#108: Forever Yesterday
By The Highlighter - Mark Isero • Issue #108 • View online
Welcome to The Highlighter #108! You’re going to like the articles in today’s issue. They run the gamut. There are pieces about the extraordinarily high mortality rate of African American babies, the role poverty and ignorance play in American hate, the impossible quest to understand a harrowing disease, the sacrifices poor people of color make to get health care, and the intricacies of this year’s smash hit. (Also, check out the helpful hourglasses, perfect for planning reading sessions.) Please enjoy!

This Week’s Podcast: After a one-week respite, The Highlighter Podcast was back in full force on Sunday. I got to chat with middle school principal Tim Reidy about last week’s article, “When Should a Child Be Taken From His Parents?” With his background in counseling and his work with special populations in San Francisco, Mr. Reidy knows firsthand the complexities of child protective services and the foster care system. I’m pleased with the enthusiasm that loyal subscribers have shared about the podcast, and I’m hoping it’s another way to bring our community together. Please let me know if you’d like to be on the show. Don’t be scared!
Thank you for reading this week’s issue of The Highlighter! I’m pleased to announce that last week’s issue achieved a big milestone: 100 opens! On the other hand, sadly, my birthday month is almost over. But there is still time to demonstrate your generosity by encouraging a close friend or family member to subscribe to the newsletter. While you think of whom to ask, let’s please welcome new subscribers Ling, Deborah, Todd, Juliana, and Christsna. Readership is picking up! Let me know what you thought of today’s issue (thumbs are below), have a wonderful week, and I’ll see you again next Thursday at 9:10 am.
