By Mark Isero • Issue #167 • View online
Happy Thursday, Loyal Readers! If you like to read because you like to learn, this week’s issue is right up your alley. Build your background knowledge on electric vehicles, leopard seals, legal marijuana, humpback whales, Iraqi immigrants, the Winchester Mystery House, nonbinary identity, bullet trains, how time zones work, and the Antarctic Peninsula, among other topics. There is something for everybody. Go out, discover, and get lost in the joy of reading. (Then find your way again and tell me what you liked.)

+ Reader Annotations: Loyal reader Nancy Jo, who teaches in Oakland, appreciated last week’s lead article and plans to use the piece in her upcoming unit on housing and gentrification. Please let us know how it goes!
After reading “America’s Next Civil War,” loyal reader Jamie wrote, “Time to move to Canada now before they shut their borders!” I have a few friends who are considering the same.
And here’s my favorite testimonial of the week, from loyal reader Becky: “I have subscribed to many newsletters in the past, and this is one of the only ones I always open and read the links from.” Thank you for the ringing endorsement, Becky!
