Solution: Send Hillary to Memphis, Armed & Drugged

Written by NY Press on . Posted in Posts

True it is that Hillary Clinton’s senate campaign will mean a lot of aggravation, at taxpayer expense no less (“MUGGER,” 6/16). But in a way I hope she runs, because it will provide some much-needed entertainment of the kind that has been in relatively short supply since her lying husband was given a free ticket out of jail by his [&hellip

Bush On the Move; Grim Talk About Talk

Written by Russ Smith on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

The Beltway Pundits Pout Wouldn’t it be extraordinary if the media elite put their cards on the table and admitted now whom they’ll be advocating in the 2000 presidential election? It’s really no secret. The New York Times, in its news columns and editorials, is for Al Gore (and Hillary Clinton for Senate); The Wall Street Journal favors Steve Forbes; [&hellip

Jesus vs. Freud

Written by John Strausbaugh on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

Mental health professionals tend to react to Seth Farber’s ideas with the sort of shock and outrage with which heresy is condemned by faithful religious types. “Don’t touch this book with a twenty foot pole,” one of them wrote his publisher on reading the manuscript that would become his latest book, Unholy Madness (InterVarsity Press, 162 pages, $12.99). “I suspect [&hellip

Run Lola Run

Written by Godfrey Cheshire on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Run Lola Run directed by Tom Tykwer She Do Run Run Myself, I’d rather not. Perhaps the most interesting thing about Run Lola Run is the chance it offers to embrace two diametrically opposed ideas simultaneously. Can it really be smart and vapid, pregnant with meaning and barren of same all at once? Well, yes. And not only does that contradictoriness [&hellip

Lovers on the Bridge

Written by Armond White on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Lovers on the Bridge directed by Leos Carax France’s Generation Vexed Almost a decade overdue, Leos Carax’s Les Amants de Pont-Neuf finally begins a regular theatrical run in America under the title Lovers on the Bridge.

Celebrate Father’s Day While You Still Can

Written by Lionel Tiger on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

There is of course hardly any more dramatic sex difference in human nature than between the minute or two it might take a man who’s a fast learner to become a father and the nine-months-plus-often-20-years that can be the woman’s outcome. This is such a startling distinction that virtually every social system has had to figure out a way to [&hellip

Snapshots of Barcelona’s Barrio Chino

Written by Christian Viveros-Faune on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

Barcelona! The word has long had the power to make my breath go shallow. The pedestrian pulse of its tight, teeming streets; the unexpected sweep of nouveau facades lifting off like birds’ wings; the myriad youthful faces, embarrassingly pretty in their Old World sophistication; the dry African winds pulling into this tidy, voluptuous corner of the Mediterranean; the elegant [&hellip

Spinning Affirmative Action at the New York Times

Written by Andrey Slivka on . Posted in Breaking News, Posts

The New York Times‘ consensus-manufacturing machine is gearing up for the 2000 presidential race, and with mixed results. First there was Kevin Sack’s long May 8 story about George W. Bush’s business dealings—an inconclusive piece that served only to highlight the extent to which Bush possesses the same faults that other unimaginative sons of mind boggling privilege do. More to the [&hellip
