a piece of new york is gone: pete hamill, rest in peace

A piece of New York City died this week. Pete Hamill, a legendary New York journalist and possibly the last of a breed, died yesterday at age 85.  Obituaries describe him as a "tabloid poet" or "tabloid hero". If he hadn't existed, perhaps Raymond Chandler would have invented him.  It seems only fitting to let the Daily News tell his story.Legendary journalist and author Pete Hamill, a tabloid hero and teller of New York tales, dead at 85Pete Hamill, the Brooklyn-born bard of the five borou...

Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste: “An Instant American Classic”

Well, this is a hell of a book review by NY Times critic Dwight Garner about Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste (which I am starting the second it comes out tomorrow). A critic shouldn’t often deal in superlatives. He or she is here to explicate, to expand context and to make fine distinctions. But sometimes a reviewer will shout as if into a mountaintop megaphone. I recently came upon William Kennedy’s review of “One Hundred Years of Solitude,” which he called “the first piece of literature since the Bo...

With Loan Money Gone, Restaurants Are At Mercy Of Virus

NEW YORK (AP) — The check has arrived and beleaguered restaurant owners across America are looking down on their empty wallets. Government coronavirus loans in the spring helped eating establishments rehire laid-off employees and ride out the pandemic’s initial surge and wave of shutdown orders. But that Paycheck Protection Program money has now been spent at many restaurants, leaving them in the same precarious position they were in during outbreak’s early days: Thousands of restaurants are bei...

John F. Kennedy Library Foundation: The New, New Frontier

“Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.” Those are the words we need to hear today—even if they were spoken in the 1960s. President Kennedy believed that each of us are responsible for building a better future for our country. And the New New Frontier campaign captures that spirit through his words, tone and forward-looking message. On July 15, (in tandem with the 60th anniversary of the New Frontier speech) JFK won’...

GOP Sen. Kennedy Says Opponents Of Reopening Schools ‘Can Kiss My A**’

Final Stat Pack for October Term 2019

A Supreme Court term unlike any other has finally come to an end. In March, some observers thought the term would end early after the court shut its doors and postponed oral arguments — the first time since the 1919 Spanish Flu outbreak that the court closed due to a pandemic. Instead, the term lasted longer than usual, extending well into July for the first time in decades. And in May, the court heard remote arguments over the telephone with a public live audio feed for the first time ever. Tho...

Empirical SCOTUS: Precedent: Which justices practice what they preach

Although Supreme Court justices are by no means bound by their past decisions, they often respect them, for a variety of reasons. Justice Elena Kagan offered her reasons for remaining faithful to precedent in her dissent from last term’s decision in Knick v. Township of Scott, which overturned the court’s precedent on the issue of eminent domain in the state law context in Williamson County Regional Planning Comm’n v.
