What I’m Reading – Dec 4, 2015

In an effort to blog more, I now introduce what I may completely forget about or otherwise adopt as a regular post on my blog, the What I’m Reading post. I am lucky enough to call many, many intelligent, informed people my friends and they share great articles with me. Here are some from this week:

How Mark Zuckerberg’s Altruism Helps Himself – Andrew Ross Sorkin, NYTimes

Bob Ross’s Strange Afterlife – NYTimes

 An interesting, if a bit over the top, article on how to handle an active shooter situation from The Art of Manliness in light of the San Bernardino shooting.
