: Loyal reader Phillip
, a big fan of donuts and the newsletter, expressed his dismay about last week’s lead article
: “I was ready to like the donut article, having spent my first seven years teaching in LA! The intro was so inaccurate and stereotypical, it was maddening. I found myself distrustful of the article moving forward and didn’t finish it.” Thank you for the feedback, Phillip — I’ll be sure to include better donut-related articles in the future!
I felt a palpable pain in reading this, imagining how an incredibly intelligent young boy experienced what he did, and grew too weary of it. I disagree with a lot of his beliefs, but can absolutely see how his experiences have colored his own truths. I am not entirely sure (would have to read more about his decisions on the court) if his seat on the Supreme Court has been used to help advance equal rights for all. He seems (based on this article) to have a very defeatist view of our society in general, and I can’t say I blame him for that opinion.
Thank you, Phillip and Kati, for your annotations. Loyal readers, please feel free to keep the conversation going. All you need to do is hit reply and tell me what you think.
