Rowan Jacobsen | Outside | 19 September 2011

The poacher shot the rhino dead. Lopped off her horn. And fled. But forest
  guards were onto him. And "unlike most guards in most parks in India, they
  were armed. And they had license to kill." Welcome to the future of
  conservation [8]Comments

He may be "a blowhard, the promulgator in indigestible prose of theories
  both empty and obscure". Or "the critic of the age". Still, he has given us
  "more than 50 years of brilliance, boldness, bombast, bathos, and bullshit"

Emily Badger | Atlantic Cities | 19 September 2011

Safest cities in America are the ones incorporated before 1930, when streets
  were laid out in grids. Fashion and regulation shifted then to favouring
  winding streets and cul-de-sacs. Which turn out to be inefficient and
  dangerous [14]Comments

Anonymous | Telegraph | 19 September 2011

Lovely, anecdote-filled tribute to great character of British horseracing.
