Curious George: Where did the hippies go? Though we like to talk of 1960s and the hippie movement, what exactly happened to them as the 1970s rolled on? Most people say they "grew up" or "got tired of living in vans", however I find the answer kind of simplistic. Their ideas of unity and brotherhood were formidable, but as the hippie generation grew up we saw only polarization toward money, Cold War politics, the drug war, and Reagan. Is there a book or resource that covers this disconnect?

The only immortality you and I may share It turns out Vladimir Nabokov may have stolen elements of his most famous novel from a 1916 short story in called "Lolita". To make matters worse, the pseudonymous author of the story, Heinz von Lichberg, later became a Nazi journalist. The Nabokov family has rejected claims of plagiarism, but the literary world is abuzz with debate over the muddled distinctions beteen reference, intertextuality, borrowing, and theft.
