Don’t panic, people. Everything’s going to be okay. It is Monday. Sorry. But these are The Tapes, our weekly links section that usually runs on Fridays, a nice cap to the week. But it’s been a few weeks since we’ve run them and a series of weekend events has led us to running these at the start of the week instead of the end. So hopefully you still enjoy them, even though you still have five days of work left.

* The New Yorker gets a redesign.

* Chris Jones on what happened on the flight from Dallas to Washington after JFK’s assassination.

* The NBA is likely going to change the format for the Finals, which is currently a 2-3-2. They’ll make it like the rest of the playoffs with 2-2-1-1-1.

* One of the Italian scientists convicted of failing to predict a deadly earthquake, who was sentenced to six years in prison, is still trying to say he shouldn’t be blamed. The nerve, huh? When ever someone complains about the U.S. judicial system, make yourself feel better by reading about the Italian one (this case, Amanda Knox, The Monster of Florence).

* The New Republic originally didn’t like Animal Farm.

* Take the Breaking Bad super quiz.

* Grantland goes on the set with Kenny Powers.

* Yankee fan or no, Mariano Rivera’s final appearance at Yankee Stadium was very cool.
