The Sunday Read: ?Laurie Anderson Has a Message for Us Humans?

When the Hirshhorn Museum told Laurie Anderson that it wanted to put on a big, lavish retrospective of her work, she said no.

For one thing, she was busy and has been for roughly 50 years. Over the course of her incessant career, Ms. Anderson has done just about everything a creative person can do. She helped design an Olympics opening ceremony, served as the official artist in residence for NASA, made an opera out of ?Moby-Dick? and played a concert for dogs at the Sydney Opera House. And she is still going.

On top of all this, Ms. Anderson had philosophical qualms about a retrospective. She is 74, which seems like a very normal age to stop and look back, and yet she seems determined, at all times, to keep moving forward.

The Sunday Read: ?He Was the ?Perfect Villain? for Voting Conspiracists?

Over the past decade, Eric Coomer has helped make Dominion Voting Systems one of the largest providers of voting machines and software in the United States.

He was accustomed to working long days during the postelection certification process, but November 2020 was different.

President Trump was demanding recounts. His allies had spent months stoking fears of election fraud. And then, on Nov. 8, Sidney Powell, a lawyer representing the Trump campaign, appeared on Fox News and claimed, without evidence, that Dominion had an algorithm that switched votes from Trump to Joe Biden.

This is the story of how the 2020 election upended Mr. Coomer?s life.

The Sunday Read: ?I Had a Chance to Travel Anywhere. Why Did I Pick Spokane??

Jon Mooallem, the author of today?s Sunday Read, had a bad pandemic.

?I began having my own personal hard time,? he writes. ?The details aren?t important. Let?s just say, I felt as if I were moldering in place.?

Then, The New York Times Magazine offered him the opportunity to fly somewhere for its travel issue ? at that point he had spent 17 months parenting two demanding children. So, he asked: ?What if I drove to Spokane?? Jon had been curious about it for years.

Spokane, Wash., is the birthplace of Father?s Day, the hometown of Bing Crosby and a city with a sequence of wide, rocky waterfalls pouring through its center like a Cubist boulevard.

?I also knew that Spokane was a city with a history of minor-league baseball that stretched back more than a hundred years,? Jon writes. ?A minor-league game felt like a manageable, belated step into the mid-pandemic lifestyle that people were calling post-pandemic life.?

The Sunday Read: ?Why Was Vicha Ratanapakdee Killed??

Throughout 2020, multiple strangers came at Monthanus Ratanapakdee seemingly out of nowhere. An old man yelled at her in Golden Gate Park ? something about a virus and going back to her country. When she discussed these incidents, her father would ask, ?Is it really that bad??

Her father, Vicha Ratanapakdee, 84, was a lifelong Buddhist, the kind of person who embraced the world with open arms. During the coronavirus pandemic, he usually left the house before 8 a.m. and made it back before his grandsons started their Zoom classes.

This year, on the morning of Jan. 28, he headed out. A surveillance video captured what happened next. A tall figure suddenly darts across a street and slams into a much smaller one; the smaller figure crumples onto the pavement and doesn?t get back up.

Mr. Ratanapakdee's death helped awaken the nation to a rise in anti-Asian violence. For his grieving family, the reckoning hasn?t gone far enough.

The Sunday Read: ?The Composer at the Frontier of Movie Music?

You have almost certainly heard Nicholas Britell?s music, even if you don?t know his name. More than any other contemporary composer, he appears to have the whole of music history at his command, shifting easily between vocabularies, often in the same film.

His most arresting scores tend to fuse both ends of his musical education. ?Succession? is 18th-century court music married to heart-pounding beats; ?Moonlight? chops and screws a classical piano-and-violin duet as if it?s a Three 6 Mafia track.

Britell?s C.V. reads like the setup for a comedy flick: a Harvard-educated, world-class pianist who studied psychology and once played in a moderately successful hip-hop band, who wound up managing portfolios on Wall Street.

That is until he started scoring movies, and quickly acquired Academy Award nominations.

?What I?ve found in the past,? said Jon Burlingame, a film-music historian, ?is that people have found it impossible to incorporate such modern musical forms as hip-hop into dramatic underscore for films. When Nick did it in ?Moonlight,? I was frankly stunned. I didn?t think it was possible.?

Mexico?s Path to Legalizing Abortion

In a major turn of events in Mexico, which has one of the largest Catholic populations in the world, its Supreme Court last week decriminalized abortions.

The Supreme Court ruling is a milestone for Mexico?s feminist movement. But change might not come quickly: Abortion law is mostly administered at the state level in Mexico, much of the country remains culturally conservative, and many Mexican medical workers are morally opposed to abortion.

In a country where polls indicate most people don?t believe that abortion should be legal, what effect will the ruling have in practice?

A Hidden Shame in Nursing Homes

For decades, the law has sought to restrain nursing homes from trying to control the behavior of dementia patients with antipsychotic drugs, which are known to have adverse health effects.

We hear the story of David Blakeney, a dementia sufferer whose health declined rapidly after he was placed in a South Carolina nursing home.

Special Episode: What Does It Mean to 'Never Forget'?

Two planes hijacked by Al Qaeda pierced the north and south towers of the World Trade Center. A third slammed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Va. A fourth crashed in an open field outside Shanksville, Pa. All in less than 90 minutes.

What, exactly, do you remember? What stories do you tell when a casual conversation morphs into a therapy session? What stories do you keep to yourself? And what instantly transports you back to that deceptively sunny Tuesday morning?

In a study of more than 3,000 people, what distinguished the memories of Sept. 11, when compared with ordinary autobiographical memories, was the extreme confidence that people had developed in their altered remembrances.

Dan Barry, a longtime Times reporter, remembered ?the acrid smell of loss drifting uptown through the newsroom?s open windows. The landfill. The funerals.? Today, he shares an essay about the effects of time on those memories.

?We?re Going to Take Over the World?

On the internet, there are bizarre subcultures filled with conspiracy theorists ? those who believe the coronavirus is a hoax or that the 2020 election was stolen, or even that Hillary Clinton is a shape-shifting lizard.

?I?m Part of Something That?s Really Evil?

This episode contains strong language.

Terry Albury joined the F.B.I. just before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, drawn in by the bureau?s work fighting child exploitation. His role quickly changed after 9/11 however, and he subsequently spent over a decade working in counterterrorism.

Around 2015, he began to deeply question his work. ?This is not what I joined the F.B.I. to do,? he recalled thinking.

His doubts about the bureau?s workings led him to leak classified information to journalists. Today, we hear his story.

How Will the Taliban Rule This Time?

Since the Taliban took over Kabul, Afghanistan?s capital, last month, many have wondered what kind of rulers they will be.

This time around, what will their rule mean for ordinary Afghans?

How Texas Banned Almost All Abortions

In a way, the new Texas law that has effectively banned abortions after six weeks is typical ? many other Republican-led states have sought to ban abortions after six, 10 or 15 weeks. 

But where federal courts have routinely struck down other anti-abortion laws, the Texas legislation has gone into effect with the Supreme Court?s blessing. 

How has this law survived so far, and where does it leave abortion providers in the state?

New Orleans in the Aftermath of Hurricane Ida

After Hurricane Ida hit New Orleans, leaving destruction in its wake, comparisons with Hurricane Katrina were made.

There are, however, big differences between the two disasters ? namely that the city, in the 16 years since Katrina, has heavily invested in flood defenses. But on the ground, there is little cause for celebration.

What has happened in the aftermath of Ida and what does the increasing frequency of climate extremes mean for a city like New Orleans?

America?s Final Hours in Afghanistan

On Monday night, after a 20-year war that claimed 170,000 lives, cost over $2 trillion and did not defeat the Taliban, the United States completed its withdrawal from Afghanistan. 

As the last of the American forces left under the cover of darkness, there was celebratory gunfire from the Taliban. The moment of exit, a day earlier than expected, was both historic and anticlimactic.

We explore what happened in the last few hours and days of the American occupation, and look at what it leaves behind.

The Sunday Read: ?How Long Can We Live??

Jeanne Calment lived her entire life in the South of France. She filled her days with leisurely pursuits, enjoying a glass of port, a cigarette and some chocolate nearly every day. In 1997, Ms. Calment died. She was 122.

With medical and social advances mitigating diseases of old age and prolonging life, the number of exceptionally long-living people is increasing sharply. But no one is known to have matched, let alone surpassed, Ms. Calment?s record.

Longevity scientists hold a wide range of nuanced perspectives on the future of humanity. Some consider life span to be like a candle wick, burning for a limited time. While others view it as a supremely, maybe even infinitely elastic band.

As the eminent physicist Richard Feynman put it in a 1964 lecture, ?There is nothing in biology yet found that indicates the inevitability of death.?

The Bombings at the Kabul Airport

For days, many dreaded an attack on Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, as Western forces scrambled to evacuate tens of thousands of people from Afghanistan. On Thursday, those fears were realized ? amid the large crowds outside the airport, terrorists carried out two suicide bombings. The attacks killed at least 60 people, including 13 United States service members.

ISIS-K, a branch of the Islamic State in Afghanistan, has claimed responsibility.

Will these attacks be the effective end of the U.S. evacuation effort and where does this leave the Afghanistan mission?

Biden?s Border Dilemma

Early on in the Biden administration, it rolled out a two-pronged migration plan: A reversal of the most punitive elements of Donald Trump?s policy and rooting out the causes of migration from Central America, namely corruption.

We explore the calculus of the Biden administration?s migration policy.

Why Mexico Is Suing U.S. Gunmakers

For years, Mexico has been gripped by horrific violence as drug cartels battle each other and kill civilians. In the last 15 years alone, homicides have tripled. The violence, the Mexican government says, is fueled, in part, by American guns. 

Now Mexico is bringing a lawsuit against 10 gun manufacturers in a U.S. federal court, accusing them of knowingly facilitating the sale of guns to drug cartels in the country. 

How did the situation get to this point, and what arguments are being mounted by the Mexican government?

The Sunday Read: ?The Case of the Vanishing Jungle?

In 2002, a survey revealed there were just 1.6 Sumatran tigers per 100 square kilometers in Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park, one of the last habitats for the critically endangered animal. In the fall of 2015, however, research suggested that the numbers had significantly improved: 2.8 tigers per 100 square kilometers.

When Matt Leggett, a newly hired senior adviser for the Wildlife Conservation Society, looked at the data sets, satellite maps and spatial distribution grids, he couldn?t help noticing the forest. It seemed to be getting smaller.

Matt wondered: Were the people looking at the same maps he was? Was he crazy? He was not crazy.
