I loved where the Stark sisters ended up. (I do agree the choice of Bran for the IT was odd.) But he seems like he’s comfortable with delegating affairs to Tyrion &Co, so it genuinely felt like things were going to work out. I also loved Brienne becoming head of the Kings guard.

One of the best things to have happened to me recently at NYT is becoming deskmates with the inestimable , who has not only taught me a lot about Science, but also American society and history. Like this. You must read this.

Cloud Peak Energy, one of the largest coal mining firms in the country, told reporters they have "never fought climate change" or funded anyone who does. Last week the firm went bankrupt. Internal records in the court files we obtained show otherwise.

I’d be surprised if there isn’t one that announces “To-suto ga yakiagari mashita” and warns “Atsuinode okiwotsuke kudasai”

The story could have mentioned that wheat consumption actually overtook rice consumption in Japan quite a few years ago.

There's nothing more enchanting than the perfect slice of toast, says Kaori Kajita, founder of the Japan Butter Toast Association, which sounds half-baked but actually exists. “You can't help but be elated.”

Oh my god. Tragic news about Eric Talmadge, AP's N.Korea bureau chief, a legendary Asia hand. We were in Tokyo together and his Japanese was so good, he'd call into the bureau from a far-flung assignment and I'd think it was a gruff Japanese source calling
