Mike Selvey | Guardian | 1 April 2011

Generous tribute to record-breaking Sri Lankan cricketer shortly to retire.
  Extraordinary physical characteristics allowed him to bowl off-spin with a
  wrist spinner's action. A truly great sportsman and a decent, indefatigable
  man [2]Comments

Anonymous | Der Spiegel | 1 April 2011

Anonymous | Smoking Gun | 1 April 2011

18-page contract from 1990s specifying equipment and facilities to be

Maximillian Potter | Vanity Fair | 1 April 2011

Extortionist threatens to poison the vines of La Romanée-Conti, tiny
  vineyard producing France's most revered and expensive Burgundy, unless he's

Henry Kissinger | NYT | 31 March 2011

Pretty much the perfect match of subject and reviewer. So lapidary that
  every sentence gleams. Among them: "Cynicism by itself produces a shallow
  opportunism. Any serious policy requires a fixed point from which to alter
  the world" [10]Comments
