?This & That:

This article has nothing in particular to do with sports, but everything to do with life because it analyzes how we think.  I’ve long held to the information brought out in these studies (which in its own way could be a confirmation of the validity of the studies), so I really hope you’ll give this a read and consider the content.  Perhaps if we understand why we think and act as we do, it can be a catalyst for positive change.  Thanks to law professor Jody David Armour for this find!
