A son writes in The
New Yorker about a cruise with his father, to explore the sites associated
with The Odyssey. James Somers at The Atlantic laments the end of Google’s
program to digitize all printed books (regardless of copyright status). And if
you’ve ever wondered by online is the way it is, Freddie DeBoer has an answer.
Karen Swallow Prior writes about the word all writers love
and hate – platform. The Guardian showcases a decade of award-winning British
landscape photography. Some cool poetry and articles about poetry. The actor
David Suchet reads the Gospel of Mark at St. Paul’s Cathedral.
And a note on what is my very first NOT good read. If you
haven’t seen the song by Rachel Bloom and friends on “Bill Nye Saves the World,”
then you don’t know just how decadent American culture has become. Nye is the self-proclaimed savior and spokesperson for science, and marched for
science last weekend. I’m embarrassed for him.
