Instead of our usual original article, we have decided to use this issue to make two appeals, one financial and one editorial, which you can read below. We also strongly recommend that you read the sidebar in which we summarize articles published elsewhere that we believe are “Worth Reading.” The most important events of the past two weeks have been discussed widely and capably by commentators whom we read and respect. As a result, none of us has found a better way to explain, summarize or refute their points. Instead of making an unsuccessful try, we decide to curate those articles and recommend the five we found most interesting and thought-provoking. We will be back in two weeks, as opinionated as ever.
