Let me recommend this one: “Dirty John.”
Each year, I keep a running list of nonfiction that I encounter as I publish The Best of Journalism, a weekly email newsletter that I curate. This is my annual attempt to bring roughly 100 of those stories to a wider audience. I could not read or note every worthy article published last year (and I’ve disqualified paywalled articles and everything published at The Atlantic––though don’t miss last year’s issues or other bygone gems that await throughout thispublication’s archives.) But all that follows is worthy of wider attention, reflection, and engagement.
Last Thursday I collaborated with a band of awesomeness and the results were fun and exciting. Take a look.
This viral video of Beto O’Rourke is making its rounds. And for good reason. It’s a common sense approach to the manufactured NFL controversy about players taking a knee during the National Anthem.
Beto O’Rourke is running against Ted Cruz for one of Texas’ two Senate seats. Ted Cruz is whiny, failed presidential candidate who carries ultra far right views and is practically taking out his whole failed high school career into every approach he takes on Capitol Hill.
The big quote in the response to a question about NFL players kneeling is:
I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up, or take a knee, for your rights anytime, anywhere, any place.
For me, football is the dumbest sport ever invented. But I admire these guys who are making the president and all of his racist followers squeal at the beginning of each game.
This short documentary looks at Dennis Hope, a Nevada man who has made a living “selling” plots of land on the moon.
Oh, the stable genius and his word salads …
