My grandma, who was a big Louis Armstrong fan, died this week. She was a woman with an opinion about everything and never hesitated to tell you what she really thought. My kind of woman. I'm going to miss her.
$4 million for women journalists. YES.

"You and your email newsletter are the absolute best. Sometimes I think it's truly the very best thing about Friday." -Jeff Miller. This could imply that your Fridays are pretty mediocre, but I'm taking it as a compliment.
"Friday blues are a thing because it's 3:25 and WHERE is @annfriedman? #emptyinbox" -Chloe Ferguson. #checkyourspamfolder, and if it's not there, you can consult the archive.
"Just read through (and clogged my browser tabs from) my first @annfriedman weekly. Wishing I had found it ages ago" -Graison HC. Clogged browser is a commonly reported side-effect of receiving this newsletter.
"Every time I get @annfriedman's weekly newsletter I think she's emailing me personally. Like, 'Oh my gosh, she's found me!'" -Lauren Edmonds. Free idea for Nicholas Sparks: "The Newsletter," a romantic tale of lovers separated by a spam filter. In the movie adaptation, both you and I are played by Ryan Gosling.
This newsletter is for your opinionated grandma, too.
Forward it to her, or print it and snail-mail it with annotations explaining the internet stuff.
