2. My Pregnancies Cost Me My Hearing (posted January 11) "After all, why would I connect hearing loss to pregnancy? No one had told me such a thing existed!"
3. Was 2016 especially dangerous for celebrities? An empirical analysis. (posted January 2) A must-read for statistics nerds.
4. ‘Of Asher, Pagiel son of Ocran’ (posted January 4) "And I knew, because I had been taught this, that I was supposed to learn something from these censuses of the 12 tribes of Israel — something that would bring me closer to holiness and purity of devotion, something transformative. But whatever that something was, I just wasn’t seeing it. All I was seeing, instead, was a bunch of questions — questions that none of my teachers or youth ministers seemed happy to hear or willing to answer." DAMN this is a good post.

"The southern auxiliaries of the Bible society who fought tooth and nail to prevent enslaved persons from acquiring and reading those Bibles held themselves up as champions of the very Bible they were fighting to suppress."
