    Suicides, except in the most egregious cases, are probably unconnected to politics. Genetics, climate, SSRIs and similar drugs, and despair over being unhappy in a place where most of the population...

    You'll need spendy "athleisure" wear, a couple of window walls to exercise in front of, a sound track, and a social media claque to get the full effect.

    I'm lucky to have mostly (apparently) decent health, but if I were ever diagnosed with some chronic condition, I would do everything in my power to avoid drugs.

    I'm a fan of solid kitchen appliances, and an electric kettle is one of those. It isn't tied to the kitchen, which is a plus for me.

    I downloaded it from the library; I will definitely throw it back.

    Her barely-veiled contempt for her parents seems pretty sincere. I've liked some of her writing, but I may be through.
