This Week's Writing 7/28/23
Masculinity is not in crisis; DeSantis is.
Dog and cat, imitating throw pillows.
Hello again! Eagle eyed readers may have noticed I did not do a Star Trek TOS recap post this week; I did another Star Trek thing and figured that was maybe enough? But the recaps will continue this coming week with “The Doomsday Machine”, which is a solid episode. Also! Got a post coming on what we should remember about William Hurt, maybe a thing on Jason Aldean’s authenticity…and who knows what else?
But that is the week to come. Below is what I wrote in the week that was.
