Mondays, AMIRITE? Sigh.
|Amy Widdowson||Aug 22, 2016|
Happy Monday, poppets. As we ride into this second-to-last week in August 2016 and the week before you can get into any restaurant in the Bay Area, I’m walking the dogs around our new neighborhood, continuing to unpack, and basically doing my best to not be on the internet 24/7. Except to finish "Stranger Things” on Netflix because holy crap that show omg.
What I’m Reading Now on Various New York Media Websites:
New Yorker: The Crotch Grabber. First person take on street harassment and sexual assault deftly weaves the shocking arrogance of a random grope on the street and the victim’s confused shame-anger with sexual assault statistics and anecdotal accounts of similar incidents.
New York Magazine: Did I Kill Gawker? Max Read’s loooooooong take - haven’t finished it - on the history and end of Gawker.com, which shutters this week.
New York Times: U.N. Admits Role in Cholera Epidemic in Haiti. A good time to remind you to read Steven Johnson’s The Ghost Map: The Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic--and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World if you haven't.
More tomorrow darlings,
