Happy Thursday, Loyal Subscribers! Thank you for opening Issue #140 of The Highlighter. This week’s issue includes articles on weight loss surgery, lynching, prison practices, and rape. They’re heavy topics, I know — but they’re important, and they center on the sanctity of our bodies, and how they’re fragile. If that’s too much for you, head immediately to the pet photo, then skip down to Anne-otations, where you’ll find plenty of hope.
: It’s time for the Annual Reader Survey
