The Canny Valley of Cooking

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 13:35:00 GMT2017-06-26T13:35:00Z

The meal spread out cleanly on my plate, not quite Instagram-ready, but still pleasant enough: hunks of cauliflower perfumed with a floral array of cardamom and coriander, a thick stew of lentils, delicately diced lamb shoulder tossed with translucent slivers of fennel. Though I was eating at home, I’d put almost no effort into the dish. Ten minutes before I sat down, its components were still contained in three vacuum-sealed bags. I did little more than toss them into a boiling pot of water for a few minutes, slice them open, and squeeze them onto the plate.

“The Most Important Unknown Person in D.C.”

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 09:56:00 GMT2017-06-26T09:56:00Z

Two of the most consequential figures in the Trump legal soap opera have been a pair of Justice Department officials whose names the public wouldn’t typically know. The first is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has run into one politically charged dilemma after another since being thrust into the role of supervising the FBI’s Russia investigation. The other is Rosenstein’s predecessor as deputy attorney general, Sally Yates, who became an icon of the anti-Trump resistance before being fired by the president in the wake of her refusal to allow the Justice Department to defend Trump’s travel ban.

Those who know Scott Schools say he worships the DOJ.

The Year of the Tick

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 09:48:00 GMT2017-06-26T09:48:00Z

The ticks have arrived. So many, so tiny, so hungry. Friends from New York to Wisconsin are freaking out, pulling ticks off themselves daily, asking me how to keep these blood-sucking, disease-spreading menaces away. They turn to me because I’m a tick fiend: I’ve interviewed dozens of tick researchers and been to tick-borne disease conferences; I’ve covered the tick beat for Nature and Scientific American. I even started a tick Facebook group (called Tick Talk, of course). A scientist once told me to “think like a tick,” and that’s exactly what I do, because I live in one of the most tick-dense, Lyme disease–plagued regions of the United States, and I want to keep my family safe.

This year is likely to be a doozy for Lyme disease.

Bloody Mose and the War of Jenkins’ Ear

You may use the comment thread on this page to discuss the 277th anniversary of the Siege of Fort Mose, an action also known as Bloody Mose, during the War of Jenkins’ Ear. We also welcome you to use the thread to pursue a freewheeling, inherently off-topic discussion.

Supreme Court Breakfast Table

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 01:36:57 GMT2017-06-26T01:36:57Z

I asked both Chief Justice William Rehnquist and Justice Sandra Day O’Connor their thoughts about how justices should think about when to retire from the Supreme Court. I interviewed both of them publicly at Duke. At dinner at my house the night before my 2003 interview with Justice O’Connor, I went over the matters I was planning to raise the next morning and asked her if there were any questions she did not want me to ask. She hesitated, then said, “Don’t ask about retirement. It’s too sensitive and anything I say might be misconstrued.” She announced she was leaving the court just more than two years later.
