The Washington Post

The best sentences we read today

-- "For more than two decades, Nas’ prolific career has been a hallmark for hip-hop, and now Harvard University has established a fellowship in the lyricist's honor."

-- On Chechen food: "Their staples seem designed for preparation in the context of guerrilla warfare, over a fire in the mountains, using ingredients and tools that are easily pillaged, scavenged or carried on a man’s back.”

-- "An unemployed Londoner, Gonshaw had already served three prison terms on egg-collecting charges."

-- "Sadly, the Hyperloop will never, ever happen. It's a brillant, pie-in-the-sky idea that the realities of politics and construction permits would render all but impossible."
