How was your week, friends? I saw Eighth Grade with a buddy, phone banked for the DFL (totally not scary!), and packed + planned for my trip to Denver next week. Totally excited to see the Denver Aquarium mermaids and try out some great vegan restaurants!

Melissa McCarthy is a gem.
She makes coffee, and she does not turn on the news; she does not check her email; she does not do Transcendental Meditation. She watches TV — “I treat myself right,” she says — an old episode of “Knight Rider,” which she thinks everyone should be rewatching, or the original episodes of “The Incredible Hulk.”

Retailing is notorious for wafer-thin profit margins. Grocers, for example, typically earn margins of less than 5%. This is not the case for mattresses. Compared to its listed price, it costs relatively little to make a mattress. Consumer Reports reports that markups in the 40-50% range are standard in the industry—and once a mattress crosses the $1,000 threshold, markups are even higher. One assessment of a $3,000 mattress found that it cost about $300 to make—an astonishing 900% markup.
