  • Cause of Death: Living

    On March 29, California superior court judge Elihu Berle ruled that most coffee sold in the Golden State will have to bear a warning label stating that it may increase the likelihood of cancer. Roasted coffee contains traces of the carcinogen acrylamide, and so Californians, if the ruling stands, must be warned every time they buy a cup of coffee or a bag of beans that they're risking their lives. The plaintiff in the case, a busybody nonprofit called the Council for Education and Research on...

  • Bhagwan’s Death Wish

    “In my childhood I loved to follow everybody very much. Whosoever died, I would be there. Even my parents became very afraid; they would say, Why do you go? We don’t even know that man . . .” “I would say, ‘That is not the point. The man is not my concern. Death—it is such a beautiful phenomenon, and one of the most mysterious.

  • Why are the poor blamed and shamed for their deaths?

I watched in dismay as most of my educated, middle-class friends began, at the onset of middle age, to obsess about their health and likely longevity. Even those who were at one point determined to change the world refocused on changing their bodies. They undertook exercise or yoga regimens; they filled their calendars with medical tests and exams; they...

  • The Provocative Brilliance of The Death of Stalin

    Judging from the index of my encyclopedia of Soviet jokes, Stalin was the greatest source of humor in Soviet history. His fatal progress is charted by jokes about him purging the Politburo, perverting Communism, tearing down churches, causing food shortages, sending people to prison and the Gulag, and, of course, ordering executions. Terror and humor are not incompatible; fear often explodes in laughter. Countless people were sent to the Gulag for a joke made in the wrong company. In Scottish...
