Sony, Security and the End of Privacy — THERE'S a square in the upper right-hand corner of your computer keyboard that probably looks more banged up than it did a week or two ago. It's the one marked "delete." I'll bet that you've been giving it a workout lately, pressing it hard and often, moving relentlessly backward over your emails, fretting and fussing and killing off nearly as many words as you birth.

Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and the 2016 Presidential Campaign — AS brothers who governed large states at the same time, each Bush was bound to be defined in terms of the other. George was the impulsive one who'd stumbled and then swaggered toward success. Jeb was the cogitator, the toiler. George was the extrovert: He worked the room.

Hillary 2.0 Would Be Hillary XX — NOVEMBER 2016 is still a long way off, but it's hard to imagine that the presidential campaign will provide any bit of advertising as strangely entertaining and revealing as a video put online recently by Stand With Hillary, a new "super PAC." Haven't seen it? Oh you must. Right now.

Charity Is Told It Must Abide By Antidiscrimination Laws — The Bush administration declined a request today from the Salvation Army, the nation's largest charity, to exempt religious charities that receive federal money from local laws that bar discrimination against homosexuals.

Will the Oscars Go to Heaven (‘Interstellar’) or Earth (‘Birdman’)? — Ross Douthat: It's a pleasure to be back with you, here in the fall movie season's eye-of-the-storm moment, when we get a chance to take a breath and catch up on all the prestige movies released before Thanksgiving - or, you know, take the kids to "Penguins of Madagascar," depending - before the Christmas hurricane arrives.

Bruni: Tiny communities of sameness — In college you're supposed to be testing a new altitude of independence. So why join a club whose demand for fealty is such that it often comes with a hazing ritual? You should be cultivating the kind of sensibility that makes you a better citizen of a diverse and distressingly fractious society.

Just Plane Ugly - — THE woman in 27E doesn't have only one carry-on plus a small bag for a laptop or personal items. She has one carry-on plus a purse the size of a bassinet plus some canvas vessel for all of her electronics plus two different plastic totes for various pillows, blankets and possibly an ottoman and a coffee table.

Yelping Warriors, and Rocks in the Broth — CONFUSING the point of a restaurant with the mission of a "Saturday Night Live" skit, Ninja New York deposits you in a kooky, dreary subterranean labyrinth that seems better suited to coal mining than to supping.

When Italians meet turkey — Originally published Wednesday, November 26, 2014 at 4:14 PM Thanksgiving Day is upon us, and I haven't yet summoned the nerve to tell Uncle Mario and Aunt Carolyn, who host it, that I may not arrive until a quarter after noon.

On Thanksgiving, an Abundance That's About Much More Than Food — Thanksgiving Day is almost upon us, and I haven't yet summoned the nerve to tell Uncle Mario and Aunt Carolyn, who host it, that I may not arrive until a quarter past noon.
