Portrait of the Artist as Postman by Jason Sheeler, Texas Monthly: The magazine is already rolling out another astounding feature — a two-part crime saga — but this is a must read. What starts as a great, surprising profile takes an astounding twist.

The Great Escape by Joshuah Bearman, Wired (from 2007): This is a story that helped inspire/inform the new movie Argo, which is apparently excellent.

Pete Rose by Joe Posnanski, Sports on Earth: A great sportswriter relays a conversation, nay, a speech by Pete Rose. Deep dive into a man’s psyche.

On Jay-Z and the Barclays Center by Hua Hsu, Grantland: With the world preparing for Brooklyn’s basketball debut, this was a great meditation on the meaning of an icon.
