Frequent readers of The Morning News will have noticed that, since last month’s relaunch, we’ve introduced something new into our regular publishing schedule: short columns by a handful of writers, each focused on a single subject over the course of a few installments. Here’s our current rotation:
- In “My Contemporary British TV Detectives,” Rosecrans Baldwin evaluates his favorite crime-solvers of UK extraction.
- Leah Finnegan describes celebrities in unlikely ways in “Portraits by Other Means”—say, by the food they eat, the clothes they wear, or the animals they house.
- “Sound Advice” is Liz Entman Harper’s advice column about the type of advice you find online—from commencement speakers to BFFs to Jesus.
- Sarah Hepola backtracks through a trail of broken hearts in “Crushes on Strangers”—baristas and talk-show hosts, you are being loved on.
- In “Eurozonia,” Mike Deri Smith sends dispatches from a land where the locals fear economic dominoes and resolve new crises on a weekly basis.
- In “Late Night Sports Radio,” Sam Stephenson deciphers the well-formed arguments, the dead air for non-New York sports, and racial divide amongst callers up way past our bedtimes.
Over the coming weeks we’ll be introducing new columns from more writers. As for today, instead of a new feature we’re serving up new installments from our stable of columnists. Lighter snacks to get you through a day when your local temperature threatens to break new records. Keep cool, y’all.
