Every Monday (or in this case, Tuesday), words to start the week.  


This week, from The Atlantic (again): a powerful piece by Ta-nehisi Coates called "Bill Cosby and His Enablers." A small snippet:

"There is no real difference in claiming that a woman in a married man’s hotel room forgoes the right to her body, and asserting that a black boy wearing a hoodie forgoes the right to his. Brutality is brutality, and it always rests on a bed of lies."

Read the article in its entirety, here. Photo by Gabriella Demczuk for The New York Times.

A few more, just because: 
-A stockpile of beautiful sentences.
-Chef Angela Dimayuga of Mission Chinese Food shares a mesmerizing account of everything she ate the week of January 7th.
-One more from David Bowie: "'It's not hip to be cool,' he said one day, sipping a beer. 'It really isn't. I had a heyday with the whole iceman-cometh bit. I'm cooled out, man. I've seen so much cool, it's just left me cold.'"

Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday. More reads, here—and new POV to come.

Eloquent. Applies to Coates and also Bowie (..."I've seen so much cool, it's just left me cold"). And yes, I do remember the food at Mission. That was eloquent, too.

I think A LOT of your sentences need to make their way to that site!
