Round-up of good stuff I’ve read over the past week:

The Unintended Consequences of Foreign Aid: Theodore Dalrymple explains how Western policies have poisoned the water supplies of 70 million in Bangladesh

The Music Man – long NY Times profile of Rick Rubin in his new role as head of Columbia.

Rereading Vietnam – an article on some of the unsung heroes of Vietnam, explored through some of the books written about the war. (h/t Villainous Company)

If you read nothing else this week, make time for this. And if you don’t have time now, bookmark it and come back to it when you do have a free moment. You owe yourself that much. Last week I remarked that names like Bud Day, Leo Thorseness, and Jeremiah Denton ought to be household words, but aren’t.
