Reading Roundup (Thursday edition)

Got through a few mags after watching Barca crush Womanchester United, just like I said they would. (Kneel before Zod.) In Sports Illustrated, a brief about The Fridge facing some health compications, Rudy Giuliani's spoiled-brat of an evil-seed son was (rightfully) likened the Carl Spackler (of Caddyshack) for his approach to suing Duke after he got kicked off the golf team (Spackler exempted, more evil people in one phrase than I ever thought possible), Selena Roberts on the near-extinction of college tennis and this little Sign of the Apocalypse ditty:
During a Mets game a plumber had to be called to Citi Field to free a woman whose arm got stuck in a toilet when she tried to retrieve a lost gold tooth.

The New Yorker has a piece about how costlier health care is often worse health care. And Men's Health (for whom I just finished the first draft of my story that will appear in the November issue), has Danica Patrick looking f.i.n.e. on a dusty old road (shame the f.i.n.e. photo ain't online), but says some u.n.f.i.n.e. things about Philly. Namely, that we're only behind Jacksonville, Fla. in its "Capitals of Cancer" rankings.
Not awesome.
