A Common Policy.

Anna Aslanyan (a convenient name for this purpose) writes celebratorily and lipogrammatically [or rather, wrote on March 29] in the LRB blog: La Disparition, a lipogrammatic classic, turns 50 today. You probably know who it’s by; if not, you can look it up to find out why I’m unwilling to say who did it. From its first publication on 29 March 1969, this book built a cult following. It’s primarily famous for what’s missing from it, a basic but important thing that forms a part of words you can’t ...

The Best Work I Saw at Review Santa Fe: Part 1

  When I go to a portfolio review these days, I’ve got to get on an airplane. It’s a big deal. The packing. The planning. The 3 hour drive to the airport. I’m not complaining, per se, as getting to travel to great cities is a pleasure, not a problem. But heading to Review Santa Fe last month, it was quite a different experience. I woke up at a normal hour. Made breakfast for the kids. Then I went to two parent-teacher conferences at their school. And I ate in a gas station burrito joint. Then I ...

Is Social Security cheating the disabled? The wait time to get a hearing is nearly 2 years

Rebecca Schraeder, 37, got her first job in high school, selling popcorn at an Irvine movie theater. As an adult, she worked as a book store cashier, a hotel desk clerk, a customer service representative and a mortgage firm administrative assistant. But in the past few years Schraeder, who was born with Crohn’s disease, underwent seven surgeries removing parts of her intestines, followed by severe arthritis and bleeding ulcers. Then, as bad luck would have it, a car accident damaged her spine. D...

Why These Men Took Their Wives' Last Names

It may be 2017, but in many circles a man taking his wife's last name is still considered unusual, unheard of, un manly. A study earlier this year even found that half of Americans believe women should be legally bound to take their husbands' last names once they get married. Women may vote and drive and run companies — not to mention win the popular vote — but we're still painfully hung up on certain social conventions.However, there is a growing number of couples who are rejecting tradition. ...
