MILLENNIAL VOICE--The other morning, I woke to a bombardment of millennial tropes. They came from my timelines and news feeds, my inbox and the small square TV that I was watching on the treadmill at the gym. Like little catapulted rocks:
VIEW FROM HERE-Whether his opponents are willing to recognize it or not, President George Herbert Walker Bush lived an extraordinary life.
FACT FINDING-Even as the special counsel has amassed more and more evidence about the Trump presidential campaign and Russia, the president's allies have proclaimed the scandal a fabrication.
FUTURE SHOCKER-I attended Donald Trump’s funeral today in a half-empty Washington Cathedral, curious to learn how the 45th president, who of course resigned in disgrace in 2019, would be remembered by those who came to mourn him.
ESSAY-On a muggy summer day, I happened upon two twentysomething Chinese men bickering over the best angle for a selfie in front of the memorial wall at the Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum.
OTHER WORDS--Our death rituals for public figures are evolving.
