Illustration: Cold War Steve The worst place to be in Los Angeles during rush hour is the Sepulveda Pass, where a ten-lane segment of the 405 freeway runs through a mountain range. In 2016, Tesla’s Elon Musk was stuck there one day when he conjured up the idea to “start digging” the 16 or so miles from his Bel Air mansion to the headquarters of his rocket company, SpaceX, in Hawthorne, a small city near LAX. Two years later, dozens of people voluntarily drove themselves to the Sepulveda Pass on a Thursday evening to watch Musk publicly unveil his plan to burrow a tunnel underneath the freeway that would end, in his words, “soul-destroying traffic.” The audience gathered at the Leo Baeck Temple that night, many of them young men wearing hoodies branded with Tesla and SpaceX, saw two empty chairs on a small stage. Between them was a silver stool with a plastic pineapple that housed a snail named Gary , after the SpongeBob SquarePants character, an excavation expert who … [Read more...] about Elon’s Biggest Boondoggle

Emily Miller always wanted her wedding to have a storybook element. For her, that did not mean a ride in a horse-drawn carriage or a gown fit for a princess. It meant a celebration filled with books. She and her husband Alex Seher, 31, a product manager at a lighting manufacturer, had originally planned to marry in the spring of 2021 at a Baltimore library, and give their guests custom bookmarks as favors. But when they decided to postpone their wedding to March 26 because of the pandemic, they learned the library would not reopen in time. They soon booked another venue, the Engineers Club of Baltimore. The club had the “grandeur” of their original location, Ms. Miller, 30, said. But it lacked a key component: books. To make it more bookish, the couple staged what she called an “open book bar” during cocktail hour. Available for their 120 guests to take were copies of 22 fiction and nonfiction titles related to the city of Baltimore, where the couple has lived since … [Read more...] about Looking for a Wedding Favor?
