Nate Parker gave a lengthy interview to Ebony and it is… complicated. It sounds like he got a crash course in male privilege and toxic masculinity (he actually uses those words himself), but he also sounds like he’s genuinely changed his way of thinking, in the last few decades, but even more so in the last few weeks. He says that until now, he had never thought about what consent actually means, and that he definitely wasn’t thinking about it in 1999. These words and epiphanies have power, but of course they also don’t change anything that’s happened. Do they change the way you feel about Parker? (Lainey)

Cannonballer Belphebe gives five stars to The Spanish Cape Mystery by Ellery Queen. "Reading this book is like drinking a nice cup of hot chocolate with the little marshmallows (and more than a touch of brandy) while cozying up in a window seat during a rainstorm on a day you called in sick." Have you read any Ellery Queen? (Cannonball Read 8)
