. I especially like the "the reason we know it's a hate sign is that there are many other meanings" logic.

16. All money is virtual.

17.  Long distance trade in timber?

18. Chicken trade wars are not good, and not easy to win.

19. Tom Steyer: gift to political science?

20.  Ron Manners and "Why I talk to Kelpie Dogs."  (and, Kelpie dogs, if you don't know)

21.  The War on Jewish Christmas

Grand Lagniappe:  Divine: Ahead of (pronoun's) time....
