Anyway, to the links!
First, over at Adjusted Latitudes I posted the "awards show" summary of our recent vacation to PEI and Nova Scotia.
Next on my list is to get the pre-orders posted for The Boy Who Was Mistaken for a Fairy King and start recruiting more advance reviewers. There is still time to volunteer as an advance reviewer if you're interested!
In other links:
Apparently, my city is leading the state in using red flag laws to prevent gun violence. These laws only work if police and prosecutors are willing to use them, so I was glad to read that article.
And my state has a new law aimed at preventing police shootings that was introduced by a San Diego legislator.
My "if you only read one thing" pick this week is this Vox article about why we should switch to electric school buses.
I though Dahlia Lithwick did a good job of describing the effect of the Trump years on ordinary people.
Some great news about kākāpō!
200 #kakapo! The population has reached 200 today, with the latest chick (Esperance-3-B-19) becoming a juvenile - when we add birds to the official tally. There are probably more kākāpō alive now than at any time for ≥70 years. #kakapo2019 #conservation pic:@deidre_vercoe pic.twitter.com/7mWMJcSExv— Dr Andrew Digby (@takapodigs) August 17, 2019
