Neither the circle without the line, nor the line without the point, can be artificially produced.

Part of me always felt like the other, the outsider, the observer. My father had two sons with his second wife, who I didn’t meet until my late 20s. I was always on the periphery.

Elif Safak
One of the things we try to do on ‘The Fosters’ is shine a light on the problems and the people that get pushed to the periphery. From the very beginning of the show, when we told people we were putting foster care at the center of a TV show, even the people who work in the system were afraid.

I’m a pessimist about the euro, but not about Europe. So the southern periphery, Spain, Italy, Greece, leave – Italy might be the first to go – and the rest stay. That will work just fine. But unless they want to give up democracy, I don’t see greater fiscal union as the answer.
Tyler Cowen
