On my mind: I did not watch the debate last night. The damage this election is doing to America and Americans is tremendous and likely long-lasting. It is anathema to borrow anything from foreigners but how about campaign time limits? The Brits make do with a month and get politicians of similar, ahem, quality. Here’s how we got to 2-year plus campaigns.
- Poorer countries need rapid access to generic drugs, UN says and how parents harnessed the power of social media to challenge EpiPen prices.
- Israel splashes out in campaign to attract tourists. I don’t see that I would pick Israel for a beach getaway. The airport departure experience alone is enough to sweep away any relaxation.
- Trekking to the Toronto suburbs for excellent, cheap Chinese food. Glad the NYT didn’t visit any of our favorites.
- Free 500 bonus FlexPerks points. I have a new FlexPerks card from the Olymipics offers, glad to see this long-running bonus active and points post immediately.
