Off topic: National Parks tour, Jesse Owens letter, macaroni and ‘Yankee Doodle,’ Starbucks lawsuit

It’s the National Parks’ 100th anniversary, and Google is offering 360-degree tours and more. Tell him about his father: A letter from Jesse Owens’ German Olympic rival, Luz Long, to Owens during World War II. Exploring the macaroni in “Yankee Doodle” — it’s not the edible kind. And judge throws out lawsuit over the ice in Starbucks iced drinks.

    Hi 🙂 The link that is supposed to be for the Starbucks lawsuit that got thrown out is taking me to the “Tell Him About His Father” article. Can you provide the correct link? Thanks!
