Reading List Jan 21 – 28

Starting a new thing where I share some of the news stories I read in the past week that I thought were interesting or made good points, and that I think other people should read too. I don’t always agree with the conclusions drawn by the pieces, but I wanted to offer them without commentary to allow others to make up their own minds on the articles! (This is also a good exercise in reading the whole article and not just the headline, which I think we’re all frequently guilty of.)
