Letters from an American

Someone who outdoes me by a wide margin in generation of daily thoughts is Heather Cox Richardson, a history professor at Boston College. About a month ago I started getting emails from her every morning, a free service called “Letters from an American.” In them, she discusses current events in the context of American history. I don’t know how I got on her list — I must have clicked on something — but unlike 99% of what gets dumped gratuitously in one’s mailbox, her daily essays are extraordinarily intelligent and informative. I read elsewhere that even a few years ago she had a million subscribers. I wish she had as many as there are eligible voters in the U.S.A.
