A few links of interest from around the web:
- Kameron Hurley on why we need to keep living our lives during this time of national despair: “Because to cease living and working is to give in to the ultimate in despair and terror, and check out of this timeline completely.

It’s to ensure that good people go away.” (“Ongoing National Horrors Can’t Be Unplugged, But We Go On“)
- A recent “Poets Respond” from Rattle: “Open Carry” by Rebecca Starks.
- And for readers in Texas, don’t forget about the upcoming election in November. From The Texas Tribune: “Hey, Texplainer: What constitutional amendments will be on the November ballot?“
