i really think this is why early loves resonate strongly in memory - the past is so romanticisable.
maybe there is nothing, ever, that can equal the recollection of having been young together

Actually, the latest sunset should have already occurred (approx Dec 8th, depending on latitude), although the latest sunrise won't happen until January.

The Slate article sounds pretty plausible and in key with other research I've read about the "lower class economy." To me, it doesn't sound like it glorifies much.
If anything, it shows that quantifiable social science sometimes doesn't work all that well. Purely quantifiable social research really requires a mix of niavete and compliance that the people in this book obviously don't meet.

ericball, huh, didn't realize that.
Lex, yeah, I loved how in the 80s the survey question was like "how do you feel about being black and poor?"
