1) James Traub's essay (NYT) on the roots of the Georgia-Russia conflict. Exceptionally well-written, thoughtful, and honest in its critical approach to both sides.
2) David Gann's essay (New Yorker) on French impostor extraordinaire, Frederic Bourdin, the Chameleon of Nantes. How did this guy end up this way? I blame his mother.
Enjoy your Sunday afternoon, folks.
