George Harrison Explains Why Everyone Should Play the Ukulele, With Words and Music

Well, that seals the deal. I'm going to dust off my tonight and start strumming again tonight.

Marc Bellemare has confirmed his original finding that the more farmers markets there are per million people in a state, the more cases of norovirus and campylobacter cases there are.

> Our estimates indicate that for every additional farmers market per million, there are six additional cases of food-borne illness per million, and that a doubling of the number of farmers markets in the average state-year would be associated with an economic cost of at least $220,000.

A lot of people are going to say farmers markets cause food-borne illness. And Jayson Lusk has argued recently that big is better for food safety. I'm having trouble, though, wrapping my head around what might constitute a counter argument. Is there a way to measure concentration in the food industry and some aspect of food borne illness?

Cracking good story, so well reported.

Makes me wonder about the cost -- human and financial -- of doing this sort of thing in this day and age. I don't give 538 any support, but I definitely would if there were an easy way to do so on a per article basis.

That's interesting. Any details?

Checking out [quill](quill.p3k.io) to see if I can use it to post to my WithKnown site. Seems to be a reply?

Keep forgetting WithKnown isn't happy with Markdown links
