Today’s The New Yorker teases us with the following menu of articles. We’d link it but our monthly allotment has expired. Yes, pillartopost.org daily blog, is cheap but in pandemic era “our non-advertisement allowed” policy keeps us poor. Swim around The New Yorker website [click here] for the articles below—Worth the effort.
Today's effort contains:
--By Ronan Farrow: “How a CIA Coverup Targeted a Whistle-blower.” When a Justice Department lawyer exposed the agency’s secret role in drug cases, leadership in the intelligence community retaliated.
--By Anna Louie Sussman: “The Loneliness of the Pro-Choice Republican Woman.” Support for abortion rights was once seen as consistent with conservatism. But mobilizing the religious wing of the GOP left some of the party’s most loyal members out in the cold.
--Q&A by Isaac Chotiner: “Noam Chomsky Believes Trump is “the Worst Criminal in Human History.” The activist and linguist has serious concerns about the future of American democracy. --By Susan B. Glasser: “Denialism and Deflection in the Final Days of the Trump Campaign.” The President is ending his re-election bid with scandals that call into question the legitimacy of next week’s vote.
Whew. And, that is just one day of a daily newsletter that’s free most of the time for the offering.
