While current events are more or less at a standstill, why not look back at history?

 That’s what Slate did with this look at the box office from 1922. 

Also, Craig Calcaterra writes about “Today in Baseball History” while the current season is on pause. 

The Library of Congress is 220 years old this year, and is celebrating online. 

The New Yorker writes about 50 years of Sesame Street! While there are some problems with the article (for instance, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood did not stop in 1975!), the story about the brainstorming session for the show name is brilliant.
