Melania’s plagiarized speech, Ted Cruz’s prime time refusal to endorse Trump, Mike Pence’s well-received speech...some pros and cons from the GOP Convention. Also from Cleveland, a report on the spectacle and theater around the convention. For the week’s web overview, why tech billionaire Peter Thiel wants Trump to be president and how effective Twitter and Facebook are at tackling trolls and gun sales on their platforms. Then advice columnist Heather Havrilesky talks about her new book, “How to Be a Person in the World,” and some of the most interesting letters she’s responded to over the years. And a look at what Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese have to do with a federal lawsuit to take back lavish Los Angeles properties allegedly purchased with money stolen from a public investment fund in Malaysia.
