Here are some stories that seemed to resonate this year.
“Ahmad Khan Rahami Blew Up My Block” — a scene from inside the Chelsea bombing.
“Get Off the Internet” — skis, snowmobiles, dead animals and guns. Just another winter in Vermont.
“This Man Has A Winning Attitude” — the differences in how a homeless man and an underpaid young person see the world.
“Why I Missed Frank Ocean’s Album” — some weepy shit about how walking around aimlessly might actually be more fun than listening to the biggest album of the year.
“The Godfather is Terrible. Here’s Why That’s Okay” — things you can learn from author Mario Puzo’s persistence in publishing a shit book.
