Morning Bites: Anna Politkovskaya murder suspect, Franzen’s op-ed, Lester Bangs, and more

Edward Champion supplies us with what Jonathan Franzen left out of his New York Times op-ed.

  • The Guardian takes a look at ongoing literary feuds and the possible peacemakers.
  • Famed music critic Lester Bangs and late proto-punk legend Peter Laughner singing together.
  • “Sesame Street taught ethnic minorities about civil disobedience; Happy Days had a subtle anti-Vietnam subtext; and the 1980s cop show MacGyver tried to persuade pistol-packing Americans that guns are bad.”  That’s according to a new book by conservative writer and columnist Ben Shapiro.  Via The Atlantic Wire.
