    Cersei Lannister may have been onto something: In the end, it did feel pretty good. Season 6 of Game of Thrones was brutal. It hacked through plotlines and characters with abandon, and served up the resulting carnage in great, steaming heaps. But you can’t say it didn’t satisfy. Out of deference to the now truly Late Lord Frey, let’s table the question of how the meat pie was made, and savor the taste for a moment.

    Trevor Noah spent his first night as host of The Daily Show eagerly reassuring viewers that this was the same show we had watched and loved for 16 years. And in most ways, it was: Jon Stewart’s team of writers and producers stayed on, and last night’s episode maintained the same formula and structure

    Bernie Sanders spent the better part of three decades in national politics trying to bring ideas that would strike most of the democratic world as fairly conventional into the mainstream of American politics. From 1990 through 2015, the congressman-then-senator from Vermont had to content himself with a cult following on the progressive left and a reputation for decency that eludes most politicians.

    When I first read Dreams From My Father, I had the uncanny feeling that I myself was the subject of the book. As Barack Obama recounted the joys of his boyhood in Indonesia—running around with the children of servants, “battling swift kites with razor-sharp lines,” eating exotic delicacies like grasshopper—it was as if, in some mind-bending Borgesian sense, I was both the reader and being read.

    In June 1975, a Yale economist named William Nordhaus published a paper for the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, an Austrian think tank. In the paper, he put forward a theory about a potentially globe-altering climate-change Red Line - a threshold that, if crossed, could result in a fusillade of environmental dangers. Research suggested that a rise in carbon-dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels might melt the Arctic Sea ice, prompting a dramatic increase in rain and surface temperatures.

    At some point before this past Friday, it dawned on Donald Trump and his aides that they couldn’t avoid a rendezvous with his birther destiny before voters go to the polls in November, and that his first debate with Hillary Clinton - what promises to be one of the most watched events in television history - was likely to be the place for it. Their response to this realization has been one of the purest expressions of Trump’s extraordinary and alarming approach to politics since he launched his campaign last summer.

    These voices in Balestrini’s novels are always one person speaking anonymously as a type. The voices have all the specificity of an individual - a set of attitudes, moods, prejudices, back stories - but they each speak in a way that exemplifies what life was like for a person such as them, in a moment when there were many like them. They are works that capture and illuminate voice. Voices speaking, rather than words written.

    There isn’t much daylight these days between the Democratic candidates on the environment. Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and Martin O’Malley all agree that humans are responsible for climate change and that it’s one of the world’s most pressing problems. To that end, they support clean energy tax breaks, reject drilling offshore and in the Arctic, and oppose the (now-rejected) Keystone XL pipeline. But there’s one environmental issue where Sanders truly stands apart: He wants to ban hydraulic fracturing outright.

    Trump’s willingness to alienate the intelligence community and its allies in the military might seem strange, but it points to something important about his worldview. For all his bluster about making other nations respect America again and fighting terrorism, Trump cares more about domestic security. Here, as elsewhere, he has an “American First” approach—and that’s why he’s been solicitous to police and the FBI, and hostile to the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
