United States Nation-Building in South Sudan: A Foreign Policy of Ignorant Arrogance
Huffington Post - about 1 year
On November 17, 2016, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, declared that she would soon introduce a resolution in the Security Council to impose an arms embargo on South Sudan; and, to place travel restrictions and freeze the assets of certain persons deemed responsible for the grisly violence convulsing the new nation. South Sudan was midwifed by the United States from Sudan five years ago. The United Nations special advisor on the prevention of genocide, Adama Dieng, after a recent visit to South Sudan, discerned the "potential for genocide." United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon warned in a report that United Nations peacekeepers deployed to South Sudan could not diminish "a very real risk of mass atrocities. Thereby hangs another tale of the United States foreign policy of ignorant arrogance in nation-building. It is a task for political geniuses, who can be counted on one hand with fingers left over. Republics cannot be summo...

Woody Allen Is Not an Angel
Huffington Post - over 1 year
A well-known writer emailed me when I started my biography of Woody Allen: "Tell! Tell!" She added, "I was shocked! Shocked!" I asked her what she was shocked about. She shared with me the explosive info that she had sat next to Woody's table at Elaine's and that she thought that he and two friends were exchanging notes about threesomes. I assured her I'd heard far worse among my own writer friends over a lifetime. "Writers are not pussycats," I wrote her, "at least none of the hundreds I've known." Woody Allen is not an angel. As his third and current biographer, I can attest to it. That does not mean he is a pedophile who molested his and Mia Farrow's adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, as a child. Twenty-three years after the alleged events, Mia Farrow, aided by her children Dylan and Ronan, continues to wage a campaign against him. They insist that Woody did molest his seven-year-old daughter and that in spite of this, the "old school" media is colluding in protecting him, that m...

Older woman, younger man? A 'valid comic idea' to Woody Allen
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
After unveiling his latest film, "Cafe Society", in Cannes, featuring a love story between a young woman and powerful older man, Allen was asked if he would ever consider switching the roles -- something still somewhat taboo on the big screen. As if to inspire him, French film queen Catherine Deneuve, 72, drew a standing ovation for a long and passionate kiss with French actor Laurent Lafitte, 42, on stage at the opening of the festival. Allen has had a turbulent personal life clouded by scandal after entering a relationship with Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his former partner Mia Farrow, when Previn was only 21.

<i>Finding Your Roots</i> Looks to Find Its Footing, Again, After Misstep on Affleck's Slave-Owning Ancestor
Huffington Post - about 2 years
One of the last TV shows you'd expect to find dusting itself off from a small, but embarrassing content-suppression scandal would be Finding Your Roots, Professor Henry L. Gates's genealogy program on PBS. But the show's third season, which premieres Jan. 5 at 8 p.m., will have to explore the roots of several dozen new subjects in the mildly uncomfortable shadow of previous guest Ben Affleck. Gates's lineup this season will include the likes of Bill O'Reilly, Shonda Rhimes, Jimmy Kimmel, Dustin Hoffman, Mia Farrow, Julianne Moore, Norman Lear, Senator John McCain, LL Cool J, Puffy Combs, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, Keenen Ivory Wayans and Gloria Steinem. The keen observer will note that they are all famous, and that's something for which Gates has never apologized. Starpower, he has always explained, provides a means of drawing viewers' attention to the fascinating field of genealogy. "When they see what our researchers uncovered about someone like Stephen King," Gates said...

Read This: The Beautiful, Glamorous, Brutal, Legendary Life of Frank Sinatra
Huffington Post - about 2 years
This article first appeared in The National Book Review By Adam Cohen Sinatra: The Chairman By James Kaplan Doubleday 992 pp. $35 In 1960, Frank Sinatra had an unexpected guest on his ABC television special: Elvis Presley. Sinatra, the consummate old-school crooner, had called rock-and-roll a "rancid smelling aphrodisiac" that was "sung, played and written for the most part by cretinous goons." But by 1960, it was clear that rock was the future, and Sinatra was shrewd enough to forge an alliance with one of the hottest goons. The joint appearance was a rousing success, and the Chairman of the Board and the King even joined in an unlikely cross-genre duet, with Sinatra singing a jazz version of "Love Me Tender," while Elvis answered with a rockabilly version of the Sinatra classic "Witchcraft." That prime-time TV testament to Sinatra's entertainment skills, talent for self-creation, and general charm is one of a landslide of high-wattage stories in Sinatra: The Chairm...
