"It’s 1963 Again"

What do Liberals want? A huge part of it is in this short piece. They want--profoundly, desperately--for it to be 50 years ago. The Birmingham church bombing. The March on Washington. The 1964 Civil Rights Act. When they were young--so young--and so noble and fighting that really, really good fight.

"The secret of New York City’s mythic bagel-making water"

Apparently, it's all about the calcium and magnesium.

"Kelly Slater, Ageless Wonder"

"Watch the 11-time world champion pull off a near-impossible surfing move."

"Good Girl" with Carrie Underwood and featuring the PS22 chorus

The kids seem to be having a really good time.

"Research shows dogs are much smarter than we think"

I don't know who "we" is. Most dog-owners I know think dogs are plenty smart.

"5 reasons why it's great to work at Whole Foods"

The nicest, by far, retail employees I deal with on a regular basis are those at Whole Foods. I wonder how they do it. This article advances some reasons.

(Whole Foods has been on Fortune's "Best Companies" list for seventeen years.)
