New today from the Century

The joy of stuff, by MaryAnn McKibben Dana. KonMari approaches clutter by asking just one question: "Does this item spark joy?" But this isn't always a simple question.

Overstuffed barns, by Peter W. Marty. A poor person looking up at my residence could mistake it for one of the barns belonging to the rich man Jesus talked about—the one who didn't know his soul was buried beneath all that corn and sorghum.

Cleveland Sellers, 48 years after the Orangeburg Massacre, by Gary G. Yerkey. A bipartisan group of some two dozen members of Congress will travel to Orangeburg, South Carolina, this weekend to pay tribute to those who were killed and injured by state law enforcement officers during a civil rights demonstration there 48 years ago.

The danger of the crowd, by Emily C. Heath. I’m not even sure who we were supposed to be killing or hating. No one ever told us. But it didn’t matter; we cheered back anyway.
