  • This is an entertaining, enlightening, and sad take on some of the Israeli West Bank settlers, whom, it’s worth remembering, are violating international law by living there
  • Another shot in the Africa Rising debate. I don’t know the author, so take at a grain of salt, but interesting perspective and smart questions asked. Now that I’ve been in Uganda for a bit, I understand the line “If you see a man driving in a straight line you know he must be drunk”
  • An insert to Dave Eggers’s You Shall Know Our Velocity! completely changes the novel
  • Aziz Ansari is way more curious than I thought.

  • The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food” – thought this was an interesting read
