@thenation.com Making the Case I agree with Elie Mystal on the capture of the Supreme Court by conservatives, a “full-scale heist… in broad daylight,” but I have a different perspective on the path to reform [“Re-Forming the Court,” March 16/23]. As a lawyer, I’m hesitant to ask for a big remedy until I’ve made my case, and we haven’t yet effectively made our case about the court’s capture to the American people. Step one, educate people about the 80 (yes, 80) 5-4 partisan decisions that the Roberts Five have rendered that gave victories to big Republican donor interests. They may know the big four cases—Citizens United, Shelby County, Friedrichs/Janus, and Heller—but they don’t know the pattern. Five to four decisions should happen rarely, partisan 5-4 decisions more rarely still; 80 of them is…

a just bailout

The bailouts are coming. As the coronavirus brings economic activity grinding to a halt, industries are flocking to the federal government with palms outstretched. An airline industry trade organization has already asked for nearly $60 billion. Those companies are likely to get something: President Trump has already said, “We don’t want airlines going out of business.” Yet the last time we bailed them out, after 9/11, we handed the industry billions of dollars in loans and grants while requiring very little in return. This time we have to demand concessions for our money. The companies that get taxpayer bailouts should be required to keep employees and contractors on their payrolls and leave union contracts and benefits intact. In the early 2000s, airlines laid off tens of thousands of workers, many of…

korea fights covid-19

On March 12, CNN ran a startling chyron after a congressional briefing on the rapid spread of Covid-19. “Health officials tell lawmakers only about 11,000 people tested for virus in U.S.; South Korea testing about 10K per day,” it read, as the visibly shocked hosts pressed their guests for an explanation. The actual figure is even higher. “South Korea has been on average testing 12,000 patients a day—about as many as the U.S. has managed to test over the last two weeks,” the Los Angeles Times reported on March 14. By that time, the government of President Moon Jae-in had tested 261,335 people. Many of the tests were conducted at sites where citizens could be served in their cars, a process that has been highly praised by residents. “The drive-through testing was…

love under lockdown

Liza Feather stone Dear Liza, My wife’s coronavirus anxiety is through the roof and has taken the form of desperate stockpiling. Our teenage sons and I gape in disbelief at the supplies coming in the back door daily. Twenty boxes of Pop-Tarts—really??? My wife is a lauded author and professor, and the transformation over the past few weeks has been startling. She says to me, exasperated after I make a snarky comment, “Can’t you have a little compassion?” I know it’s difficult to trust Mike Pence or the Centers for Disease Control after it has been starved of funding by Donald Trump. But is there any better way to figure out what to do? —Involuntary Hoarder Dear Involuntary, You’ve nailed the root of the problem: With no confidence that our government will protect us, your…
