1. Will the President be recommending this book? Guess not.
Shockingly, he’s provided no evidence of any inaccuracies. And by “third rate” he means Pulitzer Prize winners.
2. A Museum is a Terrible Place for a Date. Not sure I agree. Easier to abort mid-course than at a restaurant, right?
3. How 17 Outsize Portraits Rattled a Small Southern Town. Required reading—and viewing—for anyone trying to understand the (dis)United States today. Why are some people unable or unwilling to accept neighbors with different shades of skin and different faith traditions? Last night’s successful, hot date was at The Curry Corner. I don’t know what I would do if the east-Indian-American owners weren’t a part of our community.
5. William Barr, Trump’s Sword and Shield. Superb illustration by Zohar Lazar.
