Weekend reading: Lots to read if it starts raining

Good reads from around the Web.

A late start for me today, after a too-late night at the sort of London wine bar that I fantasized about and at the same time derided when I left the provinces 20+ years ago, and where a friend actually said “Fashion is dead” with a straight face as if it were the 1980s.

The shame. Get thee to a Wetherspoons!

Enjoy the intermittently sunny bank holiday.
