During my wedding reception a month ago, one of the guests (a friend of my mom’s) poured a glass of water on the DJ’s laptop because he felt the music was too loud and he wanted it shut down.
The incident was blamed on too much alcohol, and it ruined the rest of the evening.
Many guests were upset and left.
The man ended up paying the DJ to replace the laptop and sent us a note of apology for his behavior.
Mom thinks I should “do the right thing” and thank them for the gift.
Dear Survivor: I know of no rule of etiquette that forbids addressing the note only to her.
Dear Abby: I am divorcing my husband who cuts himself.
Promising to stop self-harming behavior is not enough.
Unless your husband is willing to get the necessary psychotherapy it will take for him to keep his promise, nothing will change.
The question is, if your husband is willing to get the help he needs and shows he is following through, would it have any effect on your decision to divorce him?
The problem is, she wants us to continue treating him as family at gatherings and celebrations.
What you were hoping your daughter’s boyfriend would give her for her birthday is irrelevant.
The first graphic novel ever to win a Pulitzer Prize, “Maus” was based on interviews with Spiegelman’s harsh Holocaust-survivor father, as much a dissection of their fraught relationship as a condemnation of the horrors of Auschwitz.
If the sins of the fathers are visited upon the sons, so are the sins of the mothers, grandmothers and great-grandmothers visited upon the daughters.
In this first book by Art Spiegelman’s daughter, those sins are cause for a fierce exhumation of the author’s maternal lineage.
Throughout the author’s childhood, her mother — who had fled Paris for New York to escape her own troubled French family, then became a woman about town and, ultimately, art director at the New Yorker — was Nadja’s protector and idol.
What Nadja learned about her mother’s childhood sent her flying to Paris to interview her grandmother Josée about the mother-daughter enmity that seemed to have been passed down in each successive mother’s milk.
 the ferocious honesty with which Nadja Spiegelman tells her story and those of her female progenitors indicates that she took her father’s critique to heart.
Recounting decades of multigenerational emotional, physical and sexual abuse, Nadja spares no wince-worthy detail, protecting no one.
Neither her lyricism nor the stylistic liberties she takes with the memoir’s structure, bouncing around in time as actual memory does, can soften the impact of what the mothers in Nadja Spiegelman’s family did to their daughters.
In a book populated by so many unreliable narrators, the reader longs for the author to rise above the fray, pointing the reader toward the truth — if such a thing exists — when her progenitors’ memories clash.
A few years ago Russo-American journalist Masha Gessen was back living in Moscow, having returned there to report on Russia’s cyclically oppressive politics.
Like her parents in the 1970s, who faced relentless persecution as Jews in the Soviet Union, Gessen decided that her home had become too dangerous, too threatening.
Everyone, at least for a short time, seemed to agree that the Jews, that enterprising people, could turn Birobidzhan into a homeland where the language would be Yiddish and the Jewish difference could flourish without disturbing the Soviet Union’s agenda.
The Yiddish writer David Bergelson was one of those who celebrated the prospects of the new homeland — albeit from the comfort of cities far, far away from the autonomous region and its harsh conditions.
 Hitler’s solution to the Jewish problem was to be final, so marshaling support for Soviet Russia was crucial for saving Jewish communities from annihilation.
After the war, thousands of Jewish survivors, having been liberated from concentration camps, returned to their homes to face vicious violence from former neighbors who had taken over their properties.
Bergelson’s wartime efforts to rally support for Jews fighting against fascism was recoded as a “nationalistic” mistake, although Jews could still be persecuted for having no allegiances, for their “rootless cosmopolitanism.”
Yiddish language books were burned at Sholem Aleichem Library to show comrade Stalin that these poor souls understood their “bourgeois nationalist mistakes.”
In any case, her real interest is less the homeland than the writers, like Bergelson, who can never feel at home — those who must always wonder when it’s time to leave, who must decide when to run, when to stick it out.
Bergelson, says Gessen, was “trying to square the circle of Jewishness in a world that did not want Jews, protecting the seeds of a religion he did not practice, and insisting on his right to try to keep alive a dying language.”
Why Liberal Education Matters and Memory, Trauma and History:
In 1999, in a book titled “Unrestricted Warfare,” Qiao Liang and Wang Jiangsui, two colonels in China’s People’s Liberation Army, predicted that violent conflict would soon transcend all limits: “The battlefields will be everywhere” and the boundaries between “the worlds of war and not war, of military and non-military, will be destroyed.”
In “How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything,” Brooks provides a masterful analysis of how global connectedness has created vast new responsibilities (and vulnerabilities) for the armed forces of the United States, including cybersecurity, intelligence gathering, the interdiction of drugs, guarding and prosecuting “detainees,” conducting drone strikes against suspected terrorists, apprehending pirates, training judges, building Ebola isolation wards, distributing relief to people suffering from famine, natural disasters and civil war.
A senior fellow at the New America Foundation, a professor of law at Georgetown University and a consultant for Human Rights Watch, Brooks also worked as a senior adviser at the U.
