Happy Friday! Well….this week had a lot of heavy news. I hope you’re doing okay.

If you missed it, we had a fun conversation about weird good stuff we’ve bought for our homes, and I rounded up a bunch of breezy dresses!

This is a great piece. Here is the lede: “On April 30, 2021, after four months in the ceiling, Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, a cat, spent what I thought would be her last night among the dust bunnies. At first, it had been strange to be haunted by a small, hairy ghost who loved to yowl right into the heating ducts. But soon it became almost routine. Some people have mice in their walls. I had a cat in my ceiling.” I Spent 5 Months Trying to Coax a Cat From My Ceiling, at the Atlantic.

This is a pile of yikes: “A Smile With Sharp Teeth”: Mike Richards’s Rise to ‘Jeopardy!’ Host Sparks Questions About His Past. Since this was published, he’s stepped down as replacement host, but (as I type this) is still EP.  What a boondoggle, to quote my mother. [The Ringer]
