Jeremy Harding | LRB | 12 October 2011

US-Mexico border is an artificial line across interlocking ecosystems, under
  pressure from top-heavy consumer lifestyles to the north, congestion of
  poverty in the south. Result? A twilight world of flight, seclusion,
  incarceration [6]Comments

Seymour Hersh | New Yorker | 12 October 2011

Hersh tells how his lawyer helped him break the My Lai story. "I had
  evidence of a major American crime in Vietnam, an interview with the guy
  accused of leading it, and the mainstream media apparently wanted nothing to
  do with it" [8]Comments

Robert Frank | American Interest | 5 October 2011

"One century hence, if a roster of professional economists is asked to
  identify the intellectual father of their discipline, a majority will name
  Charles Darwin." Right now, many would say Adam Smith. So where does Darwin
  fit in? [10]Comments

[11]The Ethics Of Voting

Jason Brennan | The Art Of Theory | 28 September 2011

Provocative essay. Most people "vote with good intentions, but they don’t
  know what they’re doing. They do more harm than good." So one should try to
  vote "well". But what does this mean? Are there morals we should consider?

Steve Almond | Rumpus | 11 October 2011

The protesters "are simply tired of listening to politicians parrot the myth
  that unfettered greed will lead to shared prosperity. Americans do,
  eventually, get fed up when they feel their values and interests are being
  ignored" [14]Comments

David Hill | McSweeney's | 12 October 2011

August. Saratoga Springs, NY. Everyone is having fun, drinking iced tea,
  pretending like it's the old days. At the track, it's the second race. The
  money is down. And a little lesson in betting on horses is coming
