* “The Culture of the Single Millennial.” The sort of thing that reminds us of why Substack is useful.
* “San Diego Hasn’t Surrendered to Disorder:” one reading of events.
* “The Overwhelming Underwhelmingness of Academia: Three Reasons to Leave:” on the epistemological crisis in the social “sciences.”
* “A Multigenerational Home in Amsterdam Can Be Reconfigured for Changing Demands.” This is the sort of thing that overly restrictive mandatory single-family zoning in the United States prevents. Much of the U.S. tech and entrepreneurial sectors are creative, fast-paced, and adaptive, while anything related to land use and housing is slow, sclerotic, and ossified. We can and should do better.
* “Alumni Withhold Donations, Demand Colleges Enforce Free Speech.” Possibly a bogus trend story.
* “When the Crime Wave Hits Your Family: Our nanny’s living room in Oakland was sprayed with bullets. It didn’t even make the local news.” It’s hard not to foresee a political backlash in California and elsewhere.
