SCHOOL ST. "FACTORY DISTRICT" DANIELSON, CT in 1869.

I live next door to the old School House.


"HE SEES ALL OF US WHO WENT TO VIETNAM AS FOOLS."

Former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerry to Anderson Cooper. 3/20/19

“Mr. President, Get your feet x-rayed and let’s see those bone spurs,” Kerrey suggested. But when he says he’s not my kind of guy, because he went to Vietnam, because he was flying combat missions and got shot down, was held as a prisoner. That’s not your kind of guy? Who is your kind of guy? Your friends who falsified their records so they didn’t have to go? I think that’s the answer. I think he sees all of us who went to Vietnam as fools.”

What Is an Auteur?: Catherine Breillat's "Sex Is Comedy"





Our next film by provocatrice Catherine Breillat gives you a glimpse behind the scenes: her signature dramas of sex and psychology, taking place on a movie set! Clearly inspired by the making of Breillat's controversial Fat Girl, this is a bracing self-inquiry into the power-games of moviemaking.

I THANK GOD EVERY DAY FOR BEING WHITE AND THEN GET BUSY DOING SOMETHING TO MAKE AMENDS FOR IT

Yes, Paul Manafort's great luck was getting one terrible judge, and one overly fair one. But neither of those factors match his greatest luck: he was born a white man in America.

FROM THE NEW ISSUE

Anne Biklé & David R. Montgomery 
 

There's a minimountain of organic fish compost in my driveway, dumped there by a local company that turns yard debris and food waste into garden goodness. Steam comes off the pile when you dig around, proving its microbial mettle. After working on the Dirt Issue for spring, I was inspired to revive my garden beds. In the issue, scientists Anne Biklé and David Montgomery describe how compost, persistence, and patience helped to create lush gardens in their backyard, where there once had been only lifeless dirt. To do that, they say, makes us stewards of the Earth. I'm ready.

Should citizens who left home to join ISIS be allowed to return? While international law holds that the answer is yes, the governments of both the United Kingdom and the United States are refusing to do just that. ISIS is responsible for unconscionable crimes against humanity, and it promotes ideas that are vicious and dangerous in the extreme. But citizenship rights are too important—and too foundational to the American, British, and international systems of law—to be revoked without due process. Exiling nationals is a tool of lawless tyrannies, not liberal democracies. It's not just illegal; it's wrong.
