‘The Sunday Read’: Letters of Recommendation

Description

Our worlds have contracted; once expansive, our orbits are now measured by rooms and street blocks. But there are still ways to travel. Today, escape to the worlds contained in three letters — one about the summer of 1910, another describing an upended misconception and a third about how superstitions can offer release. We hope they can offer you some meaning — or at least a distraction.

I usually dislike non news The Daily. However the first story with the diary of that grandma was great. I love eyewitness accounts of the past.

I think this would be a lot better if he read his own article, which I felt like in the Weird Al post too.
