I promise not to forget all the little Cheez-Its who helped me on my way up.

A police officer stops an erratically moving car. The face of the driver, a woman, is bruised and swollen. So begins this spot-on story by @EllenBarryNYT about the continuing scourge of domestic violence. An important read: The Woman on the Bridge.

This video, produced by The Outlaw Ocean Project's Raphaela Morais and featuring animation from @clay_rodery and videography from @edouphoto & @FabioNasciment_, is one of the most powerful pieces to emerge from our reporting on #AliouCande and #AlMabani.

A stunning, harrowing story about the secretive and brutal prisons used to keep migrants from reaching Europe. While reporting it out, @ian_urbina and his Outlaw Ocean Project colleagues were held for several days in Libya - and he was beaten.

My father-in-law, a good and decent and witty man, died Friday in his home of 62 years; he was 94. His five children no doubt extended his life by springing him from a rehab facility at the very start of the pandemic last year. I wrote about it:

My father-in-law, Joe Trinity, has died at 94. The overwhelming response to his death tells you how profound an impact one public school teacher in Somewhere, N.J. - a director of dozens of high school plays over 34 years - can have on so very many lives.

With dinner over and the dishes left for someone else to clean, it’s time to sit back and slip into unconsciousness while pondering whether these coupons, which technically expired on Dec. 31, 1988, are still redeemable. 5/6

Now for the main course. Tonight: Scallops Exceptional. Remember to stir in the Velveeta and the sherry once the scallops are tender - but easy on that sherry! (Here’s a tip: In our house, we strictly keep to one long swig for each scallop in the pan.) 4/6

For the munchies between appetizers and dinner, there’s always Fruit Cozies! This recipe had me at “Combine ham, raisins, coconut, carrots and mayonnaise.” Is your mouth watering too? 3/6

For an appetizer, everyone knows that nothing blends better than shellfish and processed cheese spread. Crab Grande? Shrimp Delight? How about Creamy Clam Dip! But don’t forget to soften that 8-ounce brick of PHILADELPHIA BRAND Cream Cheese! 2/6

It’s the holiday season at the Barry household! And so, while everyone is still relatively sentient, we reach once again for our culinary bible from 1987: “Creative Cooking With Velveeta.” 1/6

The first time I ever saw my mother weep was 58 years ago today. An enduring image for those of my generation: Seeing your mother hunched before a black-and-white television, watching the news reports from Dallas, face wet with tears.
