    World Affairs The United States in the Middle East: No Strategy, No Exit While the United States has brought unparalleled force to the Middle East over the past 25 years, it has become much more diminished politically and diplomatically. The invasion of Iraq, Arab uprisings, Syrian civil war and the Islamic State challenge, among other developments, have vastly complicated the politics of the region, but Washington seems to lack both a strategy and an exit plan. Steven Cook, senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, shares his insights on how interest creep has contributed to indecisive American policy and prolonged US military involvement.

    City Arts & Lectures Daniel Handler Daniel Handler is the author of the novels The Basic Eight, Watch Your Mouth, Adverbs, and, with Maira Kalman, Why We Broke Up. As Lemony Snicket, he has written the best-selling series All The Wrong Questions as well as A Series of Unfortunate Events which was the basis of a feature film starring Jim Carrey and Meryl Streep, with Jude Law as Lemony Snicket. Netflix has produced an original series based on A Series of Unfortunate Events which premiered January 2017. Handlers newest novel, All The Dirty Parts, looks honestly at the erotic impulses of an all-too-typical young man. Cole is a boy in high school. He runs cross country, he sketches, he jokes around with friends. But none of this quite matters next to the allure of sex. Let me put it this way, he says. Draw a number line, with zero is you never think about sex and ten is, its all you think about, and while you are drawing the line, I am thinking about sex. All The Dirty Parts is an unblinking take on teenage desire in a culture of unrelenting explicitness and shunted communication, where sex feels like love, but no one knows what love feels like. With short chapters in the style of Jenny Offill or Mary Robison, Daniel Handler gives us a tender, brutal, funny, intoxicating portrait of an age when the lens of sex tilts the world. There are love stories galore, Cole tells us, This isnt that. The story Im typing is all the dirty parts.

    1A with Joshua Johnson 'Meet The Press' Turns 70 No show has been on TV longer than NBC's Meet the Press. Since its launch in 1947, the show has been the go-to program for politicians, journalists and anyone else who is making news. The show began when its medium - television - was in its infancy, and both have grown up together. With viewership changing and a president who is ready to declare critical coverage "fake news," how does the "Meet The Press" keep up with the news and with the changing realities of media today?
