Government of South Australia (EM). With time-lapse video, although visuals are hardly the point.
Yahoo News. The Bangor Mall Sears was absolutely the most depressing store I’ve ever been in, with a visibly demoralized staff. So much for the “anchor tenant.”
Econintersect. Big if true.
New York Magazine
Pensions & Investments
Bloomberg. Film at 11.
Sky News. Like FT Weekend’s earlier story on Robbins, this reads more like a beat sweetener than anything else.
Der Spiegel. .
The American Conservative
Middle East Eye
NYT. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality.” —

The Hill. C’mon, Bernie. Who wants that?
South China Morning Post
People’s Archive of Rural India
Regulations.gov. Comments close today.

John Solomon, The Hill
Courthouse News. Details on those confirmed.
WaPo. As opposed to the safe and legal drug war.
The American Journal of Medicine. “At year+4, financial insolvency extended to 38.2%, with several consistent socioeconomic, cancer-related, and clinical characteristics remaining significant predictors of complete asset depletion.” Once the organism is sucked dry, the parasite retracts its mandibles, discards the husk, moves on to the next warm body, and the cycle renews.
USA Today. From January, still germane.
Imperial Collapse Watch
Wolfgang Münchau, FT. Once, it was unusual to see an FT columnist with their hair on fire, at least since the last crisis.
WaPo. Maybe WaPo could rescue some of the copy editors the Times heaved over the side.
