On a planet with billions of humans, a lot can happen overnight.

Waking up on a Sunday to a new reality. What happened while we slept?

I read the Sunday “news” so you don’t have to (and add handy action steps)

In a previous life, my favorite part of the week was Sunday when I would buy the print version of The New York Times and spread it out across my tiny studio apartment in Manhattan. It took hours to consume and I relished every minute. By the time I was finished, four cups of coffee and two toasted bagels with cream cheese later, I felt as though I could plan my week as a well-informed and socially-engaged member of society.
