This guy has a pretty hard-line view of capitalism.

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

Hey, did you read:

• That four Blackwater security guards have been convicted for a 2007 massacre of civilians in Iraq? John Dunlevy

• About the peace deal in south Sudan? Ben Sachs

• About the grassroots union organizers who are bringing some energy back to Israel's demoralized, ineffectual Left? Tony Adler

Mark Brown on Bruce Rauner's purist take on capitalism—"a free enterprise system with no floor for the weak and no ceiling for the strong"? Steve Bogira

• That rents in Chicago are the highest they've been in three years, but still lower than major coastal cities? Tal Rosenberg

• That conservatives tend to only have conservative Facebook friends, but liberals are more likely to unfriend someone over politics? Mick Dumke
