Hello! It’s Monday! Seems like a good time to try something new, so here are your normal links, but in email form! (Or maybe you’re reading them on the site. Or via RSS. Options!) I’m heading back to work after a quick vacation, so let’s just all cross our fingers that this Monday goes as smoothly as possible. Anyway, we’ll be figuring out this Substack thing together, so please, let me know any issues/questions/thoughts.
To start with what is too often the news of the day, I’m not sure “stun” is the word I’d use here: Back-to-Back Outbreaks of Gun Violence in El Paso and Dayton Stun Country
And in world news: Nuon Chea: Cambodian former Khmer Rouge deputy leader dies
A bit of GOOD news from here in New Hampshire: New Law Expands Free School Breakfast Across N.H.
Good for her for coming forward: Olympic figure skater Ashley Wagner says she was sexually assaulted as a 17-year-old
It’s always interesting to see who the TV critics themselves recognize: 2019 TCA Award Winners Announced
And now for a few longer reads - what used to be in the separate afternoon post. I’m going to try putting them all in one newsletter, and you can ration links throughout the day as works for you.
THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT: Marianne Williamson isn’t funny. She’s scary.
A hard read but very important reporting: The Village Where Every Cop Has Been Convicted of Domestic Violence
On THAT note, enjoy (?) your Monday, and let me know how this format worked for you. (One thing I’ve considered is dividing the links up a bit into various headings but I don’t know if that’s helpful or annoying!)
