Clearing the Cache 2

In an attempt to limit the number of literal tabs open in my internet browser, I have started this little links series. The only rule is that I have to actually read the link that I share before I post it here.

Here’s what I have been reading this week…

Pride of place — this article from the founder of Strong Towns posits that it’s smart NOT to sink extra money into a home in an economically disadvantaged area, which I extrapolate to mean that cities MUST do better to take care of those areas of their community.

Coca Cola Debuts in France – America’s champagne was not a hit. Lots of great photos!

Both First Lady Dr. Jill Biden and Meghan Markle wore this springy dress from Oscar de la Renta recently. I’m a fan of both of these strong women. Happy Women’s History Month!

I couldn’t stop thinking about this story about midcentury modern design legend Ruth Adler Schnee. Her family came to Detroit when she was a child to escape Nazism; she is still going strong at age 97. I hope she lives forever.

This story about how to handle white supremacy and toxic masculinity was interesting.

Yo-Yo Ma performing in a gymnasium after his COVID vaccination was utterly beautiful.
