LZ Sunday Paper Newsletter: The "Semi-FInal Finals" Edition

Dateline: 9/5/21

Dear Subscribers,

Happy New Year/L'Shanah Tovah to you and your families.

I hope yet another storm -- if you were in the path of Ida in the Northeast -- and fires and floods and pestilence and plagues around the rest of the country -- didn't hit too hard.

I am taking both the Labor Day holiday and the Jewish holiday to reflect and renew. And also to go to the U.S. Open to watch the Osaka-less women's semi-finals on Thursday.

So today, enjoy the best of the best, from politics to tech, business to the arts, health to pop culture. It's the news you need to know by and about other fabulous women in the news, every week.

Click here to get the newsletter, hand-delivered, every week to your virtual doorstep, your inbox. We promise not to waste space.

Have fun!
