New Antibiotics for CRE, Draft Lyme Guidelines, Cost of Measles Outbreaks, and More — a Labor Day ID Link-o-Rama

Labor Day! Could summer really be over?

Nah, we still have a few weeks — and as I’ve noted several times, this time of year (September-October) gives us far and away Boston’s best weather season.

On with the links.

(H/T to Keith Law for finding the cartoon.)

To finish — slow and steady wins the race (at least sometimes). I’ve watched this video too many times not to share it on this site, as it’s strangely compelling.

    Loved the cartoon, Paul! Thanks for that. And thanks for the link to the Lyme article on The Cut/New York mag website. I had read the article in The Atlantic, but not that one.

    Brilliant, Sir, as always. You are an unrelenting voice of reason in a culture that deprioritizes evidence and rational thought. Please never stop.
