A few things I was glad to read this week:
A nine-year-old blogger in Scotland who exposes the poor quality of school lunches gets shut down by local pols. From Maryn McKenna's Superbug. Thanks to David Dobbs for flagging.
Encouraging kids to help with cooking and cleaning makes them smarter later by reshaping their brains. By Geekmom Laura Grace Weldon. Thanks to Annie Murphy Paul for flagging.
