I’m a 65-Year-Old Dentist Who Left It All Behind to Work at America’s Best New Restaurant

"Retiring and playing golf all day has zero appeal to me. In my mind, I want to hit it really hard for five years and see where I land...I want to maximize my opportunities for the next five years. I’ll be 70 by then. I don’t know if it’s a restless spirit, but I’m just someone who needs to keep creating and feeding people. I derive a lot of satisfaction from that."

Dr. Peter Glatz gave up his four-decade-long career to work 12-hour days as a line cook. Now, he’s never been happier.

On Mothers and Daughters, with Cathy’s Cathy Guisewite

“My own mother used to cut out my comic strip and send it to me, to make a point, and I’d go, ‘Uh, mom, I know. I wrote that one. I was quoting you in that.’”

Writing Fifty Things That Aren’t My Fault, a new book of essays, was “like getting home and taking off the Spanx,” says the cartoonist.

Welcome to Red Sauce America

Whether or not you’re Italian, red sauce likely means something to you—about family, or home, or history, or politics, or class, or citizenship, or selfhood, or otherness, or all the above, or a million other things. And that’s what this package is all about.

From chicken parm to clams casino, this is our celebration of the Italian-American restaurants we love.

Facebook Rolls Out More Features for Dead People

There is at least one potential problem with legacy contacts that Facebook’s latest updates still do not address. You can only have one legacy contact for an account—if both the person and their designated legacy contact die, say in a car crash, there’s no backup person.

When you die, Facebook wants your profile to become a place for grieving friends and family to gather online.

The 10-Step Process of Preparing A Weekly Batch of Cartoons for the New Yorker

"You don’t have to submit in person each week, but I like to do it to keep me to a routine and get the feedback on each cartoon so I can keep improving. Also, I live less than 10 minutes away and even my laziness has its limits." - Jason Chatfield Cartoonist

I often get asked what the process is of submitting cartoons to the New Yorker . So, I thought I would write it for you to enjoy. And, let’s be honest, for me to copy and past when someone asks me again. You may have already read my 3-part account of my first day submitting cartoons to the New Yo

Steve Earle’s Winsome Tribute to Guy Clark

Steve Earle, came of age in the shadow of Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, and he has outlived them both. His new record, “Guy,” is a tribute to Clark, who died in 2016. In 2009, Earle released an album called “Townes.” “I knew when Guy died that I’d have to make a record, because I don’t want to run into that motherf**ker on the other side having made Townes’s record and not made his. I don’t even know whether I believe in that, you know, but I am not taking any chances.”

Rather than reimagining his source material, Earle doesn’t monkey much with his late mentor’s melodies. He plays Clark’s songs the way Clark played them.

As of last evening the library was back open, the young bull was out grabbing some food in the Blue River behind the library, if he comes back they may have to close again.

The library in Silverthorne is closed, but it's not because of the snow. It's because a moose decided to take a nap.

The New York Hustle of Amazon’s Second Headquarters

"The city of hustlers got hustled when the world’s richest man got the world’s greatest city to pay him to do what millions do for free: be here.

Hustle’s over." - Anand Giridharadas

Giridharadas' essay for The New Yorker in which Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made the case against Amazon’s billionaire handout.

The game-show quality of the cities’ bidding war, with its spectre of cash-starved governments begging to give money to a billionaire, left some critics fuming.

How Did ‘Likability’ Become a Thing for Women in Politics?

Former Vermont governor Madeleine Kunin: “You’re sort of damned if you're too feminine and nice—then you're considered weak and not capable of being commander-in-chief. If you’re tough enough to be commander-in-chief, you're not likable. You lose some of your femininity. So women have to walk a very fine line to be both, and usually they don't wear well over time.”

And could the 2020 race for president help Americans finally get over it?

We are now officially in the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. Here are some of the stories furloughed women told Glamour about living, waiting, and trying to get by. They spoke on their own behalf, not for the federal government; some requested partial anonymity out of concern for their jobs.

Five women share how they’re coping, where they’re cutting back, and what they’re doing to fill the time.

The Fresno Bee and the War on Local News

"It's not that local newspapers like The Fresno Bee are perfect—far from it. It's just that they...contain news. Lose them and you lose the basic building blocks of any political or social conversation, which are facts. Information. Knowledge. Are your schools good or bad? Does your air have poison in it? What exactly does Rep. Devin Nunes do every day in Washington, when he's not in Fresno? You either know or you don't."

Zach Baron spent time with the reporters fighting to keep news alive in an age when the forces they cover are working equally hard to destroy them.
