May Link Roundup

Posted on June 1, 2014

Ta-Nehisi Coates pulls off the article of the month (at least) with his The Case for Reparations.

Tom Stafford explains the best way to win an argument and the New Yorker offers another take on why it’s an uphill battle.

I have been raising my eyebrows over Nicholas Wade’s science journalism at the New York Times for a long time, so it’s nice to see him come out with a book that basically confirms my hunch about his biases.

Beth Schwartzapfel has a great piece on prison labour in The American Prospect.

Finally, Paul Ford is hilarious.
