Quiet down, here are this week’s links:

* GQ’s Jeanne Marie Laskas goes inside the world of double-crossing fake hitman.

* The always-superb Brian Phillips with a great piece on the Dolphins controversy and warrior culture.

* New York Magazine’s Kathryn Schulz on how Twitter hijacked her mind.

* There’s an island that costs less than a Manhattan apartment. Tell me more.

* Someone’s not a fan of bathroom attendants.

* Former NFL stars like Tony Dorsett show signs of CTE. 

* San Francisco transforming into Gotham for a little boy’s Batman Make-a-Wish.

* Why superhero actors aren’t superstars anymore. 

* Slate has a list of the best sandwich from every state. Apparently, I’m doing it wrong because I’ve had neither the NoDak or the SoDak sammies.

* So, um, Toronto (Ontario not South Dakota) needs a new mayor, eh?

* Obnoxious plug alert: If you need something to do tonight, consider tuning into Wisconsin vs. St. John’s on the Big Ten Network on opening night for college hoops. The teams will be squaring off in Sioux Falls at the Sanford Pentagon, a five-sided, $19-million venue with a retro main court.

    Hey guys: Thought I’d throw this one up there (as, you know, an occasional guest blogger)

    William Lietch on locker rooms.

    I haven’t seen anyone tightly summarize the ethics of the Incognito situation, but this guy comes close. I’m looking for a piece on the Incognito situation that doesn’t just point out the evils of it, but to clearly explain why they are evil. This piece comes pretty close.
