- On using patents to measure innovation. Fails to ask if using patents to measure innovation is better than nothing.
- Kimchi basics. “So much depth of flavor.”
- Reubin Andres, important weight control researcher, dies. “For some reason the idea has grabbed us that the best weight throughout the life span is that of a 20-year-old,” Dr. Andres said in a 1985 interview with The New York Times. “But there’s just overwhelming evidence now that as you go through life, it’s in your best interests to lay down some fat.”
- Margaret Wente, Globe & Mail columnist and serial something or other. Wente defends herself, plus 1922 comments, few or none of which support her. For example, “Apparently Margaret thinks that a compilation of her journalistic lapses is irrelevant if the person documenting them over time and bringing them to light is a person she doesn’t like.” More comment on Wente. Another Globe & Mail columnist uses her column to sell her house. The Globe & Mail is the New York Times of Canada.
