Good Saturday morning. We once again have (unusually) glorious weather here in the NorthEast, so don’t expect me to be any where near a computer all day. No worries, though — here is my list of the longer form reading I have collected this week to keep you occupied:

• What Paintbrush Makers Know About How to Beat China (NYT) see also Portrait of the Artist as a Caveman (New Atlantis)
