The New York Magazine that came yesterday. The cover story on the Parkland kid was something you wish kids here could read at home or at the library, maybe the school library. It would inspire them and piss them off almost certainly. It did me as I sat in the coffee shop reading it. There are so many instances where reading something on your own engages you. TV doesn’t do it in that way. Reading is where it happens most personally. Just you and the words, pages of the magazine folded, some photos. You hope of course that every kid in high school can read well enough to read such a thing on their own. Most of the city's public high schools kids can't though.
