A New Weekly Feature: Fix Picks
Welcome to a new feature on The Fix where we try to highlight an article or two that might not have made your reading list, but should. At least once a week, we'll draw your attention to reading material that sheds some light on this crazy political process we attempt to document.
We call it "Fix Picks" and here's your first installment.
Two of the New Yorker's recent pieces caught our eye.
The first is a brief item in this week's issue penned by the magazine's editor, David Remnick. We've gushed about Remnick's 2004 profile of former Vice President Al Gore. It is the best window into Gore's psyche we've ever read. Remnick revisits the subject through the lens of campaign 2008.
The second is a longer treatment of Domino's Pizza founder Tom Monaghan and his life's work to found Ave Maria, a town and Catholic university in Florida. Monaghan is one of the main backers -- financial and otherwise -- of Sen. Sam Brownback's presidential campaign. The piece contains only a passing mention of Brownback, but provides a glimpse into the world that the Kansas senator hopes to stir in his bid for president.
