I stress-anxiety-bought a bunch of new inks and inexpensive pens this week and I am not the least bit sorry.
- Revolution on the Installment Plan This piece from Jessa Crispin about those financial disclosure articles we all love to get judgemental about makes a really good point: the media outlets aren’t that out of touch, they know that outrage will fuel engagement (how many hits did the writer who pissed away a 6 figure advance get on her medium article?).
- Crash Course I found this article about the Boeing 737 Max to be utterly bonkers, but–sadly–not unbelievable. When companies shift from having a safety mindset to a mindset focused on shareholder return, something’s going to give.
- Sady Doyle on the Man Who Insisted His Wife Was a Malevolent Fairy or, a man who was so incensed by his wife’s financial independence and success that he burned her alive while his family looked on. I hope she haunted his ass for the rest of his days.
