I was among the many reporters who came to Oklahoma City in 1995 to cover the aftermath of the bomb that destroyed the federal building and killed 168 people and wounded many more. I wrote a lot about it, but I couldn’t make much sense of it, especially because Oklahoma City also happens to be my hometown.

Six years later, in 2001, as the United States prepared to execute Timothy McVei...

The Boston Marathon bombing is yet another news event where I seemed to lose focus before I lost interest. I ached for the victims but I didn't respond to the big wave of "Boston Strong" that followed -- the vengeance, the wounded civic pride -- and ...more

Another one (which I remember more clearly) from Dr. Nancy Anderson's Victorian Culture & Society history course in the fall of 1989. We were fascinated by the concept of Odd Women.

Another from a Victorian Culture & Society course I took as an undergrad in the fall of 1989. (It's all coming back to me.)

According to some of my old college papers and files I came across recently, I was assigned to read this as an undergrad in a Victorian Culture & Society course in the fall of 1989. I'm sure (I hope?) some of it sunk in!

Hank Stuever and 1 other person liked Terry's review of Steve Jobs:
Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson
"This (biographies of tech and/or business titans) is definitely not at all what I usually read or want to read, and I found it well-written and fascinating enough to, well...read. I also found it heartily depressing: a person can behave abominably..." Read more of this review »

As forthcoming as he is, I kept getting the sense that the author was holding back certain details -- it remains a mystery to me how the worst of his symptoms, as he describes them, were and are something he can keep private, thanks to medication and ...more

You're Not Much Use to Anyone by David   Shapiro

Pathetic. (And yes, I do get it: it's about alt-lit, it's about the flat voice of the mind's constant status-updates, it's about how this generation is different to the bone than the previous ones, etc.) This is just a badly conceived, badly executed ...more
You're Not Much Use to Anyone by David   Shapiro
"I like alt-lit and You're Not Much Use to Anyone is no exception. Alt-lit is generally characterized by its matter of fact style and also the inclusion of modern technology. It feels like Minimalism must have felt in the 60s. Stripped down to noth..." Read more of this review »
