Hi Loyal Readers! It’s Thursday again, which means another article-packed edition of The Highlighter. Thank you for opening today’s issue. I predict that you will not be disappointed.
After two education-heavy issues in a row, today’s newsletter includes a greater variety of articles, focusing on trends, young people, and the ills of capitalism. This week’s lead article
, which I recommend, explores our infatuation with healing crystals and the harmful effects of the wellness industry. If you’re looking for something more positive, check out the piece on TikTok (I approve of the app) and the double-dose-dog photo. Then it’s back again to two upsetting-but-important articles — the first on college persistence, and the second on vaping. Please enjoy!
+ I’d like your help
to reach 600 subscribers (70 to go) by the end of the year. This newsletter grows one person at a time, from the good word of loyal readers. Because you’re great, you likely know one or two or 17+ other great people who love to read as much as you do. Share The Highlighter with them, encourage them to try it out, and urge them to subscribe
. Thank you, and I’ll let you know next week how many new folks have joined our reading community.
