  • Gun violence: America's new pastime?

    Gun violence: America's new pastime?
    Given that some sort of horrific, headline-grabbing school shooting now occurs in the United States at a rate of once a week, it's hard to argue against the idea that gun violence is as much a national pastime as baseball. Unlike baseball, however, the...
  • If Trump sign is an insult, return fire

    If Trump sign is an insult, return fire
    There are several things I dislike about the giant "TRUMP" sign that Donald Trump, the honorable archduke of Egotown, affixed to the lower torso of his Chicago skyscraper. 1) It reminds me that Donald Trump exists. 2) It triggers my gag reflex, and...

    Jon Stewart weighs in on Trump sign
    The material was too good to pass up. Comedian Jon Stewart weighed in on the Donald Trump sign debate last night. Trump has been publicly feuding with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel over a new sign with his name on the side of the 96-story building he...
  • Billy Idol and 'The Powerpuff Girls' return

    "WHAT MAKES a work literature, and who gets to decide?" That is the question posited in Evgenia Peretz's big Vanity Fair take-out (take down?) of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Donna Tartt and her remarkably successful, massive and controversial novel...

    Ewan McGregor to star in film of Philip Roth's 'American Pastoral'
    A film version of Philip Roth's 1997 "American Pastoral" has been in the works for ages -- since about the time it won the Pulitzer Prize. But it's getting close.  It's got a director, a script, and a star: Ewan McGregor. McGregor will play the novel's ...
  • Thirty years

    I was, of course, on the copy desk that night.  We had closed the first edition of The Cincinnati Enquirer, and the phone rang. It was Kathleen, saying she was in labor and there were a couple of guys at the front door asking about the apartment...
  • 'Dead Man's Cell Phone' well worth answering at Colonial Players

    'Dead Man's Cell Phone' well worth answering at Colonial Players
    It's doubtful anyone attending Colonial Players' 65th season closer would react with "been there, done that" to playwright Sarah Ruhl's "Dead Man's Cell Phone." Having enjoyed a bowl of lobster bisque in a cafe, a young woman answers the ringing...
  • Lewis Katz death is a blow to news media culture

    Lewis Katz death is a blow to news media culture
    In 1972, Philadelphia's leading newspaper was based in a mostly windowless building that looked like and had the atmosphere of a huge mausoleum. That was the year I somehow landed a job with The Associated Press, which had its Philadelphia office in a...
  • The future of the NAACP [Commentary]

    The future of the NAACP [Commentary]
    While Cornell William Brooks may be a surprising choice to lead the NAACP, it takes neither an Einstein nor a soothsayer to know what challenges lie ahead for the clergyman-lawyer little known beyond his social justice network in New Jersey. Three...

     Robert Ames and the CIA's history of back-channel talks with 'the bad guys'
    When reports surfaced in Washington this month that the Obama administration has been holding secret back-channel talks with Hamas over the last six months, the denials came swiftly. "These assertions are completely untrue," proclaimed State Department...
