Illinois fights book bans, Death in Paradise and colonialism, and more!
Hello again! Comforting pic for what’s been a pretty horrible week.
Not as much writing as sometimes, but still a bunch published this week. If you’re not a paid subscriber, consider becoming one so I can keep scribbling? Also you’ll get to see my music track of the week, which can be fun if you like music and weeks.
If you read one thing by me this week, read:

Republicans respond to attacks on Israel by demonstrating their unfitness. (Public Notice)
The economic anxiety explanation of fascism is wrong and also fatalist. (EIH)
