Ben Bradlee Washington Post Editor Remembered for Charisma

time.com — Charisma is a word, like thunderstorm or orgasm, which sits pretty flat on the page or the screen compared with the actual experience it tries to name. I don't recall exactly when I first looked it up in the dictionary and read that charisma is a "personal magic of leadership," a "special magnetic charm."

time.com — When you're driving across the country with a stash of marijuana in your trunk, you follow the speed limit. You signal when changing lanes.

How a $600 Banjo Saved My Life

time.com — I stood in the music store beside my then boyfriend, looking up at the banjo on the wall. For $600 I could take this "starter" instrument home and indulge my new obsession with bluegrass.
