DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE As a health-care professional who during the pandemic has used telemedicine for the first time, I read John Seabrook’s report on the subject with great interest (“Hands Off,” June 29th). Seabrook does an excellent job outlining telemedicine’s advantages and limitations, but my colleagues and I continue to wonder how a for-profit medical system that relies on “heads in beds” to drive revenue can adequately deliver virtual care, particularly amid a pandemic. In developed countries with socialized medical systems, saving lives means saving money, because reducing the number of sick people lowers costs for the system. But in the United States the situation is reversed. Despite surging E.R. and I.C.U. admittances, hospitals—owing to the cancellation of lucrative elective procedures—are losing money and laying off staff. Although preventive medicine,…

goings on about town: this week

JULY 29 – AUGUST 11, 2020 With New York movie theatres closed to maintain social distancing, the big-screen experience has been thriving at drive-ins, which are making a comeback throughout the region—whether upstate (as at the Warwick Drive-In, pictured above), in New Jersey (at Demarest Farms, in Hillsdale), or within the city limits (at the Skyline, in Greenpoint). Offerings tend toward familiar fare, such as “The Goonies,” “Iron Man,” and “Mamma Mia!,” but also include such new releases as “Relic” and “She Dies Tomorrow.” ART Ja’ Tovia Gary Early in her rhapsodic forty-minute film, “The Giverny Document (Single Channel),” from 2019, this American artist is seen standing on a street in Harlem asking women, “Do you feel safe in your body?” One answer declares a collective truth: “It’s already not easy being Black.” These…

tables for two: picnic baskets

The past few months have been, you could say, no picnic. Might I suggest … a picnic? Picnicking—on a sandy beach, a verdant meadow, or even a tar-sticky rooftop, with a blanket for both table and cloth—is, as the idiom implies, the height of earthly pleasure. Think of Henri Cartier-Bresson’s iconic nineteen-thirties photograph “Sunday on the Banks of the Marne” (the English word comes from the French piquenique), in which four people in repose on a grassy slope pour wine and eat with their hands, napkins spread across their laps, in view of a boat equipped with folding chairs and fishing rods, or of Fernando Botero’s paintings of rotund figures reclining among fruit baskets, bottles, and loaves of bread atop a surrealist mountain range or lawn. As the summer unfolds and…

comment: the women’s vote

For a country that prides itself on its democracy, the United States has forced a lot of its citizens to fight for the privilege of voting. August 18th marks the centenary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which declares that the right to vote “shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” That milestone is sometimes described as having “given” women the right to vote. It wasn’t a gift; it was a hard-won victory on the part of suffragists who’d been agitating for it for more than seventy years, on the basis of their common humanity with men. Even in the decade before the amendment was passed, its ratification was by no means a certainty. Though women…

wyoming postcard: best western

Bill Garlow, the great-grandson of Buffalo Bill Cody, owns two Best Western hotels in Cody, Wyoming. In June, Garlow, who is seventy-eight, found himself sitting in his office across from Kanye West—a Cody resident since 2019—along with West’s cousin and a Yeezy employee. None of them wore masks. “Kanye kept saying, ‘Best … West … ern,’” Lindsay Garlow, Bill’s daughter, who’d sat in on the meeting, recalled. “He didn’t seem to know that it was a chain of international hotels.” West loved the name—and he thought her dad had come up with it. The group spoke for an hour. “They were on their phones the entire time, texting,” she said. “As a teacher, that drives me batshit crazy.” Eventually, Bill cleared his throat, and West looked up. “He wanted to…
