Saturday Link Love: Breakfast Club, the Good War, and Being Frugal

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

What About “The Breakfast Club”? on The New Yorker—“There is still so much that I love in them, but lately I have felt the need to examine the role that these movies have played in our cultural life: where they came from, and what they might mean now.”

The Good War, on The Nib—“How America’s infatuation with World War II has eroded our conscience.”

Being Frugal Is For the Rich, on The Outline—“The Frugalwoods made a name for themselves teaching millennials how to save money. Trouble is, you have to start with a lot of it.”

Exploitation of Marginalized Identities, Abuse and Torture: The Hart Children, on Petroleuses—“The Harts very likely gained accolades and attention from this community due to having adopted six children of color and “saving” them.”

Gun Culture Is My Culture. And I Fear for What It Has Become, on New York Times—“I pushed friends behind the brick foundation of a house as a shootout erupted over pills. There were times when someone could have easily been shot and killed.”
