The Nation!!

I've been subscribing to The Nation for years.  Recently I received the April 2015, 150th Anniversary edition.  It is wonderful.  If you can find it or order it, do!

There are articles and letters from the last 150 years from people you have heard of - Edward Abbey, Muhammad Ali, James Baldwin, Wendell Berry, Noam Chomsky, E.L. Doctorow, Albert Einstein, Christopher Hitchens, Molly Ivins, Henry James, Martin Luther King Jr., Naomi Klein, Arthur Miller, Toni Morrison, Gore Vidal, Alice Walker etc.

I keep opening it wherever I come to, enchanted with what is here.  See if you can find it and revel in the clapping together of care and compassion as time passes through the wisdom of shared words.
