Hello, dearest fellow travelers. I’ve been compiling a weekly The Good, The Bad, and The Silly for you since August 6 of last year, and most of the time I’ve enjoyed it. I read a lot of articles online each week anyway, so for a long time it was a good way to reflect on the information gleaned therein and write a short summary, then share that information with the world. But lately I’ve been feeling some bad news fatigue. It seems much harder to find good news to help balance out the bad, and the bad is so soul-crushingly bad. I’m still reading up on current events and smart people’s analyses of those events, but for now, I’m not going to compile them in a GBS anymore.
This may change sometime in the near or distant future, and please let me know if the GBS was a regular part of your reading. In the meantime, I will encourage you to add the links under “The Personal is Political” to the right here to your own RSS feed or bookmarks section, and delve into these issues that way.
Leave any links you’ve collected (especially something uplifting! freezing temperatures have returned and we sure need uplifting!) in the comments.
Have a great weekend! See you on Tuesday.
