Reading List: Meet and Bleat Edition

Darlings! Much to read, not enough time to get a coffee and put on liquid eyeliner, which I attempted this morning and smeared over my face and now I’m rummaging around for q-tips and make up remover and my dogs are definitely confused and anyhoo, here’s some stuff to read woooooo!

If you need a pick-me-up this morning, fall in love with Bob Herzog, an anchor from Cincinnati, whose stupidly early morning videos of him getting camera ready are a goddamned delight. And thank all that is good and holy for his colleague Jen.

Courtesy of my Mum in Alberta: Edmonton is hiring a goat co-ordinator to organize 'meet and bleats' (I don’t have any farming background, or I’d be applying for that job faster than you can say “How cold does Edmonton get?”)

I’m still devouring Black Panther think pieces, and I recommend these two delving into whether series namesake T’Challah is actually an enemy, and how Michael B. Jordan’s character Killmonger is like Magneto from X-Men.

RSA, a major security conference, has 20 keynote speakers announced. Only one of them is a woman, and that woman is anti-bullying activist Monica Lewinsky, who has already called RSA out for this. Meanwhile, as Missive favorite Selena Larson points out, CyberScoopNews has a great - and much more balanced - lineup for their CyberTalks.

A letter by a Harvard Medical School researcher to The New England Journal of Medicine states that gun violence drops dramatically (my word, not theirs) during NRA Annual Conventions.

Haven’t read yet, but am going to: The Tyranny of Convenience.

And finally, courtesy of Stefana: The White House chief calligrapher has a higher clearance than Jared Kushner.

Have I told you all lately that I love you?

Smooches,
