What to read this weekend

Homeward Bound: The story of how rescue dogs find their way to Maine and other New England states. This is one of the most heartwarming, and riveting pieces I have read in a long time. Don’t wait — stop everything, and read this.

Bounty Hunting is a dead-end job: And no, it doesn’t pay the bills.

How Sikh drivers are transforming the US trucking business: What a wonderful story, and kudos to Los Angeles Times for picking up on this shift.

The Wild Ride at Babe.net: The website that was the epicenter of the Aziz Ansari controversy is now gone. The story of its failure makes me think of that German word: “Schadenfreude.”

How cars have transformed policing: In turn, they have changed neighborhoods and the relationship between citizens and those who are meant to protect them.

The Genghis Khans of the dairy world: Yup, you read that right.

The tragic job of watching over the last of a species before its extinction: A very poignant and sad story.
