Kind of how were feeling
  • Kind of how we're feeling
Each day Reader staffers share stories that fascinate, amuse, or inspire us.

Hey, did you read:

• That billionaires don't need no stinkin' parties? Tony Adler

• About the rise of e-voting around the world? Ben Sachs

• Tom Scocca's dissection of the "narrow, tribal appeal" of Mitt Romney? It is aflame with righteous anger. Sam Worley

This article, written by Ronald Reagan Jr., arguing that if Romney wins, we can expect more lies and misdeeds from both parties in 2016? Jerome Ludwig

• This summary of the election . . . in GIFs? Asher Klein

• About Northwestern University's study of juvenile offenders, whose lives have been tracked now for more than 15 years? Steve Bogira

• That Wired piece last week about the 100 photos chosen to "represent our species and human achievement" for the eyes of any aliens who might happen upon them in billions of years? (The rather austere collection makes it seem as if Lars von Trier played a curatorial role. Anyway, we at the Reader will be choosing our own set of photos for any humans who might happen upon them in a mere seven weeks. Deadline for submissions is November 16.) Mara Shalhoup

• This Anton Ego-worthy account and defense of eating at one of the world's most expensive restaurants? (The chef himself likes bangers and Mickey D's.) Kate Schmidt
