Welcome to Cotto's News & Culture Report by yours truly, Joseph Cotto. In addition to the work I do at Cotto/Gottfried, I hope that this project will leave folks more enlightened about the world in which they live.

Sharing my musings about society, its history, where it stands today, and where it seems likely to go — whether the outlook appears rosy or bleak — is not just something to pass the time for me.

Rather, this is a key part of my life’s work — to, as the late, great Edward W. Bok said, “(m)ake the world a bit better or more beautiful because you have lived in it.” Who can aspire to more than that?

Sign up now so you do not miss any issues. Needless to say, I am glad that you are here and I hope that you stick around. In case you were wondering, this newsletter is not a spinoff of C/G. The Report is my own personal project and it sinks or swims as such.

P.S., if you would not mind, please tell your friends about this newsletter. The more readers, the merrier!
