A mouse training to become a rat

I often eschew video online because I don't want to watch a whole video sequence just to see the "good bit" everybody's talking about.

With that in mind, I was intrigued by the treatment I found here, where a site called bigthink has chopped up its interview with New Yorker editor David Remnick into multiple, bite-sized chunks with clear content labels. Perfect.

Remnick, btw, is one of my favorite editors, and definitely one of the most quotable. When he was asked about whether he ever thought of becoming an editor while he was a reporter, he said that had always seemed to him like "a mouse training to become a rat."
