The Best Papers I have Read of Late

Because we spend so much of our time reading dreck (helping our students develop their ideas in written form that is ready for consumption by human beings, and reviewing submitted “articles” that have not yet achieved that standard) I thought I’d take a moment to share a handful of papers I have read over the past year that I really enjoyed.  Whether these land in the APSRIOAJPS, or elsewhere is immaterial.  You will both enjoy and learn from these papers.
