Friday Links!

Leading off this week, a remarkable story: Friendly family man’s deathbed confession reveals his role in massive 1969 bank robbery

Carl H. was kind enough to provide a gift link for anyone who wants to read the Kim Mulkey profile: The Kim Mulkey way

From Wally, and it's very, very clever: If Bach (and others) Wrote The "Cantina Band" Song (Star Wars)

From Sean R., another bullshit grift variation: Soup to nuts: Chicken Soup for the Soul was almost as big as the Bible. Then it lost its way.

From John W., and it's genuinely beautiful: The Eagles - Hotel California - Reimagined on the Traditional Chinese Guzheng | Moyun.

From C. Lee, and it's an unending decline: RNC asks job applicants if they believe 2020 election was stolen in ‘litmus test’. Next, a fascinating read: Photographer steps inside Vietnam’s shadowy ‘click farms’. What a massive mistake: Users ditch Glassdoor, stunned by site adding real names without consent. An interesting read: How AI could explode the economy (and how it could fizzle).. A fascinating man and an excellent article: William Baumol, whose famous economic theory explains the modern world, has died. Uh-oh! Sexually transmitted infection rates have risen sharply among adults 55 and older, CDC data shows. Another phenomenal read: Lane’s Gambit: the onetime chess phenom walked away from the game years ago. She was happier for it. Every one of these links is an excellent read: The Artful Spy who Stopped Hitler from Emptying the Louvre. It's a strange, unsettled situation: Do you still believe in Shohei Ohtani? I’m not sure
