There seem to be more twins nowadays than ever before. And we don't even mean in absolute terms, which would be obviously true. We meant that, per capita, the amount of twins feels higher. Maybe it's due to decreasing child mortality, maybe IVF has created, beyond just octomoms, plenty of bi-moms/di-moms. Or maybe there's just something in the air. And this week, we've got twin articles, for a twin issue! Our wonderful printing company decided that our first week's issue was so nice, they'd print it twice, and are compensating us with a twin release of two weekly pillboxes, all in one day! A twin birth, though fraternal and not identical. And we all know fraternal just isn't as real. They aren't even twins, just siblings born on the same day.
