"…the U.S. has to be careful. If our strategy depends on Sunnis doing the fighting to clear Mosul and Ramadi — and, as near as I can tell, that is the strategy — then you have to be careful that Sunnis don’t perceive the U.S. to be operating arm in arm with Iran or with Iranian-backed Shiite militias that Abadi — Prime Minister Abadi is using in Iraq, so that, in effect, we’re fronting for Iran.

That’s a recipe for more Sunnis moving toward ISIS and away from the coalition." — DAVID IGNATIUS, The Washington Post
New victories by the Islamic State in Syria, Iraq and Libya are fueling debate and criticism in Washington over the U.S. strategy and reliance on airstrikes against the militant group. Gwen Ifill talks to David Ignatius of The Washington Post and Feisal Istrabadi, Iraq’s former deputy UN ambassador, about the complicated challenges facing the U.S.

"Freed from the dual responsibilities of Draper and Whitman, Mr. Hamm spoke on Monday evening about the end of “Mad Men,” and what that last sequence meant to him. These are edited excerpts from that conversation."
“My take is that, the next day, he wakes up in this beautiful place, and has this serene moment of understanding, and realizes who he is.”

"Every dog owner thinks their dog is the friendliest, greatest dog in the world, and that everyone else should love their dog the way they do. But as a dog owner, let me let you in on a little secret: I don’t like your dog. In fact, I’m a little afraid of other people’s dogs. And I say that as someone active in the animal rescue community. But I don’t want your strange dog jumping on me, running at me, or otherwise interacting with me without my permission."

I agree. There are a lot of ill-mannered dog owners in my neighborhood. They give everyone else a bad name.

How Post and Courier's Pulitzer-winning series forced South Carolina to face its domestic violence problem

"Judges called the work 'a riveting series that probed why South Carolina is among the deadliest states in the union for women and put the issue of what to do about it on the state’s agenda.'”

"As a poet and professor who spends much of her waking and dream life engaged in and obsessing over written and spoken acts of language, I have for decades found sanctuary in what a colleague of mine calls the necessary “other art.” For me, the “other art” is gardening. I’m not a particularly gifted or ambitious grower of plants, but as the descendant of generations of farmers, I find the nonverbal pleasures of digging, sowing, transplanting and helping things grow to be a meditative counterpoint to the other exigencies of my life."
I tried everything I could think of, but I finally learned that there really isn’t anything a hungry herd won’t eat.

"…I don’t think the show was saying that real change is impossible. In fact, nearly everyone around Don changed quite a lot, and in ways that ring true for people living through decades—a real rarity in a TV show. Pete and Peggy and Joan, in particular, barely resemble the people they were at the beginning of the show. They’re stronger, clearer, and also more ethical. Their relationships are authentic. (Roger not so much, but that’s why we love Roger.) But if Don Draper is as much a symbol as a person, maybe that’s the point. He’s a perfect avatar for the cultural anxieties around him, from avoidance of death (Lucky Strike) to fear of family dissolution (Kodak)."
In the “Mad Men” finale, Don Draper finally proved himself as the show’s protagonist, making his place at center stage seem not just inevitable and logical but also deeply original. Credit Courtesy AMC

"Shepherded by a team of art handlers, Picasso’s “Le Tricorne,” once a fixture at the Four Seasons restaurant, was unfurled on Sunday at the New-York Historical Society in Manhattan."
In an hourslong operation of practiced precision, “Le Tricorne,” a stage curtain painted by the Spanish master, arrived in its new home at the New-York Historical Society.

"As for writing fiction, well, you don’t have any primary text, of course. You have to create that, and yet the struggle seems to be to uncover things by language, to find out what you mean and feel by the sheer effort of writing it down. By expression you discover what you wish to express or what can be expressed, by you. Things that are vague in the beginning have to be made concrete. Often, what you thought was the creative idea ahead of you vanishes or becomes something else."

“We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, and we travel to be lost,” the writer Ray Bradbury said in a 1990 interview with Rob Couteau. “There’s nothing better than to walk around Paris and not know where in hell you are.”

"Not only was jasmine chocolate a testament to the duke’s [Cosimo III] wealth and the abilities of the grand ducal spezieria, it was also a symbol of Medici taste, refinement, and power. Jasmine chocolate quickly became popular at the Florentine court and a closely guarded state secret. Cosimo III forbade anyone from writing or publishing the recipe and this refined beverage could only be consumed at court or in the noblest of houses."
By 1708 the Medici grand ducal “spezieria,” or pharmacy, had grown into a complex of eleven rooms located in the main ducal residence, the Palazzo Pitti. It included a medical laboratory for the production of alchemical medicines, a pharmacy for the production of herbals, syrups and powders, ...

"Like many young physicians of this era, Koch was struck by an intense fascination with all things microscopic, a fixation some medical critics derided as “bacteriomania.” Unlike his senior colleagues who ascribed epidemics to the contamination of the air with foul or unpleasant emanations, a notion referred to as the miasmatic theory, Dr. Koch sided with those who would become the scientific revolutionaries of their day by asserting and ultimately proving that specific microbes were the cause of specific infectious diseases."
Robert Koch’s greatest evening unfolded 133 years ago when he solved the riddle that had plagued doctors for centuries: what, exactly, caused tuberculosis?
