Trio of Times

Three pieces have come out of the Times in the past few days that are well worth reading:

1) Why Doctors Need Stories by Peter Kramer, in which the esteemed author argues for the place of subjective narratives in psychiatric and psychological science.

2) Mental Health Issues Put 34,500 on New York’s No-Guns List by Anemona Hartocollis, in which someone finally reports on the dubious, civil-rights-infringing backlash of New York State’s Safe Act.

3) To Siri, With Love by Judith Newman, in which the mother of an autistic teenager describes the surprising depth of the relationship her son has developed with his iPhone’s artificial personal assistant.
