Happy Thursday, loyal readers! Because of all your support, this newsletter keeps coming out week after week. Today’s issue did not come easily, but I’m happy that I kept looking for pieces worthy of your time and attention. I’m confident you’ll appreciate the lead article
, which offers a different and important perspective of the killing of George Floyd. If you’re an educator, you’ll likely want to dive into (or avoid altogether) the second piece. Then after the fold, in typical Highlighter eclectic fashion, you’ll find a thoughtful article on the meaning of the mustache, followed by a stern warning on the danger of the grapefruit. Please enjoy!
+It’s been since June since we met up, so please join me next Thursday, October 22, for Highlighter Happy Hour #15. We’ll meet 5:30 - 6:30 pm PT on Zoom, connect with other thoughtful members of our reading community, and (maybe) talk about the lead article. Bring a beverage of your choice and participate in general merriment. All you need to do is hit reply and say, “I’m in!” Everyone is welcome and encouraged to swing by.
