Thanks for reading this weekend, folks. I hope to be back here again soon, and in the meantime, you can follow me here.
Here’s what I’m settling down to this afternoon:
* George Saunders’s commencement address, delivered at Syracuse earlier this summer.
* Edward Wong’s account of raising his child in polluted Beijing.
* This essay, published in May, arguing that Japan did not surrender to the Allies because of the nuclear bomb.
* A profile of my employer.
* Ariel Levy recreates the Steubenville case for The New Yorker this week.
* An Alabama coal baron is sued in connection to the killings of union leaders at one of his mines in Colombia.
* Teleportation is impossible, even if you only wanted to beam up your brain.
Until we meet again.
