Loose Articles

I've shamefully neglected my literary endeavors over the past year. It's been months since I've been in our library. In fact, the last time I was there I held a book out at least three weeks past its due date. I'm sure the library insincerely thanks me for my small monetary donation.

Well anyway, Kottke.org schooled me today with a post telling me that The Atlantic Monthly was now available for free online. Once I started reading articles, it became a day long pursuit in between tasks at work. When I checked the mail at home, the latest issue of Smithsonian magazine had arrived. I barely noticed the nice dinner Matt made as I read each article, fingers becoming stained with ink from the front cover. Here's a selection of articles I devoured today and realized just how little I know and how much more I could know:

The $1.4 Trillion Question: What Do We Owe China?

After Iraq: A report from the new Middle East—and a glimpse of its possible future

The Truth About Jena: Why the media got it wrong
