Late-night denizens, though, may soon find their nights shortened by new Los Angeles County restrictions.

How Errol Morris Became Obsessed with — and Figured Out — the Truth of a Famous War Photograph

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8QVBt2hh9M Errol Morris didn’t go all the way to the Crimean Peninsula just because of a sentence written by Susan Sontag. “No,” he once explained to a friend, “it was actually two sentences.” Found in Regarding the Pain of Others, Sontag’s late book-length essay on war photography, these lines deal with the fact that “many of the canonical images of early war photography turn out to have been staged, or to have had their subjects tampered with.” Take Val...

Leonardo Da Vinci’s To-Do List from 1490: The Plan of a Renaissance Man

Most people’s to-do lists are, almost by definition, pretty dull, filled with those quotidian little tasks that tend to slip out of our minds. Pick up the laundry. Get that thing for the kid. Buy milk, canned yams and kumquats at the local market. Leonardo Da Vinci was, however, no ordinary person. And his to-do lists were anything but dull. Da Vinci would carry around a notebook, where he would write and draw anything that moved him. “It is useful,” Leonardo once wrote, to “constantly observe,...

Not much of an explanation in "N.Y.C.’s Schools Shutdown, Explained."

That's a very short article in the NYT this morning. Highlights:  The mayor’s 10 a.m. news conference [yesterday] was repeatedly pushed back and finally began at 3 p.m. At a separate news conference earlier in the afternoon, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo shouted at a reporter who asked whether schools would remain open.  While he was speaking, The Times reported that schools would close on Thursday....  Many parents depend on their children being in school for at least part of the week in order to wor...
