Every time I learn a new fact about how US government agencies treat hungry babies and their parents I feel like tearing my hair out. (via @JessGrose )

For the onscreen moms in “The Baby,” “Umma” and “Lamb” — and for an ascendant class of sardonic mom influencers — the source of psychological torture is motherhood itself, our critic, @amandahess , writes.

I wrote about the many mothers of recent horror films, their relationship to the permanently bedraggled mom influencer persona, and the limits of framing motherhood as torture

I wrote about BBL recovery houses, the cottage industry that has been booming in Miami, supported by the rapidly increasing popularity of the BBL, for The New York Times Magazine. Doctors I spoke to described Miami as ground zero of the BBL boom.

The Philip Guston retrospective postponed from 2020 due images evoking the Klan is finally opening. All's well that ends well? Or a foreboding sign? @rpogrebin and I explore

I've been obsessing over private equity — how it works and how it affects workers and communities — for a few years now, so I'm very excited to be writing a book about it!

“As a young person and a woman, I’m expected to perform hope for people, without having the luxury of expressing my rage. But I feel like rage can be hopeful as well.” — Selina Fillinger, talking about her first Broadway play, "POTUS," with @amandahess

The @nytimes is pressuring us to return to the office in June. But RTO must be agreed on with @NYTimesGuild as part of our contract. I hope management comes to the table today ready to fairly negotiate on all the issues that matter to us, including wages, benefits and RTO!!!

The @nytimes wants us all to return to the office. As someone who enjoys working from 620, I also know that this must be agreed on with @NYTimesGuild . I'm asking mgmt to negotiate in good faith on all the issues, including real-dollar wage increases.
