Here are some of the things that I have found interesting recently.

Horsehead Holding
In spite of some great coverage - even in the New York Times, we lost our bid to participate in Horsehead Holdings post reorganization:

Power Broker & Gang Leader for a day
As I have navigated Horsehead, there are two books that I have been reading and which I have found helpful. 
Gang Leader for a Day: A Rogue Sociologist Takes to the Streets: Sudhir Venkatesh
The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York: Robert A Caro

Hamilton & Lin Manuel Miranda
Lin Manuel Miranda is not just a genius: he’s a wonderful guy. In writing Hamilton I think that he will have single-handedly changed American political culture.
If you do not already know him, here is one of my favorite clips of him - one that shows off both his personality and the strengths of the show.
