So here is Mr. Biden, answering his “special calling.” He has always been a gifted retail campaigner with a knack for snapping into empathy mode whenever people share their stories of grief and hardship. Mr. Biden noted that creating a public option to compete with private insurance could be done much quicker than a complete overhaul of the health care system.

Some proposals have passed the House and have bipartisan support in the Senate, including one that would force brand-name drug makers to turn over samples of their drugs to would-be competitors so cheaper copies can be developed. Other measures would limit the so-called “pay-for-delay” deals brokered by brand-name drug companies and generic manufacturers to postpone competition.

“Dear Brother,” a poem from Skeets’s revelatory debut, begins with the line “You kissed a man the way I do,” a statement that momentarily suggests communion between the gay speaker and his brother. But Skeets’s poetry is wilier, more harrowing than that. The line drops into its turn and shows the brothers at odds: “You kissed a man the way I do / but with a handgun. You called it; I’m the fag / we were afraid to know.” Throughout this book, Skeets challenges toxic masculinity with a queer coming-of-age narrative that’s knowingly reminiscent of D. A. Powell’s “Useless Landscape, or A Guide for Boys” — but distinctly oriented within Navajo culture and the landscape of Gallup, N.M. Boys there, Skeets writes, “are often the wind / always a howl” and “know becoming a man / means knowing how to become charcoal.” Masculinity leads to premature death, from violence or alcoholism. One elegized figure is Benson James, the poet’s uncle, whose portrait, taken by Richard Avedon in 1979, appears on the cover. Stabbed to death within a year of the picture, James becomes “a mirror / if I stare long enough,” Skeets writes. Can the speaker escape his uncle’s fate? The book’s triangulation between violence, self-destruction and desire leads Skeets to declare that “the closest men become is when they are covered in blood / or nothing at all.” By turns elegiac and erotic, the collection is also lush with language whose music evokes the landscape. This is one of the most accomplished and emotionally engaging debuts I have read, one that shows a man “unlearns how to hold a fist” by holding another man’s hand. Spreading the word was central to the advancement of democracy and to the Modern’s core mission. Toward that end, “Useful Objects” did whistle-stop tours of the country; and repackaged, retitled versions of “Good Design,” among other MoMA design shows, traveled abroad during the Cold War under the aegis of the State Department, advertising the fruits of Western freedom and ingenuity.

In the past, President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela often turned to Russia for support. That is looking increasingly untenable, Anatoly Kurmanaev writes for the NYT.
Which isn’t to say that “Under the Silver Lake” is without some diverting qualities. The light, for one thing. Mitchell and his director of photography, Mike Gioulakis, savor the gorgeousness that has seduced so many previous filmmakers. And there are some moments of humor and surprise embedded in the overwrought intricacies and long slack stretches of the plot. But beyond the coy nostalgia and the timid satire is a feeling of bottomless exhaustion. Paul Moreno, a PG&E spokesman, said in a statement that the utility was “looking at all options when it comes to working with the governor and legislature.”

While that figure is accurate — agricultural exports are projected to be 1.5 billion in 2019, compared with 9.6 billion in 2016 — the president is omitting that exports are expected to decline from 2018, when they totaled 3.4 billion. Moreover, agricultural imports are expected to increase in 2019, and the balance in agricultural trade is forecast to be the lowest in seven years.
