*  fatal vision - Reluctant Habits
One of the mistakes often made by those who immerse themselves in Janet Malcolm's The Journalist and the Murderer is believing that MacDonald's guilt or innocence is what matters most. But Malcolm is really exploring how journalistic opportunity and impetuous judgment can lead any figure to be roundly condemned in the court of public opinion. Malcolm's book was written before the Internet blew apart much of the edifice separating advertising and editorial with native advertising and sponsored articles, but this ongoing ethical dilemma matters ever more in our age of social media and citizen journalism, especially when Spike Lee impulsively tweets the wrong address of George Zimmerman (and gets sued because of the resultant harassment) and The New York Post publishes a front page cover of two innocent men (also resulting in a lawsuit) because Reddit happened to believe they were responsible for the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.. Yet it is important to approach anything concerning the Jeffrey ...

*  sleepy hollow - Reluctant Habits
Whatever the reason, all this bonhomie led me to believe that I could talk with someone on the City Council. My journey started at one wing of the fourth floor, where administrative types were answering telephones and sealing envelopes and trying to hold the majority leader - a man named Wilson A. Terrero - to his hectic schedule. Nerissa Peña, Chief of Staff of the Yonkers City Council, was very helpful in seeking five minutes with Terrero, who was at the tail end of a vivacious meeting with two businessmen. I thanked Nerissa and told her that I would return, once I had investigated the opposite wing.. I walked to the other side of City Hall. Several people told me that there was a man named Chuck who liked to talk. Chuck was the Council President. All spoke fondly of his gregariousness. The three women working in his office. The communications guy, who name-checked Joshua Ferris's The Unnamed when I told him about the walk. And I'm fairly certain that if I had loitered around City Hall after ...

*  wooden overcoats - Reluctant Habits
BARNES: My original conception of the series was to infuse it with Gothic horror leanings, drawing upon some of my literary interests, but as I developed the characters in the pilot script - and as the other writers brought their ideas to the table - it was the humour that came to the forefront. Essentially, I just wrote what I personally thought was funny: obsessives who cause their own problems and can't see it, being repressed when everyone else is a libertine, a touch of mild surrealism and perversity. There's a dark thread running through it all, of course, which arises from the subject matter, but I try not to push it too much. It's meant to be inherently enjoyable, not gross people out. I also like to avoid vulgarity and swearing, partly to increase the potential listenership but also because it forces more interesting uses of character, language and rhythm. I've seen the series compared to Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, Father Ted, Keeping Up Appearances, and so on, mainly as it's a British ...

*  totally biased - Reluctant Habits
On August 28, 2013, I fired up my browser on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King delivering his "I Have a Dream" speech. I was appalled. I was glad to see King recognized in a Google Doodle, but why were King's words reduced to mere text? On January 16th, Google had celebrated Frank Zamboni's 112th birthday with a game that allowed you to maneuver through an ice rink. On Valentine's Day, you could click on a heart to rotate two Ferris Wheels. On February 19th, Copernicus's 540th birthday was recognized with a slowly animated solar system. On June 10th, there had been an elaborate Maurice Sendak Doodle. Even Debussy's 151st birthday ushered in an impressive animation set to "Clair de Lune.". If the mainstream baseline of online culture could not be bothered to offer more than a perfunctory nod to King, what was the point in celebrating?. Days before, the Internet had been aflame with Miley Cyrus's disastrous twerking at the MTV Video Music Awards. Beyond the trashy bombast, people were ...

*  bailey loverin - Reluctant Habits
On February 26, 2014, a UC Santa Barbara student named Bailey Loverin pushed "A Resolution to Mandate Warnings for Triggering Content in Academic Settings" through the Associated Students Senate. The resolution called on professors to issue "trigger warnings" for students on "materials with mature content" taught in the classroom - whether it be a difficult film shown for context, material assigned for reading, or even a casual conversation on a tough issue. Loverin cited her own discomfort sitting through a film, one which she has refused to identify, depicting sexual assault. The class's unnamed professor, according to Loverin, provided no warning before the film. Loverin claimed that it was harder for her to walk out of the movie, because doing so in the dark would apparently draw attention. (I have consulted other interviews with Loverin to establish the facts. Loverin did not return my emails for comment.). Loverin has stated that she's a survivor of sexual abuse, but she has not suffered ...
