Morning Bites: The Roosevelts, East End Weekend, Great Races, new Zadie Smith Story and More

Maybe the best news we received all weekend: “PBS to Air Ken Burns’s “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History” in 2014.”

Zadie Smith has a new short story in this week’s New Yorker “about the friendship between two girls from Kilburn in North West London.”

A close second in the best news department was the e-mail we received that Karolina Waclawiak went on the Bat Segundo Show.

Letters from New Yorker cartoonists.

Hanging out on the East End.

The greatest Olympic race you may have never heard of.
