The Atlantic Monthly

The Atlantic Monthly magazine is very generous about posting its articles online, although they now require payment for access to certain current articles. However, by the next month, the articles are free. Also, the paper magazine arrives before it is online, and thus I have to hold off commenting on interesting articles. So here are a few articles I've enjoyed recently:
  • February's cover article, "Oh, Gods!", about new religious movements and those who study them;
  • An essay on the joys of getting up early;
  • A review essay of de-cluttering and housekeeping books. The author is somewhat skeptical of the "anti-clutter movement." "The sneaking suspicion I often get from reading such books is that the real purpose of cleaning out the closets is simply to make room for more stuff."
