READING! “My Paper.li” for Tuesday, July 21st

It’s Tuesday during a tense week in which deeply troubling things are happening in Portland, OR.

A must read article (which you’ll also find in today’s My Paper.li) is “Nothing Can Justify the Attack in Portland” in The Atlantic by a couple of top-notch legal journalists.

The message is as simple as it is ugly: The caravan isn’t just coming north through Mexico.

It is already here—in the efforts to take down statues, in the protests, in the pockets of disorder in American urban areas and in the gatherings of people exercising their First Amendment rights to object to police misconduct.

The caravan, in fact, is the city.

And only Trump can protect you from it—whether it is what you see when you look south or what you see when you look downtown.
