FARMERS’ MARKETS John Seabrook commendably charts the many challenges of using A.I. in farming, and also the potential advantages (“Machine Hands,” April 15th). One significant benefit, which the article only briefly mentions, is that advanced farming techniques could slow the effects of climate change. Agriculture produces around a quarter of the world’s greenhouse-gas emissions, and yet it is often neglected in debates about how to combat global warming. Greater investment in research and development is critical for finding ways to feed a growing population on a hotter planet. Joe Cerrell Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation London, England DIGNITY BEHIND BARS Adam Gopnik, in his review of Emily Bazelon’s “Charged,” surveys a set of new books that humanize the millions of people imprisoned in the U.S. (Books, April 15th). Recent public discourse about the harms of incarceration…

goings on about town

In her 1964 essay “Notes on ‘Camp,’” Susan Sontag wrote, “The hallmark of Camp is the spirit of extravagance. Camp is a woman walking around in a dress made of three million feathers.” A case in point is the haute-couture ensemble above, designed by Giorgio Armani for the 2018 fall/winter season. This sartorial confection is just one of two hundred and fifty items, made between the seventeenth and the twenty-first centuries, on view in the Met Costume Institute’s exhibition “Camp: Notes on Fashion,” opening on May 9. NIGHT LIFE Musicians and night-club proprietors lead complicated lives; it’s advisable to check in advance to confirm engagements. David Murray with Saul Williams Birdland Back in the eighties and nineties, it might have seemed as if every new dawn also brought a new David Murray recording. The still…

tables for two: crown shy

Last month, Kwame Onwuachi, the twenty-nine-year-old chef and founder of the Washington, D.C., restaurant Kith/Kin, published a memoir, titled “Notes from a Young Black Chef,” about his life and career so far. On Twitter, he was commended for, among other things, “naming names” of superiors who he alleged had mistreated and humiliated him during his time as an intern and a line cook at some of Manhattan’s toniest restaurants. One of the chefs he worked for at Eleven Madison Park, though, was different: “a father figure” and a “healthy sane presence” who oversaw a kitchen that was “focused and quiet, intense but not unfriendly,” where Onwuachi was put on the fast track to a promotion. That chef was James Kent, who left Eleven Madison Park in 2013 to run the kitchen…

If there is one thing that Attorney General William Barr’s testimony in the Senate last week made abundantly clear, it’s that he is fine with acting less like the chief law-enforcement officer of the United States and more like the personal lawyer for a tantrum-prone client named Donald Trump. Barr dissembled when answering questions about his handling of the Mueller report, then mischaracterized Robert Mueller’s objections to his spin on it, saying that the special counsel had been primarily troubled by how “the media was playing this.” In fact, Mueller had written, in a letter to Barr, that he was concerned because the Attorney General’s summary “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of his team’s work. Barr described that letter as “snitty” and probably written by “staff…

the campaign trail: rhodes runner

In 1988, Spy magazine published a piece by Andrew Sullivan titled “All Rhodes Lead Nowhere in Particular.” In it, Sullivan made fun of the “bland eugenic perfection” of the typical Rhodes scholar. He was riffing on the old platitude “A Rhodes scholar is someone with a great future behind him.” Except—maybe?—for Pete Buttigieg, the ascendant Presidential candidate and millennial mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Before heading to England, in 2005, Buttigieg joined the thirty-odd American Rhodes Scholars in Washington, D.C., at an orientation called Sailing Weekend, which involved no sailing. The twenty-three-year-old Harvard grad introduced himself as Peter and carried a small notebook in his pocket. So had Bill Clinton—the only Rhodes Scholar to have become President—who is said to have taken notes about everyone he met. (Bobby Jindal and Cory…
