NPS weekend reads, vol. 1 September 6, 2014

Weekend Raspberries I guess?Welcome to the first installment of NPS Weekend Reads. Each Saturday morning we’ll collect a handful of pieces, related to the topics we focus on, that our contributors found engaging during the previous week, very likely while ignoring their day jobs. We’ll err toward longer reads, but always strive to include the unique, thoughtful, and humane of any length, and by authors of (nearly) any stripe. Our hope is simply that you’ll find these pieces interesting too.
