Hey, did you read:
• About the year of the black quarterback? (For decades, black QBs were “denied the starting positions they deserved”, Samuel G. Freedman writes, but a league-record nine black QBs started for the N.F.L.’s 32 teams some weeks this season.) —Steve Bogira
• This interview with Sandra Bernhard on her role in Martin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy? (“I think everybody knew how prescient the film was even then. It really kind of predicted . . . where we were heading culturally, and how much people would do to garner fame.”) —Drew Hunt
• The confessions of a TSA agent from Chicago who worked at O’Hare? (In addition to slamming the TSA he also accuses “hipsters [of] strumming back-porch Beatles sing-a-longs.” Um, I think those are bros, dude.) —Mara Shalhoup
