Friday Reads: Almost But Not Quite A Romney Roundup

Well, this is the third week I’ve done this and I think now it should be pretty clear to you all that I read the same publications all the time. Suggestions for other things to read are welcome! I encourage you to leave them in the comments.

Some stuff to read over the weekend:

– Pretty much everything in this week’s issue of The New Yorker (the first three are subscription only):

Haunts (New York Magazine): Mark Jacobson writes about old Brooklyn and new Brooklyn and the Barclays Center.

Mitt’s Stake (New York Magazine): More about Mormon Mitt.

What Does City Pigeon Taste Like? (Prevention): Thankfully, my friend Mandy ate pigeon and wrote about it this week so the rest of us didn’t have to.

When We Were “Seventeen”: A History in 47 Covers (The Awl): Obviously. Old magazine covers are my fave.

12 Proposed U.S. States That Didn’t Make the Cut (Mental Floss): Weird American history! (h/t Bailey)

– Q&A: Comix Stars Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware and Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez (Rolling Stone): This is delightful. Totally forgot Dan Clowes had been nominated for an Oscar. (via The Hairpin)

Last Call for College Bars (New York Times): Everyone has read this by now, right? But still…ugh.
