From Meg McReynolds, and it's both impressive and appreciated: How Christian Siriano turned his fashion house into a mask factory.

From Wally, and it's an interesting read: How China Turns Trash Into Wealth. This is fascinating: The Punch-Out Speedrunning Community Spent Five Years Trying To Beat One Player And All His Records. This is quite an incredible story: Historian and family live in groovy 1965 bubble and do the time warp, again. Well, this is is a nice idea: David Hockney shares exclusive art from Normandy, as 'a respite from the news'.

A national treasure: What If Everyone Had Their Own Larry David? An excellent read: How computational power—or its absence—shaped World War naval battles. Oops! The U.S. Navy's Big Beautiful New Carrier Has Hilariously Messed Up Toilets. Also excellent: The Seminal Novel About the 1918 Flu Pandemic Was Written by a Texan. This is a very good idea: How to Help Librarians and Archivists From Your Living Room. So kind: Socially distanced street parade greets US teenager after cancer treatment. Good grief: Doctors hoard unproven COVID-19 meds by writing prescriptions for selves, families.
