Anyway, my work day was short and not very productive, and I only have a few minutes to get this post out before I need to start dinner. I'll have to find a time this weekend to try to get some work done. I'm struggling with the paperback cover of Hemmed In, my next Taster Flight collection. I keep failing to get the spine text in the right place, and I'm running out of time to get it right. I need to get a proof ordered! But I'll get it done, and I think the June 7 release date will stick. If you're interested in being an advance reader for this book, sign up here. I should have the ebook files ready to send out sometime next week.
On to the links:
Rebecca Traister's new interview with Hillary Clinton is worth your time.
So is Brian Beutler's take on what the Gianforte mess means.
But if you only read one of my links this week, make it Mitch Landrieu's speech on taking down Confederate memorials in New Orleans. It is brilliant and inspiring and I want more like this, please.
This look at when different cities will reach climate departure is really sobering. Climate departure is the point at which the coldest year in the new normal is warmer than the warmest year in the old normal. It isn't all that far away.

The Montana special election is over, but there will be more elections, and as this thread explains, the Native population has obstacles to voting:
First, the basics: Natives weren’t allowed to vote until 1965. There’s no legacy of voting in families, no “my family’s been Dem forever.”— Anne Helen Petersen (@annehelen) May 25, 2017
You can donate to Western Native Voice to try to alleviate those obstacles.
Catherine Newman's post about being angry and being polite and being confused by it all rings really, really true to me.
Something happy to end on: some slides I'll have to seek out next time I visit San Francisco.
And of course, a bunny!
Happy weekend, everyone!
