Did Republican tax law spur the rich to flee blue states, including California?

As taxpayers prepare their first returns affected by the Republican federal tax overhaul, New York’s governor this week put hard numbers behind the harm he says it’s causing to his and other high-tax states: the rich are fleeing and income tax receipts are falling, costing the Empire State more than $14 billion. California is sharing New York’s pain from what Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the GOP’s “economic civil war” on Democrat-run “blue” states, with the Golden State’s December and January person...

Bezos published several emails from the National Enquirer's chief content officer Dylan Howard and from Jon Fine, an attorney representing AMI — one of which lists compromising photographs of Bezos that the supermarket tabloid says...

Pat Steir Profiled in New Yorker

The New Yorker profiles artist Pat Steir’s current show at the Barnes Foundation, noting the artist’s chance-based approach and her pieces spread throughout the institution.  “It’s a joy to let a painting paint itself,” she says. “It takes away all kinds of responsibility, because I can come in in the morning and say, ‘Oh, look what the […]

Why James Baldwin Is This Century’s Essential Voice, Too

Back in 2015, I wanted to write an essay for The Message (where I was working at the time) about James Baldwin. At that time, it seemed to me, Baldwin was everywhere, but somewhat below the radar; everyone was talking about him, but nobody seemed to notice that everyone was talking about him, or about the things he talked and wrote about. But The Message turned over its writing staff and quickly shut down, and that was the end of that. Four years later, Baldwin is not below the radar. Baldwi...

Here’s Who Else Was At That Bizarre WH Meeting With Trump And Ginni Thomas

It’s rare for a congressional aide to have her own mini-profile on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s website outlining her ties to extremist groups. But such is the case for Connie Hair, chief of staff to Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) and one of the participants at what the New York Times reported was a tense White House meeting last week between President Trump and far-right activists concerned about the threat posed by transgender people and women serving in the military. The Times article focu...

Do Personality Tests Really Mean Anything? 5 Things to Keep in Mind

Are you an Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging personality (INFJ)? Maybe you’re an ENTJ or INTP? Don’t know what I’m talking about? You obviously haven’t checked your Myers Briggs personality type. We love a label in our society. It’s so much easier to identify where we belong, whom we belong with and why when we all have tidy labels to our names. Whether it’s the vagueness of your horoscope, the procrastinating fun of the  What Hogwarts House are you?  quiz , or the slightly more credib...

"[Roger] Stone, a self-described dirty trickster who began his career as a campaign aide for Richard M. Nixon and has a tattoo of Nixon on his back..."

"... has long maintained that he had no connection to Russia’s attempts to disrupt the 2016 presidential election. He sometimes seemed to taunt American law enforcement agencies, daring them to find hard evidence to link him to the Russian meddling campaign. His brash behavior made him less of a subject of news media scrutiny than other current and former aides to President Trump — like the character in a whodunit who readers immediately dismiss as too obvious to have committed the crime. But th...

2018 Was a Banner Year for Algorithmic Prediction

Harvard’s Jill Lepore, one of the most fascinating and actually humorous historical writers, has superb explanatory insight on algorithmic prediction. That’s not a surprise. She approaches history from perspectives that have never crossed this historian’s mind--and does it with a lot of verve. She’s one of the few with a steady hand when the rest of us are lurching around with churning stomachs about artificial intelligence and moronic politicians. With two algorithmic geniuses in my own famil...

Short Stories: The 12 Best Collections of 2018

None This year, 2018, has been among the best in recent times for short story collections, especially by women writers and writers of color (for example: these five 2018 debut collections from Short Stories: American writers of South Asian origin.) Subjective and incomplete as lists like this one may be, they do show that there's a widely growing range of short story types and genres being published and that collections are getting a lot more respect and attention than ever before. Long may th...

11 Esther Perel quotes that set the record straight on love and sex

None I discovered Belgian psychotherapist Esther Perel when she was featured in the NY Times in 2014. Only then did I backtrack and read her 2006 bestseller, Mating in Captivity.

How the CIA Helped Shape the Creative Writing Scene in America

Image by Arielle Fragassi, via Flickr Commons In May of 1967,” writes Patrick Iber at The Awl, “a former CIA officer named Tom Braden published a confession in the Saturday Evening Post under the headline, ‘I’m glad the CIA is ‘immoral.’” With the hard-boiled tone one might expect from a spy, but the candor one may not, Braden revealed the Agency’s funding and support of all kinds of individuals and activities, including, perhaps most controversially, in the arts. Against objections that so man...

Michael Cohen, Trump's loyal fixer turned tell-all accuser

He was the personal lawyer to Donald Trump and the epitome of loyalty -- a man who said he would "take a bullet" for his boss. The 52-year-old New Yorker has gone from being one of Trump's most trusted lieutenants over the course of 12 years to telling authorities everything he knows about the former real estate magnate's business affairs. On Wednesday, Cohen will be sentenced for campaign finance law violations and tax and bank fraud offenses.

'Why go to work?': A 25-year-old New Yorker gets $4,000 a month in donations from his social-media followers and says he makes more money livestreaming his days than he did working a traditional job

The New York Times profiled a 25-year-old New Yorker named Jovan Hill who makes a living livestreaming his daily life. Hill films himself ranting about pop culture, eating, smoking weed, and talking to friends — and many people pay him for it. He often shares his financial concerns with his followers, who donate upward of $4,000 a month to him through subscriptions to his livestreaming channels and through Venmo donations. When you have hundreds of thousands of loyal social-media followers w...

Ricky Jay, Famed Character Actor and Master Magician, Has Died at 72

Ricky Jay is one of those actors who you’d see popping up in the likes of The Prestige, Mystery Men and Boogie Nights, not a household name, but surely one of those people who made audience members go, “Hey, it’s that guy.” But outside of his career on film and television, Ricky Jay was a masterful magician, dubbed “the most gifted sleight of hand artist alive” by The New Yorker. Sadly, Jay has performed his last trick, as the character actor and illusionist has died at age 72. News of Ricky ...
