business news in context, analysis with attitude

If you've never read Roger Angell's baseball pieces in The New Yorker, you should. Angell is a kind of poet laureate for baseball, composing thoughtful and lyrical pieces about the national pastime that have run for years in the magazine (which still, to my mind, is one of the best magazines in the country, and one that has done a good job of adapting to the digital world).

Speaking of adapting, and remaining relevant and active ... Angell may be 93 years old, but he continues to write, and even contributes short blog entries to the magazine's website ... the latest of which you can read here.

Take a minute. It'll be worth it. And then check out his various books and columns, and enjoy this national literary treasure.
