I recently read Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town at the recommendation kleinbl00, and can't recommend it enough. If anyone knows of a similarly excellent book about the current opioid crisis, I'd love to hear about it.

I also just finished Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City as recommended by Bill Gates in his year-end book recommendation list. It may be the most visceral and enraging account of poverty and exploitation in modern America that I've ever found. I'm struggling to come up with productive responses to this situation, but I'm sure some other radical hubskiers may have thoughts here as well.

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Pick me! Pick me!

I had added The Color of Law to my reading list entirely because Gates also recommends that - somehow I hadn't added Evicted to the list. Will do that now!
