Oh hello!

Happy Friday, all. This week on The Baffler website we featured June Thunderstorm's salvo from the new print issue, "Able-Bodied Until It Kills Us." In it, she calls attention to the frequently-trampled-upon janitors, electricians, sanitation workers, and people everywhere who lack the privilege to exempt themselves from nitty gritty physical labor with claims of allergies, sensitive skin, or pre-existing "Tennis Elbow," or what have you.

Also, in case you missed it, George Scialabba's "The Endlessly Examined Life" continues to fascinate: he requested, received, and condensed forty-five years' worth of his mental health records. What results from this unprecedented project is not just one narrative, but many different stories about the changing attitudes and methodology of mental healthcare in America. It also features some excellent (and strange) illustrations from Stuart Goldenberg and Brad Holland.

The rest of Issue 26, "Sickness and Pelf," is all online now, as well. Dig in!

Your friends,
