The Washington Post runs a story about games as an aid to stave off dementia, which is hardly newsworthy.

Only, in this article, the quoted researcher is pushing his own game:

In a study of 33 families, satisfaction was higher after playing Cohen’s game with a relative with dementia than after a visit that involved no game-playing.

Well, duh. But what does that have to do with the game he’s pushing? You’ll get the same results with Old Maid.
