Reader staffers share stories that fascinate, amuse, or inspire us.

Hey, did you read:

• Georgetown law professor David Cole's succinct analysis of what's at stake in the Supreme Court's reconsideration of the 1965 Voting Rights Act? Kate Schmidt

• That incarceration rates fell sharply for blacks from 2000 through 2009 while they rose for whites and Hispanics? (The incarceration rate for black men is still more than six times that of white men.) Steve Bogira

• About Brooklyn's unorthodox Hasidim? (One might say they're not on the fringes anymore.) Tony Adler

• About the seized "marijuana cannon" in Mexicali? (The article doesn't say if you can smoke out of it.) Ben Sachs

• That maybe Budweiser isn't watered down after all, which means it's just deceptively devoid of flavor? Gwynedd Stuart

• Foppish dandy Bryan Ferry recounting records that have been meaningful to him (and coercing his interviewer into watching Prince YouTube videos with him)? Tal Rosenberg

• That like the Blackhawks, the White Sox are still undefeated in regulation? Steve Bogira
