Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

On occasional Fridays, I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

a. Regardless of how you feel about the outcome of this week’s U.S. Presidential election, Thomas Mallon’s fictional take on 2016 in The New Yorker is, hand’s down, the best thing I’ve read about this electoral season.

b. Also on the election, The Financial Times had a superb piece on how to re-visualize the U.S. electoral map, while the New York Times had a fantastic rendering of what swing states look like from space.

c. For all my expat friends out there, here’s a great piece from Global Geneva on what it’s like to be a trailing spouse.

d. And while we’re on the subject of marriage, Bloomberg explores the economics of dining as a couple. Personally? I favor autarky.

e. Finally, I thought I’d end with 15 brutally honest illustrations that sum up adulthood. This week, #9 about how long it really takes to get to Friday, has particular resonance.


And on that note, Happy Friday! Have a great weekend…
