Welcome, Loyal Subscribers, to Issue #89! There’s never a dull moment at The Highlighter. This week, as is becoming customary, you get a bit of everything: hiking the Appalachian Trail, the unfortunate return of Rachel Dolezal, the horrors of private prisons, how Americans love perpetual war, and the verisimilitude of Girls. (It’s always a good day when you can sneak in the word verisimilitude.) Plus, I’m pleased to announce that pet photographs are back (by overwhelming popular demand), so please enjoy, and keep those photos coming. Happy reading!
