The Devil Made Me Do It — The Devil Made Me Do It is a group of recipes curated by New York Times editors.

McDormand makes no room for vanity — The statuette performed questionably in both roles, failing to muster any clever banter or a single win. Adapted from Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of stories, "Olive" is set in an unremarkable Maine town and traces several decades in the emphatically ordinary existences of its title character - a frumpy, grumpy math teacher - and her milquetoast husband, a couple played by McDormand and Richard Jenkins.

Fathers, Sons and the Presidency — I'M always thinking back to that lunch in Kennebunkport, because I saw it all there: what drove George W. Bush toward the presidency; what shaped so many of his decisions in office. I was interviewing his parents at the family's compound on the Maine coast.

Capitalism’s suffocating music — Originally published Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 5:11 PM Onstage before thousands of fans, Sam Smith sang "Stay With Me," beseeching his partner in a one-night stand for a few minutes more, and I half wondered if the two of them needed the extra time to finish bottles of Miller Lite, because a printed plug for the beer hovered over his head.

The Virus of Cynicism — WE have no clue at this point how far Ebola could spread in the United States - and no reason for panic. But one dimension of the disease's toll is clear. It's ravaging Americans' already tenuous faith in the competence of our government and its bureaucracies.

What’s scarier than Ebola — Originally published Wednesday, October 15, 2014 at 5:24 PM We Americans do panic really well. We could use a few pointers on prudence. Do me a favor. Turn away from the ceaseless media coverage of Ebola in Texas - the interviews with the Dallas nurse's neighbors, the hand-wringing over her pooch, the instructions on protective medical gear - and answer this: Have you had your flu shot?

Forget Ebola, get a flu shot — We Americans do panic really well.We could use a few pointers on prudence.Do me a favor. Turn away from the ceaseless media coverage of Ebola in Texas - the interviews with the Dallas nurses' neighbors, the hand-wringing over the pooch, the instructions on protective medical gear - and answer this: Have you had your flu shot?

Frances McDormand, True to Herself in HBO’s ‘Olive Kitteridge’ — Frances McDormand's Oscar, for "Fargo," isn't easily spotted. It's tucked into a corner of the floor-to-ceiling shelving that hems the foyer of her Manhattan home, a glint of gold among hundreds of books. But odder than its hiding place is its eyewear.
