• This week, we got to hear Bill Clinton wax poetic about his long romance with the Democratic nominee, straining eyebrows across the nation.

• Today in culture schlock: everything old is . . . nope, still old.

• This morning, Eugenia Williamson brought us news of Pooper, the latest app designed to rub our noses in the reality of the “sharing economy.” If that post left you bereft of sympathy for the idly rich, know that the one percent are having a pretty tough week, what with the closing of the Four Seasons restaurant.
