Ben Bradlee Slept Here: The Legendary Journalist’s Georgetown House Changes with the Times

Ben Bradlee, the famed Washington Post editor and bon vivant—played by Tom Hanks in The Post and Jason Robards in All the President’s Men—probably wouldn’t recognize his old Georgetown residence. Remodeled in an elegantly succinct style that’s far more European than preppy, it’s still nonetheless his kind of place: the double living room is designed for hobnobbing, the dining table stands ready for a crowd, and every room is filled with family mementos, a pair of water skis included. What’s more...

The War for the Soul of America

The War for the Soul of America U.S.A. –-( The war in Washington will not end until the presidency of Donald Trump ends. Everyone seems to sense that now. This is a fight to the finish. A postelection truce that began with Trump congratulating House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — “I give her a great deal of credit for what she's done and what she's accomplished” — was ancient history by nightfall.With the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his replacement by...

Midterms Usher Wave Of Young, Democratic Women Of Color Into House

Tuesday night’s elections saw an influx of diversity “firsts” in the House of Representatives, ushered in by the record-breaking candidacies of women — specifically women of color — on the Democratic ticket. In rapid succession, the House got its first two Muslim women: Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar and Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib. Omar is also the first Somali-American congresswoman, while Tlaib is the chamber’s first Palestinian-American. Ilhan Omar, congresswoman-elect for Minnesota’s 5th district. ...

I flew business class on the only Dreamliner route between the US and Mexico — here's what it was like

While most flights within North America are operated by narrow-body aircraft — except for major flagship routes like New York to Los Angeles or New York to Miami — there's one flight a day between New York and Mexico City flown by a modern 787 Dreamliner. Aeromexico — which operates a joint venture with Delta — has one flight a day with the new, luxurious plane. The airline says it uses the Dreamliner to offer a premium experience on the important route, and to increase capacity. I flew in bus...

Weekly Roundup, Friday 26 October, 2018

A view of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, part of our second Land cruise itinerary next June (see below). Good morning It has been a wild and crazy week, but have I got a lot to show you for the week that was.  We now have details of our June 2019 UK touring online. I’m using the “land cruise” concept first offered in this year’s Christmas land cruise (still have the cancelled couple’s $500 credit if anyone wants to take advantage of this and join us) again.

Longest nonstop flights from the US

It’s hard to say what’s played a bigger role in the expansion of ultra-long-haul flights the past couple of decades: Engineering advances that allow for greater fuel economy, and thus longer ranges, or on-demand movies at your seat. Sure, running 16-hour trips from the West Coast to the Middle East might be physically possible, but without an easy way to watch Paddington 2, Bad Moms, and an entire season of Big Bang Theory, would anyone really want to take those flights? Probably not. So than...

The Rise of Consumer Activism in an Era of Distrust

Consumer Activism: Just Getting StartedSince the inauguration of president Trump, we've seen protests seemingly organized on a dime whether it be The Women's March, The March for Life or the recent immigration protests at local airports. These actions, however will not be limited to the protests in public but also in protests of the purse or at least the #hashtag. Case in point—when Uber announced that it would be removing surge pricing to pick up the slack caused by NYC cab drivers who joined i...

Time for Trump to Cut the Prince Loose?

Phoenix has the best airport food

I’m not a Phoenix homer . I understand Phoenix is hot and sprawling, and while it definitely has its charms, it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. I don’t live there or visit the city much, nor do I have friends at the airport I’m trying to help out. I do, however, fly a lot — about 200,000 miles a year — and I have layovers in Phoenix pretty regularly. I can safely say that in addition to golf and desert landscaping, there’s one thing Phoenix does better than anyplace else in the country, an...

“The Deuce” Stinks. A Rant.

I’m a hair’s-breadth away from declaring that “The Deuce,” HBO’s Sunday night “prestige drama” about flesh-peddling and pornos in Times Square and 42nd Street in the mid-70s, is an exercise in trolling, some kind of meta-level commentary on the lack of drama, characterization, or stakes in, y’know, pornos. It’s almost easier to believe that David Simon — the creator of “The Wire” FFS! — is engaged in some kind of multimillion-dollar performance art than that he’s presiding over a writing room as...
