“She found a clever way of bringing the issue up that wouldn’t be offensive to the right-leaning members of the jury...I think you can see from the verdict that Dunikoski made the right call.” @RichardFausset on the prosecutor in the Arbery case.

“Would you like to hear the score?” he asked. Of course, the answer was yes. “You got some time?” he asked, before laughing loudly, with a sense of mischief: “It’s from a show called ‘Fat Chance’!” @MichaelPaulson interviews Sondheim days before his death

Kushner’s inquiries to MidEast sovereign wealth funds have raised Q’s about the ethics of seeking to raise large sums from officials he had dealt w/on behalf of the US government, especially given the possibility of Trump running for president in 2024.

Future historians: Stephen Sondheim was real. Yes, he wrote Tony & Maria AND Sweeney Todd AND Bobby AND George & Dot AND Fosca AND countless more. Some may theorize Shakespeare's works were by committee but Steve was real & he was here & he laughed SO loud at shows & we loved him

I have a friend, devoted to his works, who referred to him always as Mr. Sondheim. And so will I this evening on just hearing that Mr. Sondheim has left us.

This story should still be made into a movie — but it should star Mr. Broadwater and his decades of work to clear his own name.

Detailed notes and memos compiled by those who interacted with Jeffrey Epstein in jail show how he repeatedly assured them he had much to live for, while also hinting that he was increasingly despondent. By @BenWeiserNYT @MattGoldstein26 @SteveEder and me
