Hoop dreams An exciting first week of the NBA season just makes me wish harder our new arena was getting looked at for a basketball team instead of a hockey franchise. —Brock Radke

I have met the enemy I went to Slate’s homepage recently and browsed about a dozen headlines on things that matter. Then I clicked “How electric eels really kill.” If real journalism dies, now you know who to blame. —Erin Ryan

Oil change Now that it’s cooler out, my once-liquid coconut oil has returned to a solid state, marking summer’s true end. —Kristy Totten
