days are meaningless linked list: hospital algorithms, books reduce recidivism, dining as a couple

- This Algorithm Accidentally Predicted Which Hospital Patients Were Most Likely To Die - neat! (thanks Dan!)

- To reduce recidivism rates, give prisoners more books - win-win!

- The Economics of Dining as a Couple - funny, and the best part is the standard disclaimer at the bottom: "This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners." For the record, David and I are somewhere between options 2 and 3.

- A theory of creepiness - a little more philosophical than I usually like, but I found it interesting.

- Blame BP for Deepwater Horizon. But Direct Your Outrage to the Actual Mistake. - yeah, many of these types of failures are systemic and build up over a long period of time.

- Texas Put Under Court Supervision After Lying to Voters About Illegal ID Rules - sigh

- How the Maker of the EpiPen Made Government Its Ally - yeah, this is the problem with...lobbyists, I guess? Something is wrong here.

- More than a hundred Star Trek cast and crew sign off on anti-Trump letter - random, but neat I guess!

- Firefox is eating your SSD – here is how to fix it
