Instead of Killing the US Postal System, Let’s Expand It

Instead of Killing the US Postal System, Let’s Expand It

The postal service is a core democratic infrastructure—and it’s time we remember that and fund it appropriately. United States Postal Service mail carrier Frank Colon, 59, delivers a package in El Paso on April 30, 2020. (Paul Ratje / AFP via Getty Images) The postal system has been a key public infrastructure since the dawn of the US republic. Today, the United States Postal Service faces an existential threat as President Trump blocks a desperately needed emergency loan. Instead of defunding and privatizing the postal system, now’s an opportune moment to reimagine its purpose and...

How Gayness Changed During My Lifetime

How Gayness Changed During My Lifetime

Through some chemical quirk, I was born gay. Though inborn, this characteristic did not appear at birth. Sexuality is like height rather than eye color: I was born with blue eyes, but my height and sexuality did not reveal themselves immediately. I was meant to be tall, and meant to be attracted to other boys; but when I was a child, I was no more gay than I was tall. Since children of my generation were assumed to be heterosexual, you had to challenge the assumption—become gay in the eyes of others—and it was not until I told people, in late adolescence (around the same time I became...

This week, with the media and public’s attention focused on the pandemic, Trump’s Orwellian EPA announced an extraordinary rollback of Obama-era . In particular, it allowed coal plants to send skyward vastly increased amounts of mercury, arsenic, and other heavy metals, despite all the evidence suggesting that this will increase the number of heart attacks, acute asthma episodes, and other potentially fatal health consequences.The new rules replace strict quality standards with that,...

Kaytranada Captures an Entire Party’s Worth of Sound on ‘Bubba’

Kaytranada Captures an Entire Party’s Worth of Sound on ‘Bubba’

By using this website, you consent to our use of cookies. For more information, visit our XThere aren’t many albums that you can play anywhere and even fewer that manage to sound appropriate whatever time they happen to be played. What’s rarer still: an artist managing to sound right under both of those limiting conditions. The Haitian Canadian producer Louis Kevin Celestin—better known by his stage name, Kaytranada—has managed this feat twice, first on his studio debut, 99.9% (2016), and then on his recently released (and second) full-length, Bubba.Kaytranada’s sound, percussive as it is,...

One might expect these to fit as tightly as possible around the feet and ankles.

The Democrats Have a Winning Message: “Stop Dangerous Extremists”

The Democrats Have a Winning Message: “Stop Dangerous Extremists”

“Trump and his allies are a clear and present danger to American democracy.”—the Honorable J. Michael Luttigpeaking slowly but powerfully, Judge Michael Luttig last week may have handed Democrats what has so far eluded them: a winning message for the midterm elections. Given all the revelations to date from the January 6 hearings—as well as five-plus years of Republican malevolence—Democrats can campaign this fall against a GOP full of “dangerous extremists” and run by “dangerous extremists.” The evidence is voluminous, though rarely is it thematically connected. Campaigning against...
