    I thought this was a good one about suicide. In the Western US and among older men

    I've never read it, and only learned who this guy was a few days ago. Never heard of him before.

    Meh.

    Figure I'll give it a read when I have more time.

    After getting part way though the article, I realised I had read it when it first came out. At the time I thought the guy sounded like a hudge entitled douche. Now that I've read it again, I stand by my statement.

    "Bundyville: The Remnant" is going up this week on LongReads this week. This is part 2 of the series and builds on the original (linked in the quote below). Written by Leah Sottile and supported by OPB. https://longreads.com/bundyville/

    I dont know if this has been posted yet, but this is a great read. Afflecks production company started a bidding war for the movie rights and eventually secured them.

    Three that have stuck with me over the years:

    2004ish profile of Chateau Musar vinyard in GQ

    GQ profile of Sean Thackrey and his pig farm winery in Bolinas, CA (also roughly 2004ish)

    A SKI (or SKIING) article about skiing in Russia where the journalist got "attacked" by wild boars.

    Also author George Saunders wrote quite a few great pieces for GQ in the mid oughts (his one on Dubai was particularly entertaining).

    Alas, I have thus far been unable to find most of these archived online...
