nytimes.com — NEW DELHI - The Sherpas always go first, edging up the deadly flank of Everest while international clients wait for days in the base camp below. They set off in the dark, before the day's warmth causes the ice to shift.

Covert Inquiry by F.B.I. Rattles 9/11 Tribunals

nytimes.com — WASHINGTON - Two weeks ago, a pair of F.B.I. agents appeared unannounced at the door of a member of the defense team for one of the men accused of plotting the 9/11 terrorist attacks. As a contractor working with the defense team at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, the man was bound by the same confidentiality rules as a lawyer.

‘All God’s Dangers,’ a Forgotten Autobiography

nytimes.com — Nineteen seventy-four was a good year for nonfiction writing in America. Robert A. Caro's monumental biography of Robert Moses, "The Power Broker," came out.

In a Hole, Golf Considers Digging a Wider One

nytimes.com — GREENSBORO, Ga. - Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures - some would say gimmicks - that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game.
