Hi friend of PRX,

How can it be one day since the solstice and we’re already in the dog days of summer?

Office fights over the air conditioning. Sticky trips home on public transit. Dreams of Antarctica. A nobel for the inventor of A/C? Ice cream as a food group. The true joys of summer.

More lemonade, please,
