Iserotope Extras - Issue #46

The Highlighter
Sunday morning’s attack on gay people in Orlando has left me stuck. Most people don’t seem to want to talk about it. Maybe this is because we’re grieving, or we’re numb, or we don’t know what to say. Very little good writing has emerged so far. This week’s first piece, “The Courage of Being Queer,” is a good start. Also highlighted this week is Nikole Hannah-Jones’s latest piece on school re-segregation. It’s excellent. After a photo of a soccer field, consider how our identity is changing as we outsource our memories to electronic devices, then try to take in, if you can stomach it, yet another story of police brutality and gun violence.
