Goldkicks isn't as vapid as one might think. I've taken to reading the Harper's Magazine webpage for their excellent weekly review, which reports that "Physicists speculated that tiny exploding black holes are raining down on the earth", "the largest known prime number was discovered" and "in Albany, New York, a hair stylist's hair burst into flame while she was standing next to a gas pump."

There's also an excellent article by Thomas Frank (of the Baffler) on Social Insurance fuckery by the private sector that's interesting even if you don't happen to live in New Jerusalem, or whatever they're calling that nation to the north of Mexico now.
