Three Good Reads
The Washington Post magazine chronicles a sad situation that wouldn't be necessary if this wealthy nation had its act together on health care. New York magazine takes an appropriately skeptical look at the writer and contrarian guru Malcolm Gladwell. And the newish Conde Nast business magazine Portfolio finds just the right writer to narrate the forces behind the meltdown on Wall Street. As a bonus, we bring you this brilliant Vanity Fair look at how the New York Times has heroically persisted in its Iraq war coverage even in the face of the public's general indifference.
