Replying to @wynkenhimself

I am fascinated by this. I’ve been studying German, French, and Spanish with Duolingo and the world views of each is SO distinct. German includes a lot of sentences about non-Christian religions that are in neither of the others +

Good morning, friends! I have a favor to ask. Generous Thinking has a couple of reviews on Amazon, which is great. But if you received an ARC, it would be even better to have your thoughts, too. Reviews there make an enormous difference. https://www.amazon.com/dp/1421429462/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_E4MdCbJ41FT1H

I grew up in a conservative southern town that, led by the Church, welcomed Vietnamese migrants in the mid-to-late 1970s. I am horrified, infuriated, and ashamed that someone could suggest they weren’t really part of our community. https://twitter.com/TheAtlantic/status/1072940912131665920

It’s worth reading the story. The chart looks like it’s meant to be some kind of average 25yo, but it’s actually just one actual dude.

Absolutely. This is why the process of getting a mortgage now requires you to account for the origins of every single deposit you’ve made in the period for which you turn over records.
