#144: What Happened in Vegas
By Mark Isero • Issue #144 • View online
Loyal Readers, hello and welcome to The Highlighter #144! Don’t tell anyone, but it’s almost summer, when the sun comes out, the days get longer, and reading becomes more expansive. Today’s lead article, about Las Vegas after last October’s mass shooting there, is worth every minute. The other pieces are excellent, too, ranging from the effects of ride-sharing companies, to the inaccessibility of the foster care system, to the joys — and many dangers — of one of our country’s first water parks. Enjoy!
