Welcome to Althea's Reading List! It's a list of things I hope you didn't miss, and if you did, check them out now!

OPB - Portland’s protests made them friends. After the Normandale Park shooting, they became family.

The reporting here is really superb, and it's a powerful story. Lots of important aspects have been lost in the headlines over time and this article picks them up in a meaningful way. 

Eddy Burback on YouTube - The Deceptive World of Ghost Kitchens

This is lighter fare to be sure, but still a fascinating look at what is going on inside food delivery apps, and how the system is gamed against small businesses. Plus, not to *spoil* things for you, but there's also some big looming questions about food safety. Happy Snacking!
