Or why I have been trying to write this newsletter for weeks
Or why none of the things we hope might work is likely to convince people to change their mind
Or why public intellectualism is alive and well ... but might be on YouTube?
Or why you will almost never "find me in da club"
Or what happens when we assume we are the main character
Or how sometimes all those open tabs are like the abundance of a late summer harvest
Or why individual freedoms require an eye toward the collective good
Or why I just can't quit my newspaper habit
Or how this appliance commercial reveals the lies of modern America
or why scarcity is almost always a lie
or why the alarm clock goes off at 6 now
Or why we have to decide what we want if we're ever going to figure out how to get there
