I don't know who needs to hear this, but Singapore has salmon "ATMs".
@randomgeek "Motivational editorializing" is a new genre I wasn't aware of. Do you recommend, so far?
@randomgeek That looks very intriguing. Is it satire? Non-fiction? Fiction? Hard to be sure from the cover! 🤔
I've been struggling to write up notes on my reading this year, but I managed to get one in just before the holidays! My notes on Ibram Kendi's "How To Be An Antiracist":
"But questions of gender are also about how broader perceptions of authority and authenticity are transmitted, and by whom, and what all of this tells us about who we are meant to trust and who we instinctively don’t, often without regard to actual records of truthfulness."
"Being able to see through the obfuscation emanating from dominant channels and crucially, to challenge these misguided narratives, is something candidates must be able to do once in office. Their responses to the Bolivian coup give us some idea of how they would comport themselves if elected."
"His [Sanders'] energy, candor, conviction, and ability to bring people together stand against the current of opportunism, moral compromise, and partisanship which runs rampant on the American political scene. He and a few others like him have the power to restore principle and leadership in Congress and to win back the faith of a voting public weary and wary of political opportunism." -- P. Buttigieg

There used to be a lot more serendipity in my blog reading: I'd get introduced to a new author and read the backlog of posts that they had. Even more interesting if they had changing opinions over time.

It's Community vs Mass Marketing :/
