From Julie: New studies prove that it really was bubonic plague in London 350 years ago. (And we think 2016 has been rough.)
From Cassandra: The Booth Poverty Map, compared with a 2000 map, is all sorts of fascinating.
From the vaults of Links I Meant to Post But Never Did: Behold Carol Kaye, the beach girl bass player among the Beach Boys.
Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you next week.
