JBF: Don’t Debate with Nazis (The Daily Herald)
My stomach was hollow. I searched the text for answers but didn’t find any. “Roberto!”, I called for the roommate to review the 10-page PDF, “Did I just read Nazi propaganda or is this a failed attempt at playing devil’s advocate?”


Here are cool things I found online. This month is all about the women folk!

A Life Without Social Media by Iris Kirkland
When Iris said she was going off the grid, I had all kinds of thoughts. The most amazing thing I’ve experienced since she started that journey 1 year ago is how timely her newsletter has been for my life even though she’s not online.
