Weekend Rumpus Roundup


We hope you had a merry Christmas! Here’s a comic from Brandon Hicks on Santa vs. God.

As Standing Rock quiets and the Water Protectors move to the next phase of resistance, Theodore C. Van Alst, Jr. studies the wašíču, the fat-takers, on the other side of the divide in the Saturday Essay.

And in the Sunday Interview, Christine Maul Rice talks with Jaimee Wriston Colbert, author of the collection Wild Things, about protecting nature, characters making bad choices, and the importance of community when struggling against greater forces.

Finally, Kim Wright meets the Ghost of Christmas Humanization in “Merry Christmas, Mr. #TrumpOwnsAmerica.”
