These are the stories of people doing difficult but important jobs—jobs that may get much more difficult and much more important in the years ahead.Alexandra Petri writes humorous spins on the news for the Washington Post She spoke to Jacob Brogan about what it’s like to make satire in an increasingly absurd news climate.Then, in a Slate Plus extra, Petri tells us about Emo Kylo Ren, a parody account she made imagining the villain of Star Wars: The Force Awakens as a petulant teenager.
