A New Government and Vidal Signs

This week on Tablet

(Margarita Korol/Tablet Magazine)

This week in Tablet Magazine, Benny Morris explained the historical precedent for Israel’s new national unity coalition. Liel Leibovitz eulogized a chef you’ve never heard of, but will wish you had. And Ben Cohen told us just how awesome the late Vidal Sassoon was.

On The Scroll, Maurice Sendak, z”l. In an extraordinary and shocking (except in hindsight) move, Prime Minister Netanyahu formed a coalition with Kadima, which reminded Liel Leibovitz of the stagnant national-unity governments of the 1980s. David Albright explained what should be most worrying us about Iran’s nuclear program. Based on his advisers, Mitt Romney can be expected to espouse a George W. Bush-style foreign policy.

Barack Obama became the first sitting president to endorse gay marriage.

The election of a left-wing president arguably empowered the far right. And speaking of the far right, check out these Greeks. Al Monitor was profiled, Roman Polanski mocked, baseball player Josh Hamilton unfavorably compared to baseball player Shawn Green. We told Barbra Streisand what she should sing in Brooklyn.

And we jammed to the 10 best Carole King songs you didn’t know are Carole King songs; plus “I Feel the Earth Move,” cause we do.
