GOOD READS: murder, lottery winners and the girl who feels no pain

Posted By on Fri, Nov 30, 2012 at 4:07 PM

Sometimes you read something and you just can't forget it. Welcome to the inaugural edition of our brand-new GOOD READS blog. Each week, Inlander staffers will share five-ish of our favorite stories in hopes you'll love them too. Funny, sad, important, absurd. You'll find a little bit of everything. Use them to speed up your Friday afternoon, or bookmark them for your morning coffee over the weekend. Then, tell us what you think. Loved a story? Hated it? Read anything great lately?

1. "The Innocent Man: Part 1 + Part 2" (Pamela Colloff//Texas Monthly)

The portrait of a man who served 25 years for a murder he didn't commit and how the justice system failed him.

2. "The Expendables" (William Langewiesche//Vanity Fair)

A look of the French Foreign Legion and its fight against gold miners in French Guiana.

3. "Rich Man, Poor Man" (April Witt//Washington Post)

4. "Painless" (Justin Heckert//New York Times Magazine)

5. "The Lying Disease" (Cienna Madrid//The Stranger)
