Hey, did you read:
• That Senator Mark Kirk of “elitist suburban white boy” fame has assembled a crack all-white antigang advisory team composed of Garry McCarthy and a squad of suburban law-enforcement officials? —Kate Schmidt
• Also, Henry Louis Gates Jr.’s remembrance of Bayard Rustin, the chief organizer for the 1963 march on Washington? —Mick Dumke
• About the really great (and, on first glance, offensive) two-part tweets Patton Oswalt posted over the weekend? —Gwynedd Stuart
• That President Obama today will salute the Miami Dolphins, who just won the Super Bowl in 1972? (The Dolphins went undefeated that year, but it was before a White House visit became SOP for sports champions.) —Steve Bogira
