HOW TO GET BETTER Rachel Aviv’s piece about Laura Delano, a woman who decided to stop taking psychiatric drugs after years of treatment, is more honest about the challenges of prolonged mental illness than many other accounts (“Bitter Pill,” April 8th). It’s true that prescription cascades like the one Delano experienced are common and often misguided, and it’s wonderful that Delano was able to find health and happiness after going off her many medications. In using her story as a case study, however, the article implies that we’re all, in the end, better off without the drugs. This is precisely the sort of dangerous, reductive thinking that encourages people to discontinue their medications, often to disastrous effect. I have watched a relative struggle with bipolar II for eleven years, and seen…

goings on about town: this week

The Film Forum series “Trilogies” (April 19-May 16) offers such cinematic landmarks as Fritz Lang’s films about the criminal mastermind Dr. Mabuse (made in 1922, 1933, and 1960); Satyajit Ray’s Apu trilogy, which follows its protagonist from his impoverished childhood to his struggles as a father; and Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s trio of dramas about women facing corruption in postwar West Germany, including the flamboyantly colorful “Lola,” starring Barbara Sukowa (above) as a singer and sex worker who gets entangled in city government. CLASSICAL MUSIC “In Visible Roads” 1 Rivington Street The last few concerts in this co-presentation by the Blueprints Piano Series and the composer-and-performer collective Metropolis Ensemble bring an intriguing array of mostly contemporary, mostly piano works to the Bowery. The jazz pianist Aaron Diehl will improvise and, with Timo Andres, play the…

tables for two: au cheval

It’s a shame that Au Cheval, the new outpost of a Chicago restaurant that makes what many people consider the best burgers in that city, is serving burgers in this city. Burgers draw unruly and unrelenting crowds, especially when pushed to the edge of decadence, as they are here: the restaurant’s name, which means “on horseback” in French, is also short-order parlance for “topped with a fried egg.” An endless stream of burgers comes out of the kitchen, most of which are plated open-faced, one half of each bun hoisting a thick, round patty of ground beef, the other serving as a pedestal for a perfect bird’s eye of white and yolk, sprinkled with chives. Cheese (a mix of Kraft-brand American and Cheddar) and a thick rasher of maple-glazed bacon…

comment: partners in division

Twenty-one years ago, Benzion Net anyahu, a scholar of medieval history and the father of an Israeli Prime Minister serving his first term, relaxed with a reporter at his home on Haportzim Street, in West Jerusalem, and wondered aloud if his boy, who went by “Bibi,” was made of the right stuff. Benzion was an uncompromising ideologue, a maximalist, and a member of the Revisionist movement. (The Revisionist hymn included the line “the Jordan has two banks; this one is ours, the other one, too.”) He despised the liberal élites. They had stifled his academic career, he believed, and weakened the country with their prattle about making peace with the Palestinians. Supporters of the Labor Party, the dominant force in Israeli politics for decades, did not, in his mind, live…

georgia postcard: roll on

Recently, the Georgia congresswoman Dar’shun Kendrick drafted a “testicular bill of rights,” which would restrict men’s access to erectile-dysfunction pills, sex toys, and pornography, in some cases making men wait twenty-four hours—and receive spousal approval—to obtain them. Kendrick, a Democrat, who has acknowledged that the legislation was tongue in cheek, later said, “If you’re going to regulate women’s bodies, why not do the same type of regulation on men’s bodies?” Her bill was a response to the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, which Georgia’s Republican-controlled state legislature passed in late March, adding Georgia to a growing list of states that are attempting to tighten restrictions on abortion. If signed by the governor, the LIFE Act will effectively ban the procedure after six weeks, when a fetal heartbeat can…
