Hey guys late post on this but I thought I'd let you know why I haven't been posting this past week. Over Christmas my grandmother passed from some health complications and I haven’t really felt up to putting myself out there on this blog. I’m hoping to get back on a roll in the next couple days. Until then here is a couple things that I’ve been reading over the last week.
What I've been reading this week
El Chapo Speaks – Sean Penn – Rolling Stone
Lets start off with the thing that everyone has been reading. Sean Penn’s weirdly written and oddly edited monstrosity that was the exploration of El Chapo. It’s a weird piece of work that if it wasn’t so timely probably should have been edited a more. I really did not need to know about Penn’s flatulence but don’t worry it’s in there.
The problem with Rolling Stone’s El Chapo interview isn’t Sean Penn. It’s his editors. – Kelly McBride – Poynter
This is a follow up to the previous piece on El Chapo. It examines the ethics of allowing Sean Penn/ El Chapo almost complete control of the article.
The Dress Code for Power Lunching at the Four Seasons – John Ortved – The New York Times
The New York Times did a series of mini profiles of lunch goers at the four seasons. It’s worth a read if only to see the variety of cool outfits and thoughts from celebrities. Henry Kissinger also apparently has no time to deal with the New York Times, which I found hilarious.
Ambulance fees cause heavy damage to the sick and injured – Moira Donovan – The Coast
This is a good read about the state of health care in Nova Scotia and how much it costs for an ambulance. A little bit terrifying as a new resident of the province but definitely a good thing to take note of.
