Observational Linkorama

  • You want to know why healthcare has problems in this country? Stuff like this. A researcher develops a checklist to reduce hospital infections. But he has to with-hold because of privacy concerns (which do not apply to a study like this).
  • Boy that War on Terror is going well. A couple is banned for life for taking pictures of their kids.
  • Did Giuliani really reduce crime in NYC? The whole country was seeing an improvement. I agree that Giuliani gets a bit too much credit for the improvement in Gotham. But he was an intrinsic part of the national push that reduced crime, engaging in the policies that everyone else was using.
  • Copyright violations apparently only work one way. I’m waiting for my daughter’s smiling face to appear on a diaper ad.
