WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT …DARE TO IMPEACH Molly Ball’s March 25 cover story about House Democrats who want to impeach President Trump prompted debate among readers across the political spectrum. Christopher Moree of Apopka, Fla., dismissed Democrats who want to impeach Trump as sore losers, while Larry Schultz of Bellevue, Wash., said the Democrats’ motive “seems to simply be that Trump is a jerk and they don’t like him.” But Phil Nuernberger of Honesdale, Pa., saw urgency in the issue. “It IS a crisis when impeachment should occur and doesn’t,” he wrote. And some readers who might agree with House Democrats were turned off by the result impeachment would entail: “Pence may not be as obnoxious,” wrote Henry Close of Douglasville, Ga., “but his policies are just as dangerous.”‘If impeachment…

after climate strike, students want more

INSIDE THE U.K. HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT, THE grownups were at work. Outside, thousands of other people—many of whom were not old enough to vote—were doing their best to make sure business was anything but usual. With their chants echoing down the streets, they were among an estimated 1.6 million students in over 120 countries who left school on March 15 in protest of adult inaction on climate change. “It shocks me how great a length we have to go to be heard,” said 16-year-old Miranda Ashby, who’d traveled more than two hours to London with roughly 50 of her classmates. “We are protesting now because if not now, when?”The school climate strikes started one Friday last August with teen activist Greta Thunberg’s standing vigil outside Sweden’s Parliament. “When I first…

a bookstore that’s turning a page for women in literature

AMERICAN WRITER A.N. DEVERS WAS AT A rare-book fair in New York City in 2015 when she noticed a Joan Didion title selling for just $25. Then she saw the price tag of a novel by the equally famous Cormac McCarthy: about $600. “I realized we don’t value women’s work the same way we do men’s,” Devers says. “It’s depressing. But it’s also exciting, because I can do something about it.”Three years later, after moving to London and joining the U.K.’s thriving rare-book trade, Devers opened the red doors of her new bookstore, the Second Shelf. Tucked away in a quiet courtyard off the busy streets of London’s Soho, the store almost exclusively stocks rare books by women (alongside a handful of male-authored books about women). The focus is modern…

DIEDW.S. Merwin Bard of the ephemeralBy Rita DoveI FIRST READ AND ADMIRED W.S. MERWIN, WHO DIED AT 91 ON March 15, long before I met him, in the 1970s. In the ’80s we got to know each other at various literary events. By the time we were both poetry consultants for the Library of Congress’s bicentennial in 1999, it was like meeting an old friend again.Once, while he was visiting the University of Virginia to give a reading, we were late for dinner and I was rushing, when I suddenly noticed he wasn’t beside me anymore. I turned around to find him at the edge of the parking lot, staring into the evening sky. What was wrong, I asked, and he replied, “Rita, don’t you pay tribute to the moon…

as kids get addicted to e-cigs, treatment options are slim

By Jamie DucharmeUNTIL RECENTLY, DR. JONATHAN Avery, an addiction psychiatrist at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, rarely treated adolescents for nicotine addiction. After years of plummeting youth smoking rates, “we thought we were winning the game on cigarettes,” Avery says.But e-cigarettes—which can each contain as much nicotine as a pack of cigarettes—have exploded in popularity, causing what the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is calling an “epidemic” among young people. More than 20% of high school students use e-cigs, even though they are legal only for adults. “Suddenly, there’s all sorts of [young] people looking for treatment, wondering what to do,” Avery says.20% Percentage of U.S. high schoolers who use e-cigs, according to federal dataE-cigarette use has far outpaced science when it comes to finding treatments for nicotine dependence.
