Article About Mail Shockingly Good

Here is why the London Review of Books is my absolute favorite periodical going: It can take a topic on which I would guarantee you I have absolutely no interest — in this case, the privatization of postal delivery services in Europe — and turn out a 9000-word piece that is engaging, compelling and makes you feel more informed for having read it. The downside to this is that I have stacks of LRBs lying around the house waiting for me to get to them, but as problems go that is far more preferable than everything else I confront. Do check it out.
