1995 “Blood, race, celebrity, lust, love, sex, brutality: this case has had it all,” Newsweek reported on The People v. O.J. Simpson. In the trial of the former football star, the “prosecution and defense battled over evidence that portrayed Simpson as a brutal wife batterer and a key police witness as a racist.” A Newsweek poll revealed “82 percent of Americans” expected to follow the case, generating “the most publicized murder trial in history.” With the public divided largely along racial lines, Simpson was finally acquitted, and the murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman remain unsolved. 1973 “Harsh winter weather was biting more deeply all across America” and “fuel shortages began to plague the nation,” Newsweek wrote. The country faced “long-range prospects of brownouts” and “diplomatic repercussions in the oil-rich Middle East.”…

a cure for your holiday debt hangover

THAT QUEASY FEELING YOU GOT LAST MONTH after you overindulged at a holiday party or knocked back one too many glasses of bubbly on New Year’s Eve? Chances are you may suffer a similar sensation this month when your credit card bills show up—stark proof of the toll your holiday travels, entertaining and generosity are taking on your finances. Plenty of people share your pain. The typical consumer racked up more than $1,300 in debt over the holidays, according to a MagnifyMoney survey, with Gen-Xers owing the most, at $2,076 on average. Compounding the problem: Seven in 10 borrowers already had a balance on their credit card before the giving season began. “It isn’t splurging for that one big, expensive gift—the car with the bow in the commercials—but all of the hundreds…

meghan markle’s mutiny

IN A TOTALLY UNANTICIPATED public statement earlier this month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex mutinied against a monarchical institution, confronted vicious media outlets and common disparagers, and chose more freedom for themselves and their baby boy. Horrified traditionalists blame the uppity, black American wife. Harry was their darling, Officer Prince until the hussy got under his skin, into his head and heart. Best-selling English novelist Sir Philip Pullman named and shamed their racism in a tweet and concluded: “This really is a foul country.” So why should they not escape from it? When Harry wed Meghan in 2018, the sun shone, birds sang, crowds cheerfully waved their wee union flags. The world loves performative British Royal weddings, but this one came loaded with symbolism. Idealistic white people and minorities whipped up…

the nigerian century

IT’S MIDNIGHT IN A MEDIEVAL palace in the oldest city in West Africa: Kano, Nigeria. A thousand years ago, this was one of the richest cities in the world, the terminus of the cross-Saharan trade that brought guns and salt to exchange for slaves, gold and ivory. The palace has 5-foot thick walls, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, stone pathways and ornate mosaic domes. On the walls are large color photographs of a serious-looking man wearing a white turban with a veil across the bottom of his face. The two tails of the ceremonial knot that holds the veil in place look like bunny ears. The man is Muhammadu Sanusi II, the 14th emir of Kano, the second most important religious position in Nigeria. I watch as his assistant crawls across the carpet on…
