  • From the Pew Center for the People & The Press: The Internet is the most popular news source among young people.  See the Tuck Reader for a local angle on a similar story.
  • From the NY Times: Hal Herzog says my basset hound doesn't make me healthier.
  • From Fox News: A psychology journal that I would sacrifice a finger to be published in publishes paper claiming to provide evidence of ESP.  What am I doing wrong?
