#171: Leaving Barrio 18
By Mark Isero • Issue #171 • View online
Happy Thursday, loyal readers! Today’s issue includes insightful pieces on the horrors of gang life in El Salvador, the absurdities of online life in the United States, the effects of systemic racism on Black people, and the challenges of first-year teachers in Great Britain. If you have time to read just one article, I recommend the second one, “Nothing On This Page Is Real.” It’s brilliant and disturbing, and if you’re still on Facebook (despite its many problems), it might convince you to quit. Please enjoy!
HHH #8 is one week away, and already, 20 loyal readers have bought their free tickets. I look forward to seeing you all there! If you’re a maybe, get over that hump and join us. You’ll like it.
