What to Be Thankful For: Earlier this week I told you my good friends Annie and Eric were donating 100% of the online sales of their I Love You California collection to help support the relief efforts for those affected by the California wildfires. I said if you bought, I’d match. And you bought. Between NextDraft, my wife’s newsletter The What, and some coverage from 7×7, we managed to raise $100,000 in two days. You created a ton of work for Annie and Eric and cost me a lot of money. And we thank you for it.

+ What to Watch: You probably think you don’t feel like ending a pretty rough news week by watching a Holocaust survivor talk about the day she left her dying father on a train to Auschwitz. Trust me, you do. You definitely do. From the NYT: I Have a Message for You.

The question itself may be off the mark. Katherine J. Cramer takes you across Wisconsin to understand what’s going on: The Politics of Resentment.
