I Can't Resolve This For You

Dana and I have started a club that's going to assuage the massive sense of guilt I feel when I recycle my unread New Yorker each week.  In our club, the two of us read an article from the New Yorker. Dana picked this week's piece about Judy Clarke, the defense attorney who represented Tsarnaev, the kid who bombed the Boston Marathon.  It's fascinating, and at this moment, I'm taking a break from reading it to tell you about our club.

Another aspect of the club is that we each choose a piece to read independently.  I already know I'm picking the Critic at Large article which addresses Black Silent Majority, Between the World and Me, and Ghettoside, two of which are already on my to-read list.

The last part of the club is that we walk around the lake and discuss the articles we've read.

Pros of the club include more reading of smart material, better use of available resources, concurrent dog walking, and dedicated time with Dana, who is awesome.

Cons of the club are nonexistent.

Please share your thoughts on both articles. Actually, I would also like a synopsis of both articles. Thanks in advance!
