- Disruption is Not a Strategy, it’s an Outcome.
- Women and Men Use Cities Very Differently.
- Portland to vote on taxing companies if CEO earns 100 times more than staff. I really think the threshold should be lower than that.
- Why rural voters don’t vote Democratic anymore.
- When will white working-class Trump voters see the scam?
“Had Hillary Clinton won the election, the white working class might have gotten some tangible benefits — a higher minimum wage, overtime pay, paid family and medical leave, more secure health insurance and so on. Trump and the Republicans oppose all that. So what did the white working class actually get? They got the election itself. They got to give a big middle finger to the establishment, to the coastal elites, to immigrants, to feminists, to college students, to popular culture, to political correctness, to every person and impersonal force they see arrayed against them. And that was it.“

- Please Don’t Get Lost In Fiction—People Need You. A reminder to myself and I’m sure many of you. Fiction is great as coping mechanism, but now is a time that calls for action, too.
- Feeling Down? Scientists Say Cooking and Baking Could Help You Feel Better. True for me- if it turns out well.
Things of Note:
I successfully made baked donuts over the weekend – two different kinds, complete with their own glazes/frostings – and now I might be embarking on a love affair with the baked goods. They were delicious and I find myself wanting to try out other flavors and tweak things.
But more than that, I’m counting down the days, because by this time next week the hubs and I will be in Charleston, where resides our adorably squishy nephew (ok and two of my sisters and their boyfriends, and my mom and uncle are also coming down). Baby cuddles are the best and I fully plan on having to fight my mom for some cuddle time. Though Ian has never held a baby before (!!!) so it’ll also be verrry interesting to see how that goes. 😀 Plus, you know, all of the Christmas festivities.
Are you headed anywhere for Christmas?

The article about getting lost in fiction hit pretty close to home. Thanks for sharing that- it’s the kind of nudge I needed!
It did for me as well. I’m an escapist reader even at the best of times, so recently… yeah. Glad you found it readworthy!
