The Retroactive Table of Contents : February 17 – 24
Starting this week, we will be introducing a new feature here at the League: the Retroactive Table of Contents Subscription. If you wish, each Friday or Saturday we will send you via email a list of the topics and posts of the week. It’s a way for those of you with actual lives to keep up to date with the quality writing and conversations here at LoOG.
Anyone that would like to be included in the subscription list can make a note in this – or any future – Retroactive ToCs, or simply email a request to rtodkelly at mac dot com.
We won’t forward our mailing list to any else, and we promise not to inundate you with spam. You can cancel your subscription at any time! No salesman will ever visit your home! The Retroactive Table of Contents is backed by a full money-back guarantee! If you aren’t completely satisfied with the Retroactive Table of Contents we’ll refund all your money! The Retroactive Table of Contents is part of this nutritious breakfast! It makes a great gift! And every subscription comes with a free toy surprise! (OK, that last one was actually a total fabrication; it doesn’t actually come with a free toy surprise.)
A sample of what the mailer will look like is up after the break. And with that, on with what you might have missed at the League this week:
Headline of the Week: Parenting by Class
Mike Dwyer took a look at Lauara McKenna’s latest article in the Atlantic on parenting, as well as a study by Annette Lareau on the same. To what degree is our increased hands-on approach to raising kids a boon, and to what degree are we just making more fragile adults-to-be?
Big Theme of the Week : The Abortion Issue
