So the President is a MotherF**ker??

On several occasions I've written about swearing and rhetoric as well as about expletive naming. In a recent article, Emma Byrne adds to my ideas by writing about the "scientific case for calling the president a motherf*cker."   Byrne especially likes the Rep. Rashida Tlaib's remark, noting that she used the swear word in rhetorically correct fashion.  As Byrne writes, rhetoric reveals that this kind of language signals trust and a sense of belonging--and it also "fosters closeness and s...

New York Times: "revival of interest in the composer Florence Price continues this week"

The New York Times January 11, 2019 The welcome revival of interest in the composer Florence Price continues this week, with the release of a buoyant recording of her First and Fourth symphonies, with the Fort Smith Symphony of Arkansas conducted by John Jeter. Both works bear trace influences of folk forms — including, as the musicologist Douglas W. Shadle writes in the liner notes, a reference to “Wade in the Water” during the Fourth’s opening movement. But there are as many...

‘True Detective’ Season 3 Review: A Semi-Successful Attempt to Recreate What Made Season 1 Special

“Someone once told me, ‘Time is a flat circle,'” Detective Rustin Cohle famously said in the first season of True Detective. “Everything we’ve ever done or will do, we’re gonna do over and over and over again.” Series creator Nic Pizzolatto didn’t know it at the time, but when he wrote those words for Matthew McConaughey to deliver, he was predicting the future of his own TV series. As True Detective season 3 unfolds, it becomes clear that Pizzolatto has decided to do everything he did in seaso...

Federal workers must show up and can't strike even when not paid in Trump's Shutdown

Did you know all those hundreds of thousands of U.S. government workers who aren't getting paid during Trump's 18-days-and-counting shutdown still have to show up for work, even if they are not getting paid? Hard to believe, right? But true. U.S. law says public employees are not allowed to go on strike. Federal workers are forced into what one union leader called “involuntary servitude” during the ongoing government shutdown. Here's an excerpt from an Atlantic explainer on the law behind this...

Blue states rank better than red ones: How’d your state fare in 14 national rankings?

Blue states were better than red states in 2018. That’s what my trusty spreadsheet tells me when I compiled a selection of state-by-state rankings that serve our national thirst to debate who’s No. 1 and who’s dead last. My study used 14 state-by-state rankings published last year on various quality-of-life subjects.  My “red” states were those who voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election; “blue” states were the ones that didn’t go for Trump. The blue states scored better two ways —...
