Weekend Reads

“He plans to give away all his wealth, after providing for the college education of his 10-year-old nephew.” From Fortune’s Adam Lashinsky: Apple’s Tim Cook leads different. (I’m guessing some of his other relatives wish he’d lead a little more the same.)

+ Vice Sports Inside the weird, noble world of autograph collectors

+ Rolling Stone’s Janet Reitman tries to figure out why three American kids from the suburbs of Chicago would try to run away to the Islamic state: The Children of ISIS.

+ Erin Keane in Salon: “Woody Allen is a genius. Woody Allen is a predator” — Why Mariel Hemingway’s new revelation matters. (Sadly, Woody tried to turn Manhattan into a biopic.)

+ In The New Yorker, Louis Menand reviews a book that suggests 1995 was the year the future began. (1995 was the year of my last good hair day.)

+ Vanity Fair: The True Story of Pretty Woman’s Original Dark Ending. (It was a feel-good movie about a prostitute and a cutthroat businessman. How much darker can you get?)
