Anyway the health insurance thing gets me every time. I cannot imagine being a contractor and finding out after years that yes this available—just only to those deemed important enough

A union does not make it “impossible to get rid of poor performers”! It just means people can't be fired on a whim

It is so dismaying to see the argument that a union would create a culture “where mediocrity reigns” from New Yorker writers—esp when maybe the only publication more prestigious is the NYT which is a keystone of the Guild https://t.co/PqBAy2LxJm

When labor costs go up--i.e. when workers demand a livable wage--companies like Chipotle claim they are forced to "pass on" costs to the consumer. I wrote about why that narrative is nonsense. https://t.co/AOcIGGKJQ2

I’ll be splitting the prize money between everyone who worked on my pieces last year—every editor, copy editor, fact checker, artist, and more. Even when individuals win Pulitzers, their work depends on a community. I want to honor mine.

Seeing the return of the novel formula that is take a bunch of scientific concepts, throw in an obscure historical figure, and weave it into a "meditation"

Funny how price increases are blamed on modest wage increases instead of executive compensation https://t.co/zUn9EhuQhK

Only in the context of our radically diminished expectations for existing civic infrastructure can vanity projects like Little Island can look like public goods. My essay for @thebafflermag. https://t.co/QlUHoLhRUO

Why have Hillary Clinton and Newt Gingrich both written novels about government agents rushing to personally take down a deadly terrorist? And why, after years of publishing wonderfully sexy fiction, has Stacey Abrams opted to essentially do the same? https://t.co/b5xcjWuuUx

Several women say Blake Bailey, Philip Roth's biographer, sexually harassed and groped them while teaching at ODU. One professor says he tormented her for 2 years and only stopped when she pulled a knife on him in 2012. He didn't leave until 2016. https://t.co/tWW2aCAdtn
