Stuff I found interesting and thought I'd share.
- Why Japan really lost WWII
- Why the NHL is better than the NBA
- Marine General speaks from broken heart at memorial's dedication.
- Excellent long read of Muhammad Ali's biggest fan finally getting to meet him. Cool anecdotes of Ali in private.
- David Simon (creator of The Wire) on the NSA tracking Verizon call records. He makes some very good points which I agree with but I think misses the forest through the trees. I may post my thoughts on this at a later time.
- Cool story of 19 families that moved to a then uninhabited North Carolina island in the 70's.
- If D-Day failed Eisenhower was going to take full responsibility. When it succeeded he deflected the credit. Sounds like the polar opposite of today's leaders.
