The internet has been liking our “Speedup” essay about how Americans are being squeezed at work—no wonder, given that many of you probably read the piece sitting at a stoplight, on the phone to your boss, while firing off a couple of emails. “I haven’t felt as ‘hell yeah’ about an article in a while,” tweeted one reader. But this reaction, from the Washington Post's Ezra Klein, was probably our favorite.
"Here’s the rock and hard place with a double-edged sword." (best. mixed metaphor. ever.)
"Rwanda didn’t have anything the international corporations needed. Libya has oil."
There’s also stuff about mind-control experiments, infecting people with syphilis, testing penicillin, WikiLeaks, having a new revolution (“Vote for anyone but Democrats and Republicans”), 16 million secret documents in 2010, and more. Crazy like a fox, or crazy crazy? You decide.
