Happy Friday! Again. Where does the time go?
I’m still in California, heading home this weekend.
This week I’ve been mostly reading books (including The Braindead Megaphone by George Saunders and Friendship by Emily Gould) and enjoying the last of the sunshine I’ll get this year.
Here are some other interesting reads I found around the internet.

Ferguson has been in the news a lot these past couple of weeks. Reniqua Allen writes, It’s time to admit that America will never really include black America.
Wesley Morris mixes Ferguson commentary and film review in Let’s Be Real on Grantland.
Film journalist Matt Zoller Seitz also takes on the issue, and his formative experience in white privilege in his piece Different Rules Apply.
