Before digging into the new book on the Theranos scam, rereading a good book about an older scam. All of this has happened before...

Nice summary of the book Bad Blood, definitely a book worth reading

It's not the only book on this list that I've read, but I love that Janelle Monáe included The Great Cosmic Mother (which I read soon after it came out 30 years ago).

Reading can also be a social activity

At @MathesonMuseum, @macdonald_peggy “channels her inner @cynthiabarnett” (as we all wish we could) to intro @jackedavisfl at celebration of his #Pulitzer for “The Gulf.” The book is beautiful & comes at perfect time for me, as I try to absorb all the #NOLA environ history I can.
