Like most junk science that just won’t die, the polygraph stays with us. Even Aldrich Ames could see the polygraph was junk. NB, those who don’t shy from no-lie fMRI. From the wonderful Letters of Note.
Ben Carey Notes that Enemies Can Be Good for a Child’s Growth. This should not surprise.
And in one of those science stories that’s so fun I almost don’t care whether it’s true, the Times examines A Pattern of Sibling Risk-Taking in the Major Leagues. I should note that my brother was always a much bigger risk-taker than I was. Though he’s now a doctor working for the government, and I’m a freelance writer, so maybe these things change.
