I know I just published a links post, but I’ve come across a couple of things I’d like to share.

First, an eyewitness description of the conditions in one of the shelters where young children are being housed after being forcibly taken away from their parents. This entire process is so cruel, so devoid of compassion or humanity, that it makes a complete mockery of any claim America has to moral authority.

It’s hard to shift gears from that, but I really appreciated this personal essay about being married and being yourself.

This upcoming book sounds like it could be pretty cool!

I did not know there was a Victorian-era London railway station specifically for coffins and mourners! How cool and bizarre.

You know that Stanford Prison Experiment that always gets trotted out? Turns out the truth is considerably more complicated. (This related Twitter thread is also a good perspective.)
