Week In Review: June 12-16

by Travis Mateer

For this week’s review I’m trying out a slightly different format. I go through the week’s posts solo, then read a chapter from a book. If that sounds simple, it’s because I desperately need SOMETHING in my life to a be a little more simple.

The book I’m choosing for this week is about police reform in Montana from 1889-1918, and the chapter is about “regulating transients”. Yes, that’s right, and it will be difficult to imagine that what you are hearing is about things that happened OVER a century ago in Montana.

With this new simplified format I’ll also be including a list of links to all the previous week’s material, but not much else beyond that. Gotta save it for Monday!

Speaking of next week, the post for Monday is already written, and it details what I found while searching the banks of the Clark Fork River for the spot where Joey Thompson’s body was found. You won’t want to miss it, so stay tuned! And please consider supporting Travis’ Impact Fund (TIF), or making a donation at my about page, if you appreciate my work.

Thank you for listening/reading!

    • I think I pronounced it right the first time, but then I just gave up. Thanks for listening, I had to laugh several times reading this history of vagrancy, will we ever figure this shit out?
