Iran’s Protest Goes Viral

Iranian officials have cut off key communication conduits within the country and barred access to foreign news broadcasts as election protests rage on. But protesters have found ways to get information by other means: They have turned to social media tools such as Twitter and Facebook.

Megan Hustad on Class in America

Two memoirs—Eve Pell’s “We Used to Own the Bronx” and Christopher Buckley’s “Losing Mum and Pup”—demonstrate, each in its own way, that all that glitters is not gold and that the price exacted by extreme social anxiety is very high indeed. A feast of the higher gossip and raw meat for social anthropologists.

Actors Reach ‘Devastatingly Unsatisfactory’ Agreement with Studios

iPhones for Everybody?

Apple unveiled a faster, more powerful version of its popular iPhone Monday, but the bigger news is that the company slashed the price of the current model to $99.

Susie Linfield on How to Think About the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

A provocative new book, “One State, Two States,” by revisionist Israeli historian Benny Morris breaks a taboo by asking whether anti-Zionism has become the anti-imperialism of fools.

Obama Picks Lakers in 6

Dress the White House in purple and gold, the president is backing Los Angeles in the NBA finals. It’s probably because of his uncommonly good taste and high basketball IQ, but it could also have something to do with the 39 percentage points by which he won Los Angeles in the presidential election.
