#177: When Best Isn’t Enough 🎓
By Mark Isero • Issue #177 • View online
Happy Thursday! I’m happy to report that our reading community continues to grow. For the second week in a row, last week’s issue was the most popular in Highlighter history. Thank you to new subscribers, old subscribers, and everyone in between!
One reason we’re becoming stronger is that we’re having more dialogue about the articles. If you want to share your thoughts, email me, leave a voice memo, follow The Highlighter Forum, or join our WhatsApp group chat. I’d love to hear from you!
You’re going to enjoy this week’s issue, which includes articles on college surveillance, the #MeToo movement, our racist health care system, and the perils of sunscreen and cauliflower puffs. If you don’t have two hours to read everything, I recommend you peruse “When Being the Valedictorian Isn’t Enough,” which will evoke alternating emotions of anger and despair. (You’re free to have other feelings, too.) Have a great week!
