"I am almost inclined to set it up as a canon that a children's story which is enjoyed only by children is a bad children's story. The good ones last. A waltz which you can like only when you are waltzing is a bad waltz."

He has demeaned the site you have repeatedly glorified.

"Andor" reflects our ugly ambivalence, trafficking in antisemitic tropes while calling out fascism

Seems like abbreviation for abbreviation's sake. No added value or clarity. Unless your goal is to stay one step ahead of boomers (like me) still trying to wrap head around LMAO, AYFKMWTS, GTFOOH, WYOFB, etc.

I mean, these are what I think of when I think of classically constructed ghost stories. And (as it not always the case with even very efficient and enjoyable ghost stories, which are often more concerned with plot than anything else), these are extremely well written.

do you happen to remember the source/location of this narrative? I've got a student interested in Cushman, and I'd love to share.

I can't remember what I was reading at the time, but plenty comes up when you google "charlotte cushman oliver twist." It might well have been this:…

You absolute living doll, you.
Why didn't any of you tell me how good M. R. James is? (Yes, I know, a thousand of you have told me, shut up.) Anyway, he's really good.
President Trump hosting racist antisemites for dinner encourages other racist antisemites. These attitudes are immoral and should not be entertained. This is not the Republican Party.

Yay. Saving 1 keystroke good. No mercy for interrobang tho.

Lighted/lit? American English seems to prefer the former, to the extent I am seriously considering quitting literary cigarettes altogether.

I would argue that 'shrunk' is past perfect, like 'swum.'
You can argue all you like, and you’ll still be wrong.

Modjeska was gaslit.

Ingrid Bergman was gaslighted.
My friend @writer_trey is not going to be happy about this. Also, a tip I learned from @BCDreyer: the past tense of “gaslight” in this sense is “gaslighted,” not “gaslit.”

Kevin McCarthy has no ideology, no core set of beliefs.

He knows he can't become Speaker without support from the QAnon contingent of his members.

So he will do whatever they ask, and remove me from the Intel Committee for holding Trump accountable.

He stands for nothing.
A plea to @BCDreyer : On at least four occasions this week, I’ve noticed “shrunk” used in print journalism when “shrank” ought to have been employed. Is “shrank” falling out of usage?
Replying to @SBarronAuthor
shrank and shrunk are interchangeable, like dreamed and dreamt or pleaded and pled just a matter of taste

It opened in London in 1938 as Gas Light; it opened in 1941 on Broadway as Angel Street.
Replying to @BCDreyer @GJMaupin
The two-wording of the UK title is perhaps odd, given that the one-word "gaslight" had long been prevalent there (and here).
In reply to @BCDreyer
Trying to decide whether their claim that it was the title of the 1938 play is a minor boo-boo or a clever attempt to give an example of the phenomenon.
