I’ve been really disappointed by the news that the SAGE Foundation is shutting down Pacific Standard.

Make sure to read Toast Story while you still can, one of the finest pieces I’ve read online. It’s about fancy toast and Recovery…

It certainly sucks, but we should probably know better than to expect much of anything out of academic journal publishers. Tbh, this is par for the course with them.

@ben_hr With the tiniest scrap of morals or forethought Sage would have given Pacific Standard some lead time to find alternative sources of funding. There are other options. This was an intentional killing.

@ben_hr this has always been my favourite long form journalism about toast
