This week was derailed by my husband having a root canal done (and handling it better than really anyone has a right to, I think, though I am very grateful that he’s doing so well), and so in lieu of a second post (which let’s be honest would probably still have been about potage, as I made a triple batch yesterday in order to get us through Soft Diet Only week), here is a small collection of links. Small, but all of the highest caliber.
THINGS TO THINK ABOUT
Hank Green with a brilliant and scathing analysis of how and why the mainstream media has lost millenials.
An outline of seven steps towards achieving financial stability despite a variable income.
A retired Army general in favor of making a year of service more available, if not straight-up mandatory? Yes please.
A brief reflection on suffering and death, or, why we don’t euthanize people.
An article that summarizes key differences between Christianity and Islam, with the aim of arguing that the latter is more violent than the former. On the one hand, it’s a nice narrative; on the other, I feel sure there are some gaps, but don’t know enough to say one way or another.
An excellent breakdown of allegedly gendered things you can do and still be a feminist.
THINGS TO ENJOY
My friend Katherine has turned her blog into a let’s-make-period-recipes-as-close-to-the-original-as-possible blog, and it looks like it should be a lot of fun.
A helpful illustrated guide of 27 things you should never do to a baby.
See y’all next week!
