Ack...the week is flying and I haven't had time to catch up on all the things I have been meaning to post about. But to keep you occupied - here are some favorite reads from the week. America's Angriest Store all about Whole Foods shoppers is a pretty entertaining read...(though note that contrary to what the writer says, WF employees are not all happy and in fact if John Mack had his way none of them would have healthcare or benefits)....moving on though. The Secret History of Women in the Senate starts slow but made my Wednesday morning as I drank my coffee and worked through it. For all the Serial enthusiasts out there - this TIME interview with Deirdre Enright is one of the best pieces I have read post-podcast - highly recommend it! Everyone cross your fingers now and hope that this NYTimes article means the start of Louis CK on tour. Need a break from reading at this point?...I spent far too long on Dot&Bo the other night - in case you want to peruse some online shopping - great stuff!  And finally, What Ruth Bader Ginsburg Taught Me About Being a Stay-at-Home Dad in The Atlantic - particularly liked these two gems...but really the entire thing is solid. 

  • "Indeed, part of what made Ginsburg’s legal strategy so effective was that she exposed the irrationality of sex discrimination by challenging laws that—at least on their faces—conferred special advantages on women."
  • "It’s easy to assume that celebrated figures like the Boss possess superhuman levels of discipline. But an insight one gains working at a place like the Supreme Court is that we all face similar constraints on our time, energy, and intellectual bandwidth."
