What I’m Reading – December 15, 2013
This is a few days late because Thursday I was here. Then we had friends over on Friday night, and have been busy holiday-ing since. But here are a few articles I’ve been reading this week between events.
– Fascinating / disturbing: People of Color Removed from Paintings
– Lots of ‘yup’ in this one: David Simon: ‘There are now two Americas. My country is a horror show’ (h/t @tgijsola)
– Reminder: Not filing charges does NOT mean the person didn’t commit the crime. Also, this guy won the Heisman Trophy yesterday. Disgusting. Why I Believe Jameis Winston’s Accuser
– Salvation Army is fighting hard against the (deserved) image that it discriminates against LGBT folks. They may be getting better, but No Red Kettles has some evidence to suggest that they still don’t deserve the money of those who support LGBT people: Annual Reminder: Don’t Give to the Salvation Army
– The county held; now a judge decides: SeaTac’s minimum wage measure stands after recount (via @Q13Fox)
