From Ed Yong’s newsletter:
After the last newsletter, one reader wrote in asking me to stop linking to political pieces. He felt it “inappropriate” and said that he comes here to escape from politics. To people who share that view, some suggestions: Recognise how privileged it is to be able to “escape from politics”. Be grateful that it isn’t constantly in your face, and a matter of life and death. And consider scrolling to the bottom of this email, and click on the magic blue letters that say “Unsubscribe”; there lies your escape, because after the events of this week, and this year in general, the volume of political content in this newsletter will only be going up, not down.
I see your point, Ed. Unsubscribe it is.
