— A writer from The Atlantic goes after the Clinic's semi-obsessive health initiatives for employees. Scene's owners have a slightly less strict batch of guidelines. (Crain's)

— It's brother vs. brother for mayor of a small Ohio town. Campaign literature surely includes who gave who wedgies and whether either of them stole loose change from their mom's purse. (
