The Russo Brothers’ Mysterious Amazon Show is a “Global Spy Series” With International Spin-Offs Coming [TCA 2019]

During their summer Television Critics Association last year, Amazon announced a new series from Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo…and didn’t offer any information about it.

Today, Amazon revealed more details about the Russo Brothers show – though still not a title. Here are three things we now know about the Russo Brothers’ new Amazon s...

Bizarre pre-dawn experience...

After writing the last post, about a WaPo column by Alyssa Rosenberg, I clicked on my "Alyssa Rosenberg" tag. It only had 2 other posts. One, from a year ago, was to another WaPo column ("Hillary Clinton and I are done"), but the other was from 2009, about whether long novels are still worth reading. It was a clip from a Bloggingheads diavlog, Rosenberg with Matt Yglesias, and I needed to fix some code, so I clicked through to the Bloggingheads website. I saw that there was a new diavlog with Bo...

The Death of God, The Descent of Man, The Death of Humanity

Is there any figure in all Western history more ironic than Friedrich Nietzsche, he who proclaimed the death of God? In mock tragic voice, his Madman even pretended to mourn it: God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of at...

Argument analysis: What would John Marshall do?

“[I]n McCulloch vs. Maryland, the court said that in general we don’t want to be micromanaging all the details of state taxation,” attorney Lawrence Rosenberg told the justices at the end of Monday’s oral argument in Dawson v. Steager. That’s not the way that McCulloch is usually remembered—far more famous is Chief Justice John Marshall’s statement in the 1819 case equating “the power to tax” with “the power to destroy.” But in any event, it was apparent by the end of the argument that the curre...

Southern California synagogues reconsider security measures after Pittsburgh shooting

Most of Daniel Rosenberg’s family moved from Eastern Europe to Pittsburgh in the early part of the 20th Century as refugees, fleeing the pogroms when violent anti-Semitic street mobs mercilessly attacked Jewish families. “They thought Pittsburgh was paradise, that they were safe there,” said the music producer who grew up, attended synagogue and had his bar mitzvah in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood, a well known Jewish enclave.

Will chainsaw horror add fuel to immigration fight?

It was a horrific scene: a screaming woman running from her house — her upper torso sliced by a chainsaw. Her husband, the alleged assailant, came out “showered in blood,” a neighbor said.

A chainsaw attack may be the stuff of slasher films, but the scene in Whittier last week had one more element that has made it national news: the man accused o...
