Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and this is an excellent political explainer: The Republican Choice.

This is an excellent long read: The Ghost Hunter. And another: In Search of King David's Lost Empire. One more: The Twilight of the Iranian Revolution.

From Wally, another casualty of COVID-19: Ballpark Peanuts, a Classic Summer Pleasure, Have Been Benched. A tremendous cover: The Lovecats - Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain.

From Mak K, and what a bizarre story: 'We live in a cage': residents hide as macaque 'gangs' take over Thai city

From C. Lee, and this is worthwhile: Transcribe Anti-Slavery Letters to Help Historians. Intriguing: Scientists induce state of artificial hibernation in mice. Ah, the 'Peter Principle': The reasons why people become incompetent at work. A very odd story: Why Soviet Russia Named a Tomato After an American Celebrity. I never get tired of grift stories: The Liechtensteinian Lady Burglar and Her Mysterious Trunk. This is a fascinating transcript: Patent Racism.
