Today’s selection of articles includes:

  1. Obama, daring Congress, acts to overhaul immigration“, by Micheal D. Shear (NY Times).
  2. The U.S. government thinks China could take down the power grid“, by Jamie Crawford (CNN).
  3. The secret life of passwords“, by Ian Urbina (NY Times). An intriguing if perambulatory article, with references to tchotchke and the Stonewall riots.
  4. When three into one equals more“, by Holland Cotter (NY Times). Harvard University reopens the combined Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, and Sackler art museums — the “Harvard Art Museums”. (You’d think that delaying the reopening three years would have given plenty of time to come up with a more inventive name.)
