That’s my house in the distance. In a few weeks, we’re going to get some new siding on the place.
Gotta busy day ahead of me — a running date at the park, a trip to the Post Office to mail books that sold over the weekend, and then three hours of writing/research at the public library. I have to shepherd Ian to the high school in the afternoon for more testing and to the math tutoring center at 5:00, while Steve supervises the installation the set-up of a better Internet system and does his work thing. Good thing there are leftovers in the fridge!
With the 15 minutes that I have for the blog this morning, let me throw down some links. I hope to be back here in the evening.
Here are a sample of the newsletters in my email box this morning: Slow Boring (Yglesias), Letters from an American (Richardson), Persuasion (Mounk), and The Ann Friedman Weekly. And here’s a shoutout to a great newsletter from Anne Helen Peterson “Other Countries have Social Safety Nets. The U. S. Has Women.”
The clothes from The Queen’s Gambit.
Totally interesting podcast, which includes an interview with AOC, about whether moderate Democrats should broaden their impact by reaching out to the progressive wing of the party or by bringing back the working-class voters who have voted for Trump.
