Your Weekend Reading List

Your Weekend Reading List

Over here on the east coast it's been a warm September, and I just bought a whole box of peaches that turned out to be unpleasantly mushy, so I plan to spend the rest of the weekend eating sorbet.

Brock Turner is out of prison? Oh has it been six months already? Nope. 

Perhaps you (like me) can't feasibly visit the Whalsay Heritage Center's exhibit on the Fair Isle tradition in Whalsey? Well, at least you can read Kate Davies' review and (like me?) pretend that you are totally going to knit a gorgeous Fair Isle sweater on 000 needles. 

I don't know if you guys have heard, but there are a lot of questions about the Clinton Foundation!  if only an investigative journalist somewhere would look into it and get us some answers!

These facts raise legitimate questions. Did donors to the Foundation get special access to the secretary and the department as a result of their donations? If they did get special access, did they receive any favors? Did Hillary or her staff do anything illegal, unethical, or contrary to U.S. interests or administration policy?
The good news is that as a result of these investigations we can now answer those questions pretty definitively: no, no, and no. The bad news is that the press doesn’t seem to want to take “no” for an answer, even if the answer is based on the evidence of its own reporting.  

It's so hard because we all love new clothes.

We're hesitant to add this link because our reading list is already out of control, but here are 5 queer black authors you should be reading.
