Been a long day but I'm feeling very grateful for & good about this new newsletter adventure. So far this week we've covered a lot but it's exactly what I find interesting and worth exploring with you all.

Anyhow, thanks to everyone who has supported this work. I am extremely lucky to be able to try and build out this community (here and on Sidechannel).

this photo dredges up a similar feeling to the beginning of the week & the $750 tax figure. you’re staying at home, not seeing loved ones. making big sacrifices for the greater good. but that’s a *you* thing. *they* do what they want always. it makes you feel like a sucker.

I wrote about the fires and how no amount of empathy or understanding can adequately prepare you for the psychological, physical and sensory trauma of having the world immolate before your eyes

congrats to twitter for fact checking one tweet

what's happening in texas makes me despair for the future. not just how weather events are getting more unpredictable/intense but how it is immediately weaponized into a culture war narrative by the most shameless leaders. if this is the template going fwd we stand no chance
