STAR POWER Although Michael Schulman is right to highlight the dark side of fandom, it is worth noting that many celebrities have mobilized their fan bases to help make the world a better place (“The Force Is with Them,” September 16th). As an admirer of Misha Collins, who plays the angel Castiel in the television series “Supernatural,” I have been impressed by his ability to inspire generosity in his “minions,” as his fans are known. Collins founded Random Acts, a nonprofit that raises money for relief efforts, schools, and the L.G.B.T.Q. community, to which his fans contribute enthusiastically. He also created the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt, whose registration fees are partially used to fund charitable initiatives. People from more than a hundred countries participated in this year’s activities. Collins’s endeavors exemplify…

goings on about town: this week

The Union Square Greenmarket (pictured) opened, in 1976, with seven farm stands. Today, during peak season, dog-walking locavores and food-minded tourists mingle with some hundred and forty purveyors of fruits and vegetables—not to mention buffalo-milk ricotta, gourmet fungi, dahlias the size of dinner plates, and only-in-New York honey harvested on local rooftops from Crown Heights to Chinatown. The market is open year-round on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, from 8 to 6. DANCE New York City Ballet David H. Koch The last week of the fall season offers a little bit of everything, including several masterpieces of the repertoire: Jerome Robbins’s “Dances at a Gathering,” Merce Cunningham’s “Summer-space,” and George Balanchine’s “Serenade” and “Symphony in C.” Two new works, by Lauren Lovette (a company member) and by Edwaard Liang (a former member), return on…

tables for two: mo’s original

The story of Mo’s Original, a new restaurant in Brooklyn, involves a few false starts. First, there was Glady’s, an eclectic sandwich shop opened in Crown Heights, in 2013, by Michael Jacober, a chef and grilled-cheese-truck impresario. The sandwiches were excitingly unusual, but after a few months Jacober, feeling like an interloper in the neighborhood, decided to rebrand as a Caribbean restaurant, focussing on Jamaican-style jerk to better serve the local community. If this was pandering, it was in good faith—Jacober travelled around Jamaica to educate himself and found a partner in one of his sous-chefs, Junior Felix, a native of St. Lucia—and it worked; in 2016, they expanded to a second, bigger location, in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. In these new digs, however, Glady’s didn’t quite take. And so, in May, Felix,…

comment: from russia to ukraine

President Trump and his allies nearly succeeded in consigning the Mueller report to oblivion. William Barr, Trump’s compliant Attorney General, got a jump on the process when he preëmpted the public release of the report by providing a misleading summary, which minimized the special counsel’s findings on Russian interference in the 2016 campaign. Trump compounded Barr’s distortions by falsely and endlessly repeating that the report found “no collusion, no obstruction.” Congressional Democrats did little for the cause of clarity by using the report as an occasion to debate the semantics of what constitutes an impeachment investigation. And Robert Mueller himself invited a certain measure of confusion by telling his story in dense, legalistic prose. Barely six months after he delivered the report, it had already faded into the mists of…

the ban: double-planting

The press agent Sy Presten is an old hand in the gossip business. The oldest, probably. Ninety-five and still working. Got his start in 1944. Remembers the rules for pitching items to Walter Winchell. Has one remaining paying client, an author and life-style guru named Bruce Littlefield. “I handled the Stork Club, I handled the Copa,” Presten said recently, stretched out on a sofa in his apartment, on Twenty-third Street. His dark eyes searched his visitor’s for recognition. “Marvin Mitchelson? I had him for twenty years.” (Google: “Marvin M. Mitchelson was an American celebrity lawyer who pioneered the concept of palimony.”) It was important that Presten establish his bona fides, because lately he’s spent less time pushing other people’s names than he has trying to clear his own. After seventy-five years…
