Morning Links for Nov. 7, 2013
Trans fats, Chick-fil-A, and Brett Favre. Hear that? BRETT FAVRE!
Morning Links is full of true-life stories. Things we cannot make up. Things we wouldn't want to make up:
- A recent study in Neurology suggests that being bilingual has benefits beyond utility. It could delay the onset of dementia. Time to sign up for that Spanish class?
- Swaddling is a new parent’s best friend. Wrap that infant up like a burrito. But wait… swaddled babies might be at greater risk for hip dysplasia.
- OK, let’s fan the flames on that silly talk about bringing back Brett Favre to the Green Bay Packers field now that Aaron Rodgers has a broken collarbone. As one writer so colorfully (and ridiculously?) puts it: "Let's bring this gunslinger back for one last rodeo." Oh, geez.
- Apparently the Food and Drug Administration no longer wants trans fats to enter your body. And it's taking steps to stop the rancorous curs from being in our food.
- Funny. I know someone who perks up at the words "Chick-fil-A." But things are not all hunky-dory in the quest for a chicken sandwich. A shooting at Jacksonville, Florida Chick-fil-A was caused by a woman who cut in the drive-thru line.
