Weekend linkage

1)

Ellie and I spent much of last week, and some of this, with my parents. Jared had gone on a missions trip so we went to mooch off Grandma and Grandpa. Ellie was beside herself with excitement when they took her to a park with a STREAM that she could SPLASH IN, or when I'd go outside with her to sit on the swing and watch my dad work on the chicken coop.

2)

Funny: the best foot-in-mouth quotations from history.

3)

This will be interesting: Netflix airing new drama about Queen Elizabeth II.

4)

From The New Atlantis, excerpts from what looks like a fascinating book: "The Population Control Holocaust" and "The Truth about DDT."

The book is Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism, by Robert Zubrin.

5)

"The Rat Hunters of New York."

6)

Rating your parents' terrible grocery store coffee

7)

Members of the Washington Ballet demonstrate their hardest moves . . . in slow motion. Very cool.

8)
