Hopefully if you’re reading this at all you’re doing it from your couch or maybe at the airport on your way someplace nice for Christmas. Either way, here’s your abridged reading material for the day.
1. Crash Landing
If you paid any attention to the internet at all over the weekend you know the story of Justine Sacco, previously a big-shot PR executive but a relative nobody in social media circles.

4. Best Medicine

Have a great day, folks.
