I love a thoughtful link roundup as a way to discover the fantastic writing others are reading and sharing online. Here are my good reads from the week that was.
Lunchables were strictly prohibited in our house as kids (along with: Fruit Roll-Ups, Ding Dongs and other lunch staples my mom saw unfit for consumption by humans…) so I’ve never actually eaten one. Still, this Lunchables Power Ranking is pretty great.
“This has become something of a habit for Fiorina, who has a notable facility for delivering answers that thrill conservatives but fall apart under close examination.” A great piece by Vox about who won the CNN Republican Debate.
Austin and I aren’t religious people, but we often have conversations about the utility and deep appeal of religion — a built-in community, beautiful traditions and the ability to seek comfort outside of one’s own rational assessments, to name a few benefits. This piece about St. Lydia’s, a microchurch in Brooklyn, really resonated with me.
