Three years ago, my cousin tried to kill me. When people ask why, I don’t know what to say. Usually I mumble that he didn’t have a reason. I say that he didn’t even think he had a reason. We had no argument that day or any other in 40 years. I say that we didn’t think of each other merely as cousins. We were best friends. We spoke for hours every week, often late at night, squinting through the portal of a video chat to exchange complaints about our lives and show off household projects. I say that we had been planning for months to get together that weekend. We organized a family reunion at his house. My son and I were staying in his guest room, while a swarm of aunts and uncles and cousins spilled into a nearby hotel. I had spent the day with them, watching our kids play in the hotel pool, and everyone was planning to gather at my cousin’s house for a party that evening. I say that none of our relatives knew there was conflict between my cousin and me. … [Read more...] about My Cousin Was My Hero. Until the Day He Tried to Kill Me.

The search warrant was short and succinct, dated August 3, 9:41 a.m. F.B.I. special agent Diader Rosario was instructed to produce "hair samples (twenty-five pulled [#image: /photos/54cc00ef44a199085e8992d3]and twenty-five combed hairs from the head)" of Richard Allensworth Jewell. That Saturday, Atlanta was humid; the temperature would rise to 85 degrees. There were 34 Olympic events scheduled, including women's team handball, but Richard Jewell was in his mother's apartment playing Defender on a computer set up in the spare bedroom. Jewell hadn't slept at all the night before, or the night before that. He could hear the noise from the throng of reporters massed on the hill outside the small apartment in the suburbs. All morning long, he had been focused on the screen, trying to score off "the little guy who goes back and forth shooting the aliens," but at 12:30 the sound of the telephone disturbed his concentration. Very few people had his new number, by necessity unlisted. Since the … [Read more...] about American Nightmare: The Ballad of Richard Jewell

Chapter 1 “Inmates Run This Bitch” Chapter 2 Prison Experiments Chapter 3 The CCA Way Chapter 4 “You Got to Survive” Chapter 5 Lockdown Chapter 1: “Inmates Run This Bitch” Have you ever had a riot?” I ask a recruiter from a prison run by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). I take a breath. Am I really going to become a prison guard? Now that it might actually happen, it feels scary and a bit extreme. From the editor: Why we sent a reporter to work as a private prison guard I started applying for jobs in private prisons because I wanted to see the inner workings of an industry that holds 131,000 of the nation’s 1.6 million prisoners. As a journalist, it’s nearly impossible to get an unconstrained look inside our penal system. When prisons do let reporters in, it’s usually for carefully managed tours and monitored interviews with inmates. … [Read more...] about Private prisons are shrouded in secrecy.

At Beatles anniversary time, the stories write themselves. “It was 25/30/40 years ago today!” “The act you’ve known for all these years!” “A splendid time was guaranteed for all!” Last week’s 50th anniversary of the U.S. release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the most acclaimed rock album ever and the apogee of the Beatles’ cultural influence in the 1960s, is a time for all those chestnuts and more. But Pepper’s doesn’t make sense if it’s not put in context. And the only way to do that, given the weight of the Beatles’ presence, is to take a look at everything the band put on record over its eight-year recording career. It turns out that ranking the songs recorded by the Beatles in the 1960s is easy; you put the worst one at the top, and the best one at the bottom. The list is based on the band’s British releases, which is how they thought of their work. In the U.K. in the 1960s, the … [Read more...] about All 213 Beatles Songs, Ranked From Worst to Best
