There Is No Right Way to Have a Baby

nymag.com — I love a good birthing yarn. Sure, most happy labor narratives have the same general shape (they begin with contractions; they end with a baby), but the emotional and physical details are so particular. I want to know how you felt in the third hour of pushing.

Lessons of Immortality and Mortality From My Father, Carl Sagan

You Can Call a Man Fat But You Can’t Fat-Shame Him

Goldman Sachs CEO’s Sense of Childlike Wonder -- Daily Intelligencer

nymag.com — You'd think five years of being protested, vilified, burned in effigy, berated by Congress, and compared to blood-sucking cephalopods would break a man. That being called to court to testify not once but twice in civil trials against corrupt managers at the firm he oversees might rob him of whatever shred of joie de vivre he had left.
