I hope you all had a nice weekend.
It’s time to enjoy these summer days while they last. I swear, it feels like we just started the summer and it’s August already.
We’re also in the midst of the Summer Olympics, which can be a great time for sports fans–and also a time of great frustration. As a couple articles will point out in this week’s magazine, there are still countless issues surrounding accessibility regarding the Olympics, as well as other areas of entertainment. It’s disappointing to hear about these instances, considering that the Olympics are a worldwide event worthy of being equally accessible to every viewer or listener. It is my hope that by the time the next summer games are held, entertainment equality won’t even be something that we talk about anymore, simply because it has become ubiquitous. There’s a long way to go before we get there, but it is absolutely possible.
Just one brief announcement for this week. The next two issues of the magazine will not be released on a Monday. Next week’s magazine will be released on Tuesday, August 7th, and the following week’s magazine will be released on Tuesday, August 14th.
I hope you all enjoy the articles in this week’s magazine and that you usher in the month of August with some fun plans in store.
Take care, and as always, thanks for reading.
