Jonathan Coleman remembers boxer Emile Griffith, who died Tuesday, and his final fight with Benny Paret in 1962: http://nyr.kr/18D4hAD
“What I didn’t know, nor could Angus, was that this would be the third—and last—between Griffith and Paret, but not for the usual reason, that three was often the greatest number of times that two fighters would meet each other in the ring when a championship was at stake.”

Google’s insertion of unsolicited ads directly into inboxes is made possible, paradoxically, by its success in otherwise eliminating them. Google has essentially conquered spam, which was once predicted to be the death of e-mail: less than one per cent of all spam in Gmail reaches an inbox. It could not stuff its own ads in the box if it had not already cleared the space.
