ROGER STONE’S TRICKSI read with great interest Tyler Foggatt’s reporting on Roger Stone’s teen-age electioneering days in Westchester County (The Talk of the Town, March 18th). I knew Roger in school—when he was the president of the student council at John Jay High School, I was the president of the student council at the middle school. In 1971, a year after Stone graduated, I started examining a Westchester County legislature race for a social-studies project, and discovered that Stone appeared to be organizing churches as part of a smear campaign against the incumbent, R. Bradlee Boal, a potential violation of the Johnson Amendment, which prohibits nonprofit organizations from endorsing or opposing political candidates. (Stone later told the Washington Post that his candidate, a Republican named John Hicks-Beach, was the “dumbest…

goings on about town: this week

(PHOTOGRAPH BY PETER HAPAK)In 1938, George Balanchine choreographed dances for Vera Zorina in the Rodgers and Hart musical “I Married an Angel,” and married her onstage. So it’s a cute bit of historical rhyming that Joshua Bergasse, the director and choreographer of the City Center Encores! production of the show (March 20-24), recently married its star, Sara Mearns (above). One of the boldest ballerinas at New York City Ballet, which Balanchine founded at City Center, in 1948, Mearns is making her début in a speaking role. Angelic dancing shouldn’t give her any trouble.ART“Epic Abstraction”Metropolitan MuseumA desire to shake up received art history is more than admirable today—it’s urgent for a future of pluralist values. But this wishfully canon-expanding show of painting and sculpture from the past eight decades effectively reinforces…

tables for two: marlow & sons

Did any establishment define early-two-thousands Williamsburg as perfectly as Marlow & Sons? In 2007, in this magazine’s first review of the restaurant—which is also, by loose definition, a bodega, peddling artisanal sundries, and a café—Lauren Collins described the aesthetic as “pure ironic-nostalgic pastiche… something like Ellis Island by way of Epcot.” Twenty something creatives would flock to the place, which just turned fifteen, for oysters and speakeasy-style cocktails in the evening, then return, hungover, for breakfast and third-wave coffee in the morning.The menu, though, resisted mockery: it was straightforward and sterling, changing frequently with the seasons but anchored by unpretentious crowd-pleasers like flaky biscuits, tortilla española, pâté, and the signature “brick chicken.” The restaurateurs Mark Firth and Andrew Tarlow (“Marlow” is a portmanteau of their names)—who met working at Keith…

comment: last exit to brexit

The lexicon of Brexit, the United Kingdom’s buffoonishly mismanaged effort to leave the European Union, includes technical terms such as “backstop” and “customs union,” as well as a fanciful but revealing one: “unicorn.” It has come to be a scornful shorthand for all that the Brexiteers promised voters in the June, 2016, referendum and cannot, now or ever, deliver. An E.U. official, referring to what he saw as the U.K.’s irrational negotiation schemes, told the Financial Times that “the unicorn industry has been very busy.” Anti-Brexit protesters have taken to wearing unicorn costumes. “A lot of the people who advocated Brexit have been chasing unicorns now for a very long time,” Leo Varadkar, the Prime Minister of Ireland, said last week in Washington, D.C., where he attended St. Patrick’s Day…

the airwaves: bubba the love sponge

Last week, old radio clips surfaced of the Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson saying some incendiary things. From 2006 to 2011, Carlson had called in regularly to a show in Florida, where he described Arianna Huffington as a “pig,” Oprah Winfrey as an “anti-man” crusader who “hate[s] the penis,” and women in general as “extremely primitive.” Iraqis are “monkeys” who should “shut the fuck up and obey.” Carlson also had positive messages. He spoke lustily of Miss Teen South Carolina, saying, “She definitely looks eighteen.” And he praised white men for “creating civilization and stuff.”After the first clips were aired by Media Matters, many advertisers abandoned Carlson’s show (including Just for Men, the beard-dye brand; My-Pillow remains). Carlson refused to apologize. He argued instead that critics on the left have…
