A Better Way to Look at Most Every Political Issue

quote [ Americans would be less alienated from one another and solve problems more easily if they recognized one little-noticed distinction in policy debates. ]

This is intentionally tagged as People instead of Politics, since it's more about framing and better communication than about any particular issue or position.

Bettie Page is still the rage with her legs and leather

An Urban Legend Is Born

quote [ It?s an incredible story. But did it actually happen?

In 1996 in Niagara, a tornado tore through a drive-in theater, ripping apart the movie screen?just as it played the scene in Twister in which a tornado demolishes a drive-in movie theater. ?It seemed like the screen was coming alive,? remembers one witness. Another: ?We?re watching Twister, and my god, we had a twister!?

It?s an incredible story, as its many "witnesses" will readily attest. But did it actually happen? Jay Cheel?s short documentary Twisted investigates this Canadian urban legend, revealing the fallibility of memory, the subjectivity of truth, and the enduring power of human storytelling. ]

Remember that crazy thing that happened, that time?

Post-work: the radical idea of a world without jobs

quote [ Work is badly distributed. People have too much, or too little, or both in the same month. And away from our unpredictable, all-consuming workplaces, vital human activities are increasingly neglected. Workers lack the time or energy to raise children attentively, or to look after elderly relations. ?The crisis of work is also a crisis of home,? declared the social theorists Helen Hester and Nick Srnicek in a paper last year. This neglect will only get worse as the population grows and ages. ]

There's a lot of jewels in this article. From discussing how society might be reshaped, to pointing out that we're already in a post-work society, but a dystopic one. It's quite the read.
