Links of the week… maybe not every week, but this week!

Dave Weinstein | Eichler Network: When Joe Eichler Spoke Out About Race. He made good on his threat to resign from the San Francisco NAHB over their resistance to abolish discriminatory policies.

Gillian Osborne | Boston Review: Herman Melville the Poet. The author of Moby Dick is best known for his novels, but he devoted the second half of his life to writing poetry. What can a new Complete Poems teach us about his place in the canon of American letters?

Chip Heath and Dan Heath | Fast Company: The 10/10/10 Rule For Tough Decisions.

Meghan O’Rourke | The New Yorker: Nancy Drew’s Father. No, not Carson Drew: the fiction factory of Edward Stratemeyer.

| Popular Science: No one told Babe Ruth he had cancer, but his death changed the way we fight it. The Great Bambino’s treatment came at a major turning point in medicine.

Justin Fox | Bloomberg Businessweek: Why America’s New Apartment Buildings All Look the Same. Cheap stick framing has led to a proliferation of blocky, forgettable mid-rises—and more than a few construction fires.
