Why We’re Not Photographing the Foo Fighters

washingtoncitypaper.com — Foo Fighters are back in town this weekend for a huge 20th anniversary blowout at RFK. We had planned on running photos from the show-which promises to be part homecoming, part Fourth of July party-but the band's contract, to be blunt, sucks.

Harper Lee’s ‘Go Set a Watchman’ May Have Been Found Earlier Than Thought

nytimes.com — On the eve of the most anticipated publishing event in years - the release of Harper Lee's novel "Go Set a Watchman" - there is yet another strange twist to the tale of how the book made its way to publication, a development that further clouds the story of serendipitous discovery that generated both excitement and skepticism in February.

3 reasons the American Revolution was a mistake

vox.com — This July 4th, I'm celebrating by taking a plane from the US to the United Kingdom. The timing wasn't intentional, but I embrace the symbolism. American independence in 1776 was a monumental mistake. We should be mourning the fact that we left the United Kingdom, not celebrating.
