Kirkuk, Jeff Sessions, Somalia: Your Monday Briefing

• Quotation of the day. “I just smiled when I saw this because it was like the Mad Hatter’s tea party — it was my fantasy come to life.” — Kelia Remsen, who attends a weekly pop-up tea party in New York City. Back Story This month, the Trump administration expanded health insurance exemptions for employers, allowing them to deny women coverage for contraception. Margaret Sanger, who opened the first birth control clinic in the U.S. on this day in 1916, might have had something to say about that. Photo Outside the Sanger Clinic in Brooklyn shortly after it opened in 1916. Credit Social Press Association/Library of Congress, via Associated Press Sanger’s work was driven largely by her experience as a maternity nurse. Abortion was illegal at the time, and she frequently saw young women die after attempting abortions themselves. In 1914, Sanger fled to Europe to avoid a potential 45-year prison term for distributing information on birth control. […]

Mediator: Harvey Weinstein’s Media Enablers

“The unfortunate reality of Hollywood is that if someone has money, then they can generally find some kind of audience of people who are interested in working with them,” said Kim Masters, the editor at large at The Hollywood Reporter. This was particularly true of Mr. Weinstein, who, she said, was known for having “the golden touch” that produced “Pulp Fiction” and “Good Will Hunting,” “The King’s Speech” and “Shakespeare in Love.”Ms. Masters had been chasing the Weinstein story for years. She said she had gotten near “the end zone” once, only to bump up against the ultimate silencer: fear.“At the last minute, the source withdrew,” she told me.She said she wanted to believe that times were changing, given the number of women who have put their names to the words that derailed the careers of Bill Cosby, who faced criminal charges that resulted in a mistrial this year, and Bill O’Reilly. But she also wondered aloud whether trouble had finally found Mr. Weinstein because he was no longer the rainmaker and hitmaker he had once been.“This industry is passionate about causes,” Ms. Masters said, “but when it comes down to doing business, they’re definitely capable of holding their noses.”With the knowledge that the Times article was heading toward publication, and with word of a similar piece in the works at The New Yorker, Mr. Weinstein assembled an all-star team of crisis-management experts and lawyers that included Lisa Bloom. Ms. […]

The Boss on Broadway: Bruce Springsteen on His ‘First Real Job’

Those were more concert experiences. The sets would change. This is a locked-in piece of music and script that I’m going to be performing pretty much the same on a nightly basis. It’s a solidified piece of work. And I think the intimacy of the venue is going to really affect it, to make it quite a bit different from the acoustic tours. Though I don’t know if I’d be doing this without the experience of doing them. […]

Mexico, Donald Trump, Hurricane Maria: Your Wednesday Briefing

• Best of late-night TV. Jimmy Kimmel spent a full seven minutes excoriating Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana for going back on his word. • Quotation of the day. “The things that make us different, those are our superpowers.” — Lena Waithe, the first African-American woman to win an Emmy for outstanding writing in a comedy series, for “Master of None.” Back Story Today, we give you a slice of culinary history. The Times described pizza 73 years ago as “a pie made from a yeast dough and filled with any number of different centers.” “With the dexterity of a drum major wielding a baton, the baker picks one up and twirls it around, first in one hand and then in the other,” the report said, describing Luigino’s Pizzeria Alla Napoletana in Times Square.
