Bwoglines: Bill Withers Edition

Hello, and welcome to Bwoglines: the flagship… newsletter? bulletin? of the Beginner’s Mind.

Happening in the World: Bill Withers died of heart complications yesterday at the age of 81. A famed singer-songwriter, he is responsible for such hits as “Lovely Day,” “Ain’t No Sunshine,” and “Lean On Me.” (New York Times)

Happening in the US: This week saw the completion of the merger between Sprint and T-Mobile, bringing the total number of wireless carriers in the US to just three. Dish Network, the television provider, has said that it will be building out its network in the coming years to take the place of a fourth network, and will absorb a portion of Sprint’s customers then. (The Verge)

Happening in NYC: The MTA removed a 4 train from operation after it was found graffitied with a memorial to Garrett Goble, who died last week in a subway fire at the 110th Street-Central Park North subway station. The graffiti features a stylized reprinting of Goble’s last name, along with the phrases “Rest In Peace!” and “Protect The Workers!” (THE CITY)

If you’re bored: I don’t care that it ended in 2018, “Hark! A Vagrant” remains one of the best webcomics on the World Wide Web. But don’t just take my word for it. (Also, if you have webcomics to recommend, tweet at us.)

Have a great day.
