#190: Fixer Upper America
By Mark Isero • Issue #190 • View online
Happy Thursday, loyal readers! This week it hit me: There are two types of Americans — those who like to tidy up KonMari style, and those who prefer to adorn their living space with wall signs, spring candles, and pillows with tassels. No matter your leaning, you’ll love this week’s lead article, which explains how a hit TV show transformed a town in Texas — with mixed results (and major ramifications).
But don’t stop there. Take time to learn more about the experiences of women in technology and African Americans in academia. Then dive into some history with an analysis of the Reconstruction Era. There’s something for everyone in today’s issue, so please enjoy! And as always, let your thoughts be known. I’m a quick reply away.
