Guys we just replaced a black, highly competent constitutional law professor with a white, morally bankrupt dullard as our president because so many white people thought the black guy was too scary. Maybe Charles is onto something.

Let's remember that correlation is not causation. If you adjust for socioeconomic status, the benefits of breastfeeding are not quite as exaggerated. It turns out that many of the same privileges which allow mothers to breastfeed in the first place (time and money) are also beneficial to babies. While it seems likely that breastfeeding is at least marginally better than formula, the most important factor is not being poor. As usual.

Wouldn't it be hideously ironic if Clay Bennett stole the Sonics just when things were looking so optimistic (getting Kevin Durant, etc) and then we got them back as an empty husk just after he'd squandered it all due to his shitty ownership. I don't even like basketball but god, I fucking hate that guy.

Welp, you can add me to the chorus of folks who are dismayed at the departure of Paul Constant. I used to read Slog religiously, but with the mystifying changes of late I've found it increasingly less appealing. Paul was the heart of Slog and this is a huge loss. To the Stranger/Slog of yore: I miss you, old friend.

"Eradicating measles" you mean like we ALREADY DID in 2000? *rage*

My only complaint is that the header text is unnecessarily enormous compared to the article text. A longish article title can take up like half the screen on my phone which is irritating. Everything else I can probably get used to, but man I really, really hate the giant headers.

@5, or she's just on maternity leave, dude.

That last sentence dangling on there cracked me up. A+, Charles.

@6, I would much rather watch what you described.

My two favorite things from this week:

1. When asked about his elbow injury, Richard Sherman said, “If I had to slap my brother, I’d be able to do it."

2. Michael Bennett's brother, Martellus Bennett, who plays for the Bears, is also self-nicknamed, and that nickname is Black Unicorn. I love the Bennetts.
