Reader staffers share stories that fascinate, alarm, amuse, or inspire us.

Hey, did you read:

 • The inspiration behind the Star Wars logo and opening sequence crawl? Sue Kwong

• About how Chinese fonts, which require thousands and thousands of characters, get made? Aimee Levitt

• The Double Door could have a new landlord? Leor Galil

• That Brits have better teeth than Americans? Tony Adler

• About how the Mast brothers duped people into paying ten dollars for a chocolate bar? Tal Rosenberg

• That while we're rightly alarmed about the 30,000 gun-related deaths a year in the U.S., we seem not especially concerned about the 90,000 alcohol-related deaths? (Alcohol also plays a role in a third of all violent crimes, Kelefa Sanneh notes in an essay on Prohibition.) Steve Bogira

• Wendell Berry on erasing Southern U.S. history by censoring art? Deanna Isaacs

• The truth about Dan "Blitz" Bilzerian, the douchey masculine icon who just met with Donald Trump? Ryan Smith
