I appreciate you
, Loyal Readers, for sending me tons of birthday wishes! This week’s issue of The Highlighter begins with an extraordinary article on climate change — and how we once had the chance to stop it. If you’re not in the mood for doom and gloom, check out a crime thriller involving McDonald’s, the Mafia
, and a man named “Uncle Jerry.” Or consider the benefits of backpacking, camping, and taking walks in the park. Finally, be sure to leave time for the last article, which centers on Russia’s denial of HIV and the consequences that follow. Thank you!
