10 Thoughts on Friday links

    Regarding the Ms. cover – I see not much has changed since Sept. 1977. Frustrating and sad.

    My mother was the “women’s editor” at our local newspaper (I think it would be the “lifestyles” section in whatever print papers exist now) and when she wasn’t writing features or writing up weddings and engagements she would interview whatever famous person was in town. She interviewed Timothy Leary in the late 60s and to this day detests him. She said he was the most difficult interview she ever had because he wouldn’t answer questions directly, and often not at all. I have a photo of her interviewing him surrounded by college students. My mom’s back is to the camera, but I can tell from her posture how irritated she is. Leary is wearing a flower crown.

    Thank you, thank you for the link to the 75 things a non-black person can do. I had already donated to the NAACP, and was searching for black owned businesses in my city, but this article has made the search easier, and given me other ideas and actions.

    The face mask photos are great! Proof that you can be cool AND safe at the same time. And I’m going down the rabbit hole watching every Tina Fey clip and sending them to my girls. Well, off to take a 38th Anniversary “Ride around the neighborhood in the car” trip! Life is an adventure.

      Can you all imagine wearing masks (no matter how breathable and light) in the height of summer heat? Humid NY summers or baking LA summers?

        Replying to Jax: it’s been over 110F many days in Phoenix, already, and doing just fine with masks, thanks! Granted, it’s not a humid place, but I value human life enough that the discomfort is still a worthwhile trade.

    I’ve been following Karin Pfeiff-Boschek’s instagram. Always gorgeous. I also follow her husband’s cooking ‘gram, https://www.instagram.com/bruceboschek/. Fun, extremely civilized couple!
    I loved the ending to the AdRock interview in the New Yorker. The Beastie Boys Story doc is soooo good. Fantastic storytelling from both AdRock and Mike D. Miss Yauch so much.

    Thank you so much for the 75 things.

    The past few days have been so upsetting. I have too much to say about this, the current situation & the history of structural racism in America for a post.

    I do recommend the showtime doc, “Burn Mother F…, Burn”.

    The 75 things is a good one to bookmark––which I’ve done. I scrolled through the list quickly, but didn’t see the new book by Heather Cox Richardson, How The South Won The Civil War. I have not read it (will do so this summer), but have been told by several friends who have that her book is a good historic examination of why and how racism is so prevalent in our country. As frivolous as this sounds with trump’s retweets about the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat, the extreme tragedy in Minneapolis and the endless pandemic––I do hope everyone here has a weekend that brings them some joy somewhere somehow.
