Hey, did you read:

• That the FBI spied on Sartre and Camus—particularly after it was revealed that Sartre was a member of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee along with Lee Harvey Oswald? ("Hoover needed to know if Existentialism and Absurdism were some kind of front for Communism.") Kate Schmidt

• Scientists have found a way to keep condoms from impeding pleasure—and it's BEEF? Sam Worley

• That there is now an online video game based on the Sandy Hook school shootings? Mick Dumke

• This essay Zadie Smith wrote about corpses? Drew Hunt

• About David Raether, who at one point made $300,000 a year writing for Roseanne yet ended up homeless? Tal Rosenberg

• That NPR described Ernie Banks—aka Mr. Cub—as a former player for the White Sox? Mick Dumke

• That the 16th-ranked Northern Illinois Huskies will try to extend their 10-0 record tonight in Toledo? (The end zones will be trampled: the Huskies score 45 points a game, Toledo averages 35, and the last time they met in Toledo, NIU won 63-60.) Steve Bogira
