@odd That’s a really big problem here too, and a sad one. I miss learning about local government from reporters who were deeply involved and familiar with it. My local paper was sold and merged to cover a whole area, originally covered by four papers. The worse the coverage gets, the fewer subscribers, leading to more content cuts, meaning fewer subscribers, on and on.
@odd Little hope. He’s been reelected a number of times by a wide margin. But I will continue my small war of imploring email replies and the occasional phone call in the hope he does something for our district.
@pimoore Right? Pineapple can divide a house. And I can’t even broach the subject of anchovies with my family. (I think they are good sometimes!)
@derekpeden I think it’s a regional thing in the US. If you grew up hearing “pizza pie” then it sounds natural. But not everyone did.
@joshuapsteele Here are two that are meditation focused (as that’s where my mindfulness practice centers): I liked 10% Happier. It was a nice intro to meditation from a skeptic’ s perspective. Waking Up by Sam Harris is my favorite book on mindfulness. So many great insights and practical principles.
