  1. I wish there was something witty to say about a sperm whale eating a giant squid. But there isn’t. It’s just awesome.

  2. Michael Pollan’s Botany of Desire is starkly different from his more recent polemic work as it speaks to something far deeper than agricultural policy or corn syrup, which is why I am excited for PBS’s upcoming documentary series of the same name.

  3. Will a flat-out-broke California be the first to brave the untested waters of marijuana legalization? $1.5 billion dollars in potential tax revenue seems all-too-tempting.

  4. Say “eeeeeeeeee.” Olivia Judson discusses the value of lifting the corners of your mouth upon our happiness.

  5. Climate change sucks. But so does most of our limited attempts at regulating carbon dioxide. Will it take massive amounts of behavioral change before we can really start making a difference?
