Hey, did you read:

• That President Obama and his allies are planning a public-opinion campaign they hope will counter the NRA? Mick Dumke

• “The Science of Sex Abuse,” by Rachel Aviv, in the New Yorker? (On locking up people indefinitely for crimes they might commit.) Steve Bogira

• That the Sun-Times is rerunning its landmark Mirage Tavern investigation? Tony Adler

• How Richard Ben Cramer snuck 1,500 excised words back into his famous Ted Williams profile? Sam Worley

• About “The Murky History of Foosball“? —John Dunlevy

• What happens when you cast Lindsay Lohan in your movie? (Apparently, you end up naked a month later in a Malibu bedroom.) Tal Rosenberg
