First Weekend of 2016 Links

Yes, I was rather late with the links.  However, here are some interesting stories for your enjoyment:

Down to the Wire - SB Nation

The Oregon militia standoff, explained - Vox.  Thugs and jackasses, pure and simple.

Smoking Bishop: A Boozy Christmas Drink Brimming With English History - The Salt

Still Ales: What You Need to About the Flat Beer Trend - Bloomberg.  This one doesn't sound like the trend for me

Why the Porter Ranch gas leak could take months to fix - Los Angeles Times

Four elements earn permanent seats on the periodic table - Science News

How 'The Weeping Time' became a lost piece of Georgia history - Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Can a French Friar End the 21st-Century Slave Trade? - Vanity Fair

The Man Who Tried To Redeem the World with Logic - Nautilus
The Long Con - Indianapolis Monthly.  This story is from 2013, but it is part of their "12 Days of Longform" feature, and I love a good Ponzi scheme story.

Our 47 Weirdest Charts from 2015 - Fivethirtyeight

Donald Trump's Strongest Supporters: A Certain Type of Democrat - The Upshot
