What is originalism? Debunking the myths

Originalism has featured prominently in each of the last three Supreme Court confirmation battles – those of Neil Gorsuch in 2017, Brett Kavanaugh in 2018 and now Amy Coney Barrett. Each time, misconceptions about this theory of constitutional interpretation have swirled: Isn’t originalism self-defeating because the Founders weren’t originalist? Don’t originalists ignore the amendments written after 1789? Do originalists think the Constitution applies only to horse-drawn carriages and muskets? A...


5 ways brands can stop performative allyship and become real allies

Performative allyship can damage your reputation and credibility. EMS-FORSTER-PRODUCTIONS/Getty Images Many businesses are using performative allyship to promote positive social perceptions of their brand, which is a superficial move that diversity advocate Nika White says can work against you in the long run.  Brands should take an introspective look at their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts, and assess areas where changes need to be made.  Once you've evaluated these initiatives ...

SW Portland’s top priority, $26 million project clears final hurdle

(Existing conditions on the left, future conditions on the right.) It’s not every day a project that’s a top priority for an entire quadrant gets authorized for construction — much less one that local activists have been pushing on for 30 years. That’s why Portland City Council’s support of the Southwest Capitol Highway project yesterday was such a big deal. You might recall how we took a closer look at this project in 2015. SW Neighborhoods Inc (SWNI, the local neighborhood coalition) ...

In their new book, The Upswing: How America Came Together a Century Ago and How We Can Do It Again, Robert Putnam and Shaylyn Romney Garrett argue that, though the U.S. suffered a similar litany of political, economic, cultural, and social upheaval...

Why Venus flytraps are so popular and misunderstood

Don’t try to feed a piece of your Double-Double to a Venus flytrap. In-N-Out is for people, not carnivorous plants. You can’t them meat the way you feed a dog. But they make good pets, according to lifelong enthusiast Josh Brown. “They’re a pet that produces very little waste or noise. They have little personalities and they’re happy to do their own thing.” Venus flytraps have leaves that sense when an insect lands on them and then close around the bug to digest it. Bugs serve as fertilizer, not...

The biker

Back on January 9th, a group of HELL'S ANGELS, South Carolina bikers were riding east on 378 , after eating a large greasy pastrami sandwich with coleslaw Coney island fries and many pickles and of course how can you forget the doctor Brown's cream soda, were riding and farting on their Harley's, when all of a sudden they saw a girl about to jump off the Pee Dee River Bridge. So they stopped. Phil, their leader, a big burly man of 53, gets off his Harley, walks through a group of gawkers, past ...

Glimpsing The Beatles, Bill Maher, Margaret Thatcher, and — above all! — Craig Brown.

I read Craig Brown's "Ninety-Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret" — as I noted here — so the minute I see that he's got a new book, "150 Glimpses of the Beatles," I put it in my Kindle. Nothing more is needed to get me. It's Craig Brown! And The Beatles. But I'm interested to see what Bill Maher — of all people — has to say about it in the New York Times. Let's read this: I like the old stories — frankly, if I wanted something challenging to read, I wouldn’t be reading “150 Glimpses of the Bea...

California Unemployment Rate Dips As Jobs Regained Despite Pandemic

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — More than a third of the 2.6 million nonfarm jobs California lost to the pandemic in March and April have been regained, state officials said Friday. The leisure and hospitality sector accounted for half the overall gain of 96,000 jobs, after experiencing the largest month-to-month loss in August, as restaurants, hotels and other hospitality businesses benefitted from the state’s easing of restrictions designed to slow the virus’ spread.

The Abkhaz Sneeze.

I’m rereading Mandelstam’s 1933 Путешествие в Армению (Journey to Armenia) in preparation for reading Andrei Bitov’s 1969 Уроки Армении (Lessons of Armenia), and I keep the Clarence Brown translation handy in case of emergency (Mandelstam’s prose is not easy reading). Just now I got to the fourth section, Сухум (Sukhumi), which opens with a passage on the local language: В начале апреля я приехал в Сухум — город траура, табака и душистых растительных масел. Отсюда следует начинать изучение азбу...
