We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I'm glad you reminded me about that characteristic of Gladwell's. I don't like his leaping to conclusions and lack of rigor, but he does have some humility, which is unusual in people who make their living with ideas.
I heard Epstein being interviewed on Zach Lowe's podcast. I thought he made a good case for his idea. He also seemed to be the sort of person who I wanted to discuss my disagreements with, rather than one I should just avoid in the future and have nothing to do with.

Is he related to the infamous/now deceased Mr. Jeffrey Epstein?
HERPES VIRUS CURE
There is a cure for Herpes with Herbal Medicine. My friend that was cured from diabetes introduced me to Doctor Ahmed Usman a Herbal Medicine doctor from Africa, that I should give him a try including his email, I contacted Doctor Ahmed Usman with the email address and I explained all the symptoms and infections on my body. He told me that his medicine works for two weeks if taken according to prescription, after much deliberation he sent the herbal medicine to my country which I received through courier service, and I took the medication as prescribed by the doctor, after a week I discovered that the sores on my genital part were gone, and I don't have constant headache and fever. After taking the medication for two weeks I went for a test and my Herpes IgG result was negative. Doctor Ahmed is indeed a great doctor, don't get discouraged by your friend or family. I pray you get your cure soon. This is Doctor Ahmed Usman email address; drahmedusman5104 @ g m a i l . c o m
