TAKE ME TO THE RIVERElizabeth Kolbert, in her article about rising sea levels, ascribes much of Louisiana’s disappearing coastline to the levee system (“Under Water,” April 1st). The levees are indeed a significant cause of the problem, but they aren’t the only one. Scientists employed by oil and gas companies have conceded that their industry is responsible for at least thirty-six per cent of the land loss. River dams are also a problem: on the Missouri, which empties into the Mississippi, just six dams retain roughly a hundred million tons of sediment—a quarter of the entire sediment load that the Mississippi once carried to the Gulf. At the mouth of the Mississippi, two-mile-long shipping-channel jetties divert a substantial amount of sediment into deep water, where it can’t contribute to building…

goings on about town: this week

(PHOTOGRAPH BY MATTHEW TAMMARO)When the new arts space the Shed opens, on April 5, it’ll be heralded by “Soundtrack of America.” The five-day concert series highlights a broad spectrum of black music, calling on such acts as the soulful folk band Victory, the punk musician Tamar-kali, the vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Braxton Cook, the R. & B. and jazz-fusion outfit Phony Ppl, and the Afrofuturist duo Oshun (all pictured above). Lovingly curated with an eye toward innovation, this progressive bill is filled with artists as galvanizing as they are virtuosic.ART“Joan Miró”Museum of Modern ArtThis enchanting show draws on the museum’s immense holdings of Miró’s work, along with a few loans. Its star attraction is “The Birth of the World,” painted in 1925, while the artist was under the spell of the…

tables for two: the standard grill

(ILLUSTRATION BY JOOST SWARTE)By the time Rocco DiSpirito was a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars,” in 2008, it had been so long since he’d worked as a chef that it wasn’t clear whether the job description still applied. He’d come to prominence in the late nineties as one of the most promising young culinary talents in New York City—but quickly became one of the first celebrity chefs, spending more time on TV shows (including his own ill-fated NBC reality series, “The Restaurant”) and hawking products (Bertolli’s frozen food, a line of cookware on QVC) than actually cooking.And then he sort of disappeared. It isn’t clear whether, after a decade spent mostly out of the limelight, he’s still a celebrity. This may explain why, last fall, DiSpirito decided to become…

comment: what’s the story?

Last year, the Times and the Washington Post shared a Pulitzer Prize for “deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage” of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election. None of the stories established that Donald Trump or members of his campaign had conspired illegally with Russians, though some of the reporting raised that possibility. The Times, for example, reported that, in the summer of 2016, when Donald Trump, Jr., was informed in an e-mail that a high-ranking Russian official was offering to share dirt that could “incriminate” Hillary Clinton, he replied, “I love it.” (When the paper contacted Trump, Jr., for comment, he released the e-mails in question.)On March 24th, Attorney General William Barr, summarizing the special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report, announced that Mueller had cleared Trump and his campaign of…

ink: mueller’s magnum opus

The Mueller report has been awaited with more excitement than—and for three times as long as—Meghan Markle’s baby. Now that the special counsel’s report is here, sort of, three publishers have announced plans to release it as a book: Skyhorse, with an introduction by Alan Dershowitz; Scribner, with supplementary material by Washington Post reporters; and Melville House, straight up. (The document will be in the public domain.) “Our printers are ready to print faster than usual,” Dennis Johnson, Melville House’s co-founder and co-publisher, said last week, over the phone. “And we’ll ask the truck drivers to do at least the speed limit to deliver the book.” Tony Lyons, the president and publisher of Skyhorse, said that he’d received thousands of pre-orders, and he’s been touting his edition’s Dershowitz bonus. “Alan…
