commented on The More I Learn About Breast Milk, the More Amazed I Am
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.

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.
