Sunday Coffee, Vol. 3

5 interesting things I’ve read, watched, or recommend from the Internet this week

Patrick Coleman of Fatherly on how a 1980s parenting style can build self-reliant kids.

Donnell Rawlings (Chappelle’s Show) asks Theo Von “What kind of racist are you?” I suggest not eating while watching this as you may choke from laughter on your food.

The crisis in American girlhood. P.S. Blaming the pandemic alone is lazy. America needs to look in the mirror. All Americans.

This may be the greatest biopic (or movie for any genre) I have ever watched. Starring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford, 42 is the story of Jackie Robinson, the first black athlete to play in Major League Baseball in the modern era. We watched 42 as a family recently and damn was it powerful… so we watched it again.

Outside Magazine on the top 25 hikes in the world right now, which includes a peak a mere 25 minute drive from my own backyard: Old Rag, in Shenandoah National Park.
