The video was made by a private citizen named Shawn Brooks, who seems to have been a freelance political operative producing a wealth of pro-Trump web content. (Mr. Brooks denies creating the video, though according to the Daily Beast, Facebook confirmed he was the first to upload it.) Some commenters quickly suggested that the Daily Beast was wrong to expose Mr. Brooks. After all, they argued, he’s only one person, not a Russian secret agent or a powerful public relations firm; and it feels like “punching down” for a major news organization to turn the spotlight on one rogue amateur.

I told her to call me sometime. We hugged. Olivia told me, “I must say how incredible it is that you and Emma agreed to that,” but I don’t think either of us gave it a second thought. It was decided by people who are specialists in these things, and it seemed incredibly natural: Narratively, we’re both supporting the queen, so she’s got to be the lead.

Schedule a Trip“NO-NO BOY” was published by Charles E. Tuttle the year after Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl” and James Baldwin’s “Giovanni’s Room.” Like those books, it is a kind of generational reckoning with American bigotry. Unlike them, it gained little notice upon its release. It tells the story of Ichiro Yamada, a second-generation Japanese-American, or Nisei (a Japanese term for the generation born in the United States; those who immigrated from Japan are considered first-generation Americans, or Issei), who has just returned home to Seattle at the end of World War II. He is one of several hundred Japanese-Americans who refused to be drafted into service while incarcerated by the American government and were consequently sent to federal prison. The book’s title refers to the act of answering no to two questions in a mandatory survey issued by the government in February 1943, midway through the war, to all persons over the age of 17 in the camps: The first asked if men and women would be willing to serve in the armed forces if qualified. The second asked if they were willing to swear their allegiance to the United States and, in essence, renounce Japanese citizenship. It was a confusing, poorly conceived set of questions: The Issei could not become American citizens because of the discriminatory naturalization laws of the time, and would effectively be rendered stateless if they answered yes to the second. Meanwhile, most Nisei, who were already American citizens, objected to the suggestion that they had ever been loyal to the Japanese emperor. As a result of answering no or failing to respond to these questions, about 12,000 people were branded as disloyal and segregated in the harshest camp at Tule Lake, in California. “I wondered how long it was going to take you to figure out you couldn’t live in New York City on that,” he said. “What do you say to another 0 a month?”
