editor’s letter

The Power of Food There are many things Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be remembered for (see our story on page 54), but what I found most touching is the love story with her husband, Marty. He supported her career and helped at home, famously becoming the chef in the family since “Ruth was fairly terrible” at it, he once joked. At intimate lunches at the Court when spouses were invited, Marty’s cooking also helped foster collegiality. So much so that after he died, Martha-Ann Alito, wife of Justice Samuel Alito, led the charge in putting his recipes together into a cookbook. That’s the power of food: It brings us together and shows how much we care. I’ve felt this in my own life, especially as this summer began and…

Ellen DeGeneres is back on-air—and talking about the elephant in the room. After pushing back the start of the 18th season of her syndicated daytime talk show following allegations of a toxic workplace environment, the host addressed the controversy head-on in her opening monologue on Sept. 21. “I learned that things happened here that never should have happened,” she said. “I take that very seriously, and I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected.” DeGeneres, 62, known for her “be kind to one another” motto, also spoke about her own shortcomings in front of an audience watching remotely because of COVID-19 precautions. “The truth is I am that person you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things,” she said. “Sometimes I…
