I Pine for Happy Joe’s Taco Pizza, the Culinary Relic of My Iowa Youth

Via Alison Feldmann

I misssssssssssss this!!! The centerpiece to many a birthday party.

“I’ve forced many friends and lovers who grew up outside the Central time zone to try this feat of Midwest culinary innovation, and they invariably hate it—even, improbably, the stoners. But my taste buds developed in symbiosis with taco pizza, so it will always be delicious to me. It is my Proustian madeleine, carrying me back to the ’80s and ’90s in eastern Iowa.”

England’s Mental Health Experiment: No-Cost Talk Therapy

“‪The exhausting thing about all the “get mental healthcare for your depression” messages is that most psychotherapists and psychiatrists don’t take insurance. So lets end insurance. Demand Medicare for all” — Elana Levin

In NYC, where I’m guessing there is the highest concentration of mental health professionals in the country, I have good insurance and still almost no one within an hour commute takes it or if the rare person actually does take my insurance, they don’t have the capacity to take on another client. I got lucky and eventually found someone after months of searching. What about people with worse insurance or no insurance or people who don’t live in NYC? That’s pretty much everyone besides me and it was still so difficult for me.

As Josie Duffy Rice says, “If I had one superpower it would be to force pretty much all of you into therapy.” Can you imagine how different the world would be if everyone had access to free, accessible mental health care?

Medicare for all, Medicare for all, Medicare for all. Nothing else is enough.
