In part one and part two of this interview series with the great mountaineer Reinhold Mesner, we discussed the commercialization of Mt. Everest, fear and his legacy. Here, the legend opens up about what’s next for him, and about limits - both those perceived in nature and the ones he encountered building his Messner Mountain Museum complex in northern Italy. Our chat occurred last month at Messner’s Firmian mountain museum in Bolzano the week he turned 70. The father of four and ex-politician (he served from 1999 - 2004 as an MEP for Italy’s Green Party) even threw in a comment about Russian Prime Minister and President Vladimir Putin.

Jelani Cobb, The New Yorker
The announcement, last week, of Eric Holder’s departure as Attorney General amid ongoing investigations of police actions in the deaths of Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri, and John Crawford, near Dayton, Ohio, inspired despairing murmurs within the civil-rights community. It also brought Holder’s particular niche in the Obama Administration more clearly into focus.
