Okay, I’ll admit it, I bought a Harry’s razor partly because I knew it would help pay my former co-blogger’s salary, but mainly because I wanted to elevate my shaving game.

Barack Obama: Man of Leisure. While many Americans are cutting back on their vacation plans or eliminating them altogether, Barack Obama is setting an aspirational example for all of us.

The Presidential Palace and Parliament are gone. Police stations, hotels, churches… the entire civic infrastructure basically vanished in a matter of minutes.
