"Give their speech or whatever they would want to do in that in that location and so people quickly figured out when stott case happened that they should put a little brass thing at every entrance saying that we reserve the right to do various things and colluding to exclude people. And so this is. That kiss was discussed -vely in the decision yesterday and i really addressed the question about. When is it acceptable for a state to say that someone could come on your property so any other regulation that would allow access or require somebody to to come onto somebody else's property is something that would be even more suspect under this decision. Well you know. I think people listening to this say california and the wouldn't be surprised that california has some different rules than others. They might be surprised that it kind of gets realigned and the in gets you know after a period of time and appeals and everything else in years and years on this particular case that you know they're there ends up being more common law of the land which i guess is a supreme court job is i'm curious. Uc some related cases. That are coming down the pike that will further divine this or affect these kinds of issues that are making their way to the supreme court related to Restricting i maybe not just unions but something you see coming down that everybody should be keeping an eye on that could eventually get to the supreme court has implications for how food is produced and regulated in the country. Yeah i thought. I thought it was really interesting. That the approach taken by majority here was very strident in favor of the property right and used language like forcible access and sank government-sanctioned trespassing and the things that were you know pretty strong language so i think you do see a signal there towards the courts being more inclined to look very closely at anything that impugns the property owners interest and often in agriculture. We see those things in areas like everything from water rights to licensing requirements and similar things so if it does signal anything i think it's a a a doubling down. I guess on the strength of the property owners rights in interest kind of against state that would seek to regulate that emphasis in particular physically getting onto the farm. A lot of people have talked about the supreme gordon of that the the balance of the supreme court has been changing and have been looking for these various decisions and certainly this is one of the first probably not the last that have implications for agriculture..

"Which is really where i spend. My work is on the west coast. Well let's jump all the way up to the supreme court because what's been in the news and what kind of led me to touching base with you was that the supreme court has made a decision that has implications for. I don't wanna go any further than that. Other than the fact that involves trying to organize unions and farming operations. But if you would explain what. The decision was of the supreme court then we'll back all the way back to the farms. What the implications are of this. Yeah absolutely so I the case is named cedar point nursery versus the seed and it was issued yesterday by yesterday about the united states supreme court it dealt with an issue that somewhat unique to california farming operations in that there is a law that governs labor relations in that For those employers in those growers that allows labor unions the right to forcibly have access to the company's property the grower's farm it's in order to meet directly with workers and organize them so the case itself questioned whether that law california's law was constitutional under the federal constitution. The fifth amendment which we usually think of is pleading the fifth this is different and then also the fourteenth amendment Which applies the i ten to the states so the court ultimately held that it was unconstitutional. Now as i understand it National labor relations act. Maybe Covers the organization for non-agriculture allen. The world that ever happened. I mean why had there even been a double standard in the first place then mean of his right for one side. I don't understand why it isn't right for the for the other side. So so is it right that the In are in l. a. Prohibits this sort of thing can take place unless it's agriculture. Was that true. Yeah so briefly. The national labor relations act was started in one thousand nine hundred eighty five really as a way to create labor peace based on strikes that were occurring in at time. And at that time. If you think about what was agriculture and what kind of employees were working in how how many of them were working in agriculture. It was a very different world. The the interest groups in the like on all sides of that equation ultimately We're able to get an exemption for agriculture. And that was true not just for labor law but other things as well so there have been either. Agricultural exemptions or special rules have applied over the years to wage now our practices and a variety of other things where the legislatures recognized that that on farm agriculture was different in its nature than other kinds of employment. Well i understand that because it is different than other types of employment but oftentimes you think that that means they cut him a little slack and this is just the opposite mean in in this particular case it seems like it allowed the rights to be much more kind of invasive To to actually go onto the property and organiz were. They couldn't do that in a non-farm situation. Yeah that's that's right. I mean. I agree with the idea of cutting slack. The question is in favor of home right..

Is It Really Time to Get Rid of the Filibuster?

"Then there's also a couple of gun control bills at the House approved Perry. I'm wondering if this is doomed in the Senate, and then if that's indicative of other bills that are going to go to the Senate over the next couple of years and only to die because moderate Democrats kill them. What do you think? Yeah. I mean, we're the background checks. Bill was passing the Democrats in the last house on the defensive, because last time, too, in 2019 or 29, pretty sure and also move. Know where we're headed toward this big fight. And this week we saw what I think. Is the biggest illustration of it and where it's going to become most central, which is that you have, you know, you have basically three blocks of Democrats. You have sort of more the most sort of left where Democrats want to get rid of the filibuster and like and jetted Supremes Supreme Court and just to do a lot of really liberal things. By getting rid of the old duster. You have the Joe Mansions and the Kristen Cinemas. The senators who are putting on Opposed to giving the bill Buster, But you saw this week what I think is an emerging vision among Democrats, which J, which James Clyburn and Stacey Abrams both raised their two of the most prominent black figures in the party, which is that you shouldn't give her the filibuster for everything, but you really need to get rid of the filibuster so you can pass voting rights bills that protect particularly people of colors right to vote and the ability to vote, particularly in response to all these bills moving in states like Georgia, that would make it harder to Votes, and I think the filibuster fight is going toe feel about a lot of issues, but it's really going to be about these voting rights issues where you're going to see a lot of like black Democrats pressuring mansion and cinema, particularly and saying, you know, on some level, you may want the filibuster in theory, but you cannot prioritize the filibuster over black voting rights. That's where we're headed toward. Is gonna be this real fight in the next few months in the Democratic Party and buying so far is trying to say his staff's been saying his preference is to keep the filibuster. You know, people have lots of purpose is in life that they don't necessarily abide by and I think he's signaling maybe some open this to some changes on issue himself.

And i when we say that we were both very sad to hear about the fact that miss mary wilson passed away last week at the age of seventy six years old. Yes i was a little heartbroken. I texted you right away. And i was like. Oh so of course miss. Mary was a founding member of the iconic american singing group. The supremes she was there at the beginning of the group in the nineteen fifties and was the last original member in the group when it officially disbanded in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven and she went on to a career as a solo performer motivational speaker author and perhaps unsuspecting archivist. Yes because miss. Mary took it upon herself to preserve the supreme sartorial legacy and her collection of the group's stunning performance ensemble served as the foundation of her two thousand nineteen book co authored with mark. Bego supreme glamour and april. I mean we feel so. Honored chose celebrated fulling episode of dressed with miss mary herself. She came on last season of course to share with us her incredible stories behind the supremes singular style she truly was an inspiring and wonderful woman whose legacy will undoubtedly live on for generations to come. Thank you for joining us stress listeners. In this listen back at our time with the one. The only miss mary wilson. We are super excited to have miss. Mary wilson with us today miss mary. Welcome to dressed. Thank you so much. And i'm glad to be with you. Yeah of this is truly an honor to have you here today. And i have to say i have not been this excited about a book in a very long time. I've i've read a lot of fashion history books and this one is is so beautifully written. It's so beautifully illustrated so many stories so much love and friendship and of course there's so much fashion in this book. It's such a beautiful mosh to your time in the supremes and the clothing. That was part in parcel to that experience. So i'm curious. What inspired you to write this wonderful book. Wow well it was fairly easy. Because i had already written books about the supreme so therefore you know it was one of the things will. My research was not as it didn't take as long because i had so much research from the other books. And you know writing about the supremes and our biography and and talking about how much we had accomplished and our career was a pleasure to actually sit down now and do something not just write about the book but do show pictures and and and the looks and what was behind the singing which was more fashion so it was really a lot of fun. Sort of demonstrating what we did in not just on recording and the music but how we look at how he felt when we were certain count and so was all about the gallons per gallon down to just like we were onto all those years and many of them are in your personal collection cracked. Have i think in the book. There's over twenty four sets of matching onstage on sambas so not just one of the dresses but all three of the dresses. How did you go about comprising this collection. Well First of all we supreme florence ballard diana ross and i would always travel and when we came home from the road we'd have to store the gown and then of course by new gowns or designers with bring us new gowns and some of the old account that we made perhaps worn on television We went to store them. And they accumulated who Throughout all the years right And as you know florence was no longer mcgrew. Diane was no longer in the group. And then we had the seventies supremes And i became sort of like the keeper of of everything and the manager of the trains and all those different things. So i accumulated the gown because of that and whenever anyone would leave As you know a couple of them. Did i ended up with all these counts because no one can take the guy. No one can take the gal with them. You know we the supremes as a group paid for them. And that's how. I ended up with the majority of the gals. Now all other gallons should be in my possession but The reason that i can't tell you how many i have is because many have been not just lost and i won't say stolen you know things have just disappeared. And then some of the places we have them stored you know. I don't i couldn't figure out where everything was stored inside. All these years asked the supreme i have just been Trying to recover those downs that are not in my collection but it really is my collection. Because as i said when i left everything was left to me also should say that even though they were left to me and i had bare instead of three Sometimes i ended up with just one but all three gowns were overset were supposedly with me.

When did you realize you could sing? Well, I never realized I could say I thought everyone woke up in the morning singing. I was like Doris Day. Of course. I lived in the Brewster projects of black area. Where was that in Detroit. Detroit is everywhere. So I was born in Mississippi. Okay, I was I'm a Southern girl was one of Mississippi and my pants. You know that great migration of blacks from the south to the city for work or work. I was I was part of that. And so no one in my family saying, But I remember my my dad who? My aunt and uncle raised me and I remember that he had this huge collection of R and B music. And one day he would you know, he was playing this record, and I woke up that morning, and I thought I had written the song. I was only about eight at the time because you were hearing it in your hearing it right. And I'm not knowing anything about musicals. Me wasn't figured you wrote that when you woke up, you know, that was my story. Serious against what? I had a chance to tell Bill. Not Bill Williams. Uh, well, all right. Okay. Joe Williams.

But I thought I had written that song and I told Mr Joe Williams is years later and he just laughed. But you asked me no one else in my family. But there was music in the house because the records there's a 30, but But don't you think that that had a great influence on just the fact that you grew up in an environment where music is? How are you kidding? That was I grew up with it. And but I didn't know I could think you asked me that I had no idea I could just sing in church. No, I never sing in church because I went to Aretha Franklin's dance.

"I think that the one thing that is also worth mentioning along those same lines that you know. Obviously diana ross was the not only the faith of the supreme in regards but the voice. Because she's saying almost everything but you know. There were a couple of songs that mary wilson did lead vocals on and i was trying to go back. Grew identify as many of them. That could because she had such a beautiful voice. It was like I was trying to figure out describe it. It was like kinda smokey a little bit. Yeah just so impactful. It was a beautiful voice but it didn't necessarily fit well with a lot of the supreme material which was a lot of upbeat and uptempo kind of stuff but you can hear mary. Wilson lead vocals on baby. Don't go which is a great song that's often forgotten off there. I pee She sang lead vocals on stillwater. That our version of that song. She's doing lead vocals on. Come and get these memories. The supremes version Make them martha reeves dollars of course so she did get some legal opportunities but again she was always kind of in the shadows so then it's like okay. I don't think that there are many music heads. Who would say that. You know mary. wilson flow. Ballard cindy birdsong that the backing vocalists weren't as important to the supreme sound as diana. Ross just diana when you listen to those records so i think that you can look at like who could ever doubt my love for instance. The backing vocals are just. They're so simple. But ethically beautiful. And i think that we are. It's easy to brush folks off as backup singers or you know those other girls in the group but mary. Wilson was an integral part of the supremes. An integral part of the motown sound amazon. A motown ambassador. I mean she cherry on that legacy better than arguably even berry gordy. Has you know always dropping whatever she was doing to try to help. Preserve the story and detroit's musical history. And i also should mention that she was integral part of the rb hall of fame often coming back to detroit to do the induction ceremonies and served as an mc mean. Her heart was in detroit and her heart was in music. Not just motown. But she wanted to honor and help celebrate all of those who are making music and keeping people's feet dancing for you know decades and decades. Yeah one of my favorites of hers is can't take my eyes off of you. If she has a beautiful version of that really calls to me. If you study the motown sound least for me. It's that idea that the sound works because of such an impact of the background of what would normally be the back singers as well as the band. The motown sound that was of course exemplified in documentaries like standing in the shadows of motown where it felt. Amazing even though it wasn't the original singers. Yeah i think that the motown sound is it's never the component of just robinson or just levi stubbs. I mean it really is the some of the polls greater than the individual parts. And i think that mary wilson and flow. Ballard cindy birdsong a little bit later on. They were tested to that. And i think that you can go through and listen to those the way that they harmonize diana ross non an easy voice to harmonize with a beautiful one but very high and.

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Sasha Pfeiffer, and I'm Rachel Martin. Over the past few weeks, the world watched as individual Wall Street investors rush to buy shares in the struggling video game retail chain game stop. It was sold as a chance to punish Wall Street elites, especially those who bet that companies will fail. This is called shorting game stops, share values, climb to dizzying heights and then fell again. Virtually all of those market games evaporated. Washington Post personal finance columnist Michelle Singletary talked about that with Noel King. So a lot of newer investors. Younger investors are fascinated by the story of game stops stock, and it has led some of them to get involved to put their money into the market for the first time. That on its face is not necessarily a bad thing. Young people investing, but you have some concerns. What are those? You know, I'm not a big fan of using investing like a game, and what's happening with gang stock is really speculation. It's not the tried and true way that the average person who's like saving for retirement, for example, creates wealth for themselves. They do it slow and steady over decades really, and with diversification often do mutual funds low index mutual funds, and so I know that's not a sexy or exciting story for the Children or young adults, But the reality of it is that that's how they should be investing. The mistakes that small investors are making when they jump into the market and scoop up a hot stock or get involved with something like game stop. What are the pitfalls that you see? So the analogy that I use that I think that they will identify with this. It's like when you go to Los fates, you know, it's fun to be in the casino. And there are people who are winning. You hear the bells go off in the slot machines and like, Yeah, that could be me. But that's not investors. Not like a casino. Sure, they're gonna be winners. Sure you're going to read the news stories about someone who invested in getting stock and paid off the student loan debt. But for every one of that person, there's so many more who are gonna lose money. They're gonna invest money that they can't afford to lose. And they're gonna walk away, not the better. For your recent column. You spoke to an expert who made what would appear to be a very boring suggestion. But she claims it is not. Christine Benz says Buy some shares in a low cost S and P 500 Index fund. And you the buyer will see that you are a part owner of what So you're part of Apple, Netflix Tesler, all the major companies that you're very familiar with the exciting ones. You know, Amazon. The problem is that when you buy a mutual fund, you don't see the guts of it. You know, it's like you putting together stew and you've got all the tomatoes and carrots and all that kind of stuff you're eating is great. But like what's in this, though, But when you look at the pot and you see it all you like, Oh, yeah, this carrots in there does be Even there. That's what an index fund is. When I'm talking about the stock market and investing in and having money for your future. I don't look at what the news is hyping. That's like the casino. Why, When you hit it in a slot machine, does the bell go off? Why would I want to let someone else know that I've made money? Because they want a thing. They want other people to think they can win, too. But we all know that the House always wins. But the regular people who are not in the casinos, who are maybe just walking on the strip and and enjoying the Yunos Las Vegas well to gambling, they're investing in what people consider boring but boring can make you a millionaire. Michelle Singletary. Personal finance column for the Washington Post. Thank you so much for being with us. This was great. Yes. So welcome. Mary Wilson of the Supremes has died.

She was 76. Do you think? C C. C. C again, you do sound there will be to get He'll find a way from me. Just says shit. This'd is NPR news.

And the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation supporting those working towards a day when no one has to choose between paying rent, putting food on the table and protecting their house and the health of others are W J f dot or G'kar. It's morning edition Known W N Y C. I'm David. First New York City is expensive and housing costs are a big reason why many New Yorkers are out of work right now and struggling to pay their rent or mortgage. Homelessness is chronic and the public housing authority needs an overhaul. All these housing issues are connected and will land on the desk of a new mayor in less than a year. W NY sees Elizabeth Kim joins us now by Skype with a look at where the candidates running for mayor stand on housing. Good morning. Good morning. Is Mayor de Blasio was on pace to create more affordable units than any other mayor in the history of the city. But New York is still in an affordable housing crisis. What's going on? When he first got into office, Mayor De Blasio set an ambitious, affordable housing agenda. He really wanted to make this part of his legacy, and to date he's built or preserved around 160,000. 167,000 units. Now that's a huge number. It puts him on par with Mayor Ed Koch, who has one of the best affordable housing records, But critics of pointed out that It's not enough of these units went to the poorest New Yorkers. A recent study found that 72% of low income New Yorkers under de Blasio have been rent burden, which means that they're paying more than 30% of their income on rent. That's the group that housing experts say the mayor needed to target and I imagine that burden has only gotten worse in the past year. How are mayoral candidates responding All of leading candidates have strongly criticized Blasio's housing policy. I spoke to Brooklyn Borough president Eric Adams, who had this to say. Because we have to be ready. Help. Those who are fast food employees, as well as the teacher and the accounting that's married. And so that is a real question of the volume of what was created. Is not matching of the needs that on the ground. And I'd say that that's been one of the dominant messages of all the campaigns. They've made a point that they would make sure to build housing for more lower income New Yorkers. So it's not enough to say that you've built a lot of affordable units when they really are affordable for the people who need them. The most. They're also paying attention to another criticism of de Blasio, which is that he treated the poor living conditions at night Sha and the homelessness crisis as separate policy issues. So now you often hear the candidates talk about homelessness as essentially part of the housing crisis. Know all we hear a lot of things talked about, but solving the affordable housing crisis is easier said than done, right. Right. This is something that stymied or tested. A lot of mayors. The conventional wisdom in urban planning is that New York City needs to grow by allowing more housing in neighborhoods that have good transit. Here's what Alicia Glen, the former deputy mayor of housing under De Blasio told me First. Well, it is a numbers game because we're the city of New York with 8.4 million people in Allegra, Alex, and we already have a housing crisis. So anybody who says isn't a numbers game? Essentially saying they're either anti growth or they don't care and that today is absurd. The problem, though, is that rezoning neighborhoods toe act and city is often politically treacherous. De Blasio sought to do 15 major rezoning. He's done only six. So far. Part of the resistance is from critics who say his rezoning is coming at the expense of poor black and brown neighborhoods. The mayor was also accused of relying too much on private developers to generate new housing. Well, the real estate industry is so powerful in the city how how has the conversation changed in the last four years around Private developers. The real estate industry has become increasingly toxic for politicians Keep in mind. We're also on the heels of the Black Lives matter movement, which means that people are paying more attention to race an economic justice. So that's why the more progressive candidates are rejecting developer lead rezoning is as a solution. Instead, we've heard a lot of the candidates talk about using vacant city land, converting hotel in office space and working closely with the Biden administration to get more assistance from Washington. But none of those will really be enough to answer the huge demand. Okay. Well, is that looking ahead? What are you waiting to hear from the candidates on housing? Many of the top candidates Scott Springer, My wily Andrew Yang and Ray Maguire haven't released detailed housing plans yet, so the proof will really be in the pudding. Will they have real policies that are both politically and financially viable? You know, in a primary, it can be really hard to know whether the candidates are simply appealing to a more left leaning base. Those are the folks who come out to vote in June. But if you talk to experts, the city has to grow to help with its financial recovery, so the next mayor needs to be.

From Mississippi to ST Louis and then Chicago and finally landed in Detroit, where she had a knot in uncle who she lived with for a number of years, and she grew up in the Brewster Douglas projects in Detroit. Which became the place where so many Motown artists came out of. So he landed in this kind of hotbed of musical creativity that was happening in Detroit with people like Very Gordy, who established Motown and his family and Smokey Robinson and, of course, And Ross and silence Ballard of the Supremes.

Cherry apart and different things you do. If does kind of a fair relationship within the grew. But as I said, it's like a family you know everybody have cousins and uncle and all that stuff that you know alkyl Brady Know Oh my God you know lose lose. People in your family that are the way they are anything with groups. It's the same things. You know. Family Ben that have different opinions I guess you could say was that though part of flows issues though. That was like after the fact I, say this because of what's going on with the metoo movement of that nature flowing a She was abused when she was fourteen years old and that really disrupted her in terms of her life. I mean ensured SORTA destroy her and if you talk to anyone who has had that happened to them. So, even though we became famous and I know I have maybe Diane built as laws we're going to get over author hurt and pain fame visit we make money whichever though he's great things but if it's not taken care of inside people still snow it just It really destroys your inside and so when we started having our issues. On the road and traveling and record a elite here, they'll those type everything I would say probably bother flow. She took it to her so she was never able to deal with certain things there for his I dealt with that. Still I, mean I wasn't happy about everything you know but I was able to deal with because they have critical up waving and commonsense was stopping. Our family always taught us. You know. So I was I was more level in terms of dealing with whatever life story at us at all of us even Diane I mean I'm sure it was not easy for her you know being apart from us so. She came from a really wonderful family. Good of rain. had other things issues and they've bothered her so she was was not able to cope with everything. Now I'm very happy about this me too where women are coming out boys coming out people coming out and saying this happened to me when was young and you know. I was not able to say anything and no one ever helped me kind of well, it was close. Because she never was able to get treatment for it or talk to anybody about. Lawyers WHO In the private. To coach through you know if. You know if you got someone that was good but getting the professional, that was naive or something that was considered in fact, hit those things thrown everywhere they couldn't talk about it. So you know it was very difficult for flow because of that and no one else and Montana even knew about it. You know. So late in the situation because she just being you know we're hard to deal with because she. Was Wrong and she was telling you know get around as she was that kind of girl. Review. No. She would often have deal come back like that. You string me as someone who's very patient and kind of a peacekeeper. That's that's good. To be. been outspoken and I guess because I was brought up at an only child. I was alone a lot because my uncle, my mom and dad. They worse I was alone a lot and I was you know I was just accustomed to being really enthralled with Bacon things on my own and and then when my mom she too was a kind of a very peaceful I am so learned from her you know about kindness and not job going. Going off you're you're you're you know Is that when you go crazy. So. I learned how to be and then with the mcgrew flowing Dan, they were too strong individuals to be the middle. are sort of like kind of balancing everything off but. I actually. Fighter. But I'm. Peaceful fighter. Let's put it that way. I've been to a live in my life but I know how to deal look for the silver lining in everything I don't have a smile all the time I'm always happy I mean. For people I know, but I have two people. So one part of me is very quiet is the other part is the fires I if I can find on the privates, you know what I mean. But it takes a lot to get there but I'm I'm. Hoping that I can kind of of you know whatever you say, how do what I? Say you wait till my time I I'll take care. When we go into into the ground, I remember saying her. Your children left out me there and I and just GonNa Take Yoga. So I. You know that's one of the things that I'm doing with this us down for her I really want to get that stamp I feel that she deserved it supremes I mean we didn't give John Lennon and some people like while another country US downs I think that you know here in America they get one brings.

Benjamin Moser: Sontag: Her Life and Work

"A biography of Susan's son tag her life and work which has been A controversial book as if a biography could be controversial but nevertheless this is the way it seems. Now do you think of the controversy that seems to have surrounded this book? Well I think a book about Susan Sontag. That wasn't controversial. Would NOT BE A book about Susan? Contact? I think she's somebody who elicited very heavy very visceral and sometimes violent opinions all through her life and I don't really see controversial this book. I see it more as just I hope something. Starting a conversation about an author that I think is more essential than ever man. Santiago was always associated with fashion. She was associated with With photography she was associated with being on the cover of Vanity Fair and the only possible American intellectual who have been on the cover of Vanity Fair. I think the real writers we actually care about are the ones who go on after their deaths. And who have these chances to be reevaluated? I can remember the first time I read. Susan Sonntags First Book. Which was against interpretation? Can you remember the first time you read against interpretation? Yes yeah I can't because I actually hadn't read it until I started working on this book really. I know I had read the photography stuff mainly and then I had read essays from against interpretation. I think I hadn't read the whole book. I'd read notes on camp. I'd read the title essay. Read some of the film essays but what was really exciting about going back to read. It now is that you see a world you see this time which is quite again. It feels contemporary. But it's almost sixty years old against interpretation but you get this whole Panorama of culture and of ideas. That feels very exciting to me. I have to tell you it was the first of her books that I read. I was astonished by it because of the enormity of range of what she's read I mean just when she makes a list of the books that she thinks of you think Oh i. you'd already read that in the early sixties. She was only in her early thirties to show thirty when that book came out before it became fashionable to event. Artaud Susan cared about our Dole. And in fact you know. She seems to know that the time she's living in as opposed to the time she died in was a time when people new things. I- slivered out some quotes from Susan. Let's hear Susan people want to be moved? Is a writer. Want to move people. I was very moved cried. Even a couple of passages that that I was riding this one line that made me laugh. Grimly where I WANNA say I say but I don't feel it's me I feel. It's the book says It it was a time when knowledge was fashionable. Philistinism was unfashionable. And I wrote that line with a great deal of Glee and grimness because the time we live in as a time in which knowledge is unfashionable and Philistine as it was very fashionable. I'm talking to Benjamin Moser. Sonntags biographer. That what you just heard was the very first time I sat face to face was. Susan was from our first conversation and you consider deeply the subject of knowledge and Philistinism and Susan's almost desire to attack the Philistines. Can you talk to me though? I think it's really funny. I think it's one of the great American questions. I think we're living in a time when Philistinism seems triumphant We don't have to name names. But I think we all know who I'm talking about and I think that there's a kind of feeling that we're always being engulfed by the gold escalator and that all the things that in her lifetime worse symbolic of middle-brow Ism whether it was life magazine in the book of the month club or elevator music. All these kind of things. Santi always stood for the opposite of all that crap. Now you you seem to think she becomes as she lives longer and longer harder and harder on the people around her. Tell me what you mean. Tell me what that use a lot of. It might have had to do with the fact that she was physically. Ill a lot of her life when she was forty two. She got stage four breast cancer and almost killed her and she was subjected to this. Very gruesome and horrifying treatment did end up saving her life. And that's in nineteen seventy five to seventy eight. So she's in her mid forties by then and it seemed to me that something did change in her where she got more impatient. She got more Intolerant of certain people. But I think that it's something that's interesting to try to understand what happens but then not dwell on it too much because what I'm really interested in Santiago and what I think makes her relevant is her writing and her ideas. I think that what we're talking about is the person who wrote in the introduction to against interpretation that we need an erotics of art not a Herman Excite Lard and she writes about her fondness for the supremes. Which at that time you take someone go take number of someone's whether it's Irving Howe or saul bellow listening to the supremes. They find it to be quite a surprise that a highly thought of intellectual is talking about the supremes by the end of her life. She's not talking about the supreme sending more and she's not talking about neurotic sue criticism. No well I think it's very important again to think about how old a lot of this is. This is again. It's almost. It's more than fifty years ago in that time in that me. That was really shocking. And it's absolutely hilarious to see the reactions that she got 'cause the thing about the supreme.

You Point Down Very well and intelligently and correctly in this book that cultural conservatism is has very little to do with political conservatism.

Supreme Court streams live oral arguments for first time

"But the believe it or not your Supreme Court is in action and this action by the way with the oral arguments by means of telephone believe it or not which means that for the first time ever we're going to actually be hearing the oral arguments live as they happen and who knows the time could come when the very possibly the Supremes may figure out that microphones in federal courts don't mean the end of justice and that might consider entering the twentieth century even though it's been gone now for twenty

Supreme Glamour, an Interview with Mary Wilson

"I'm curious. What inspired you to write this wonderful book. Wow well it was fairly easy because I had already written books about the Supreme Court so therefore you know it was one of the things. My research was not is. It didn't take as long because I have so much research from the other books. And you know writing about the supremes are by argosy and and talking about how much we had accomplished and our career. It was a pleasure to actually sit down and do something not just write about the book but to show pictures and and and the looks and what was behind the singing which was more fashion so it was really a lot of fun sort of demonstrating what we did in not just from recording and the music but how we looked at how we felt when we wore certain gown and all about the gals the gals onto another. Just like we were on to all those years and many of them are in your personal collection cracked. You have I think in the book. There's over twenty four sets of matching onstage ensembles so not just one of the dresses but all three of the dresses. And how did you go about comprising this collection? Well first of all we the Supreme Florence Ballard Donald Ross and I would always travel and when we came home from the road. We'd have to store the gallons and then of course by gowns or designers bring those new county and some of the older gallons that we make perhaps worn on television We would just store them. And they accumulated through throughout all the years right And AS Roma's is no longer in the groove Diane was no longer in the group. And then we had the seventies supremes And I became sort of like the keeper of of everything and the manager of the supremes and all those different things So I yeah. I accumulated the gowns. Because of that and whenever anyone would leave As you know a couple of them did I would end up with all these coun- because no one could take the guy no one can take the gals within the frame as a group Pays for them. And that's how I ended up with the majority of the GALS. Now all of the gals should be in my possession but The reason that I can't tell you how many I have is so many have been not just lost and I won't say stolen. You know things have just disappeared. And then some of the places we had them stored you know. I don't I couldn't figure out where everything was stored inside all these years after the supremes. I have just been trying to recover those downs. That are you know not in my collection but it really is my collection as I said when Florence Diane left everything was left to me. Also just say that even though they were left to me and I had there instead of three sometimes I ended up with just one but all three gallons were upset. Were supposedly with me. And you're still like you said you're actively tracking are able to track some of these pieces down I saw A. I'm not sure what the name of the TV show is. But it was on BBC where this woman found one of your costumes in a garage sale or something of that Lake in London. Well being about it is we've bogged down that Some of the fans have called emailed me. Mira guess what we have we we think a couple of you guys on on Ebay and really so we were trying to get together and email each other and I look at that so a couple of fans actually bought off Ebay and got them for me The ones that you're speaking of in London. The young lady was traveling in I think it was France. And she sold this Sale like a garage. We call them garage sale here there. I think the boot sales or something like that. And so she saw this beautiful gown and She went and she bought it. She didn't realize it was a supreme count so after she bought and she saw the label. It had my name on it. That's when she realized. Wow you know this is. This is This is kind of fantastic and somehow another BBC or someone got in touch with me and told me about the story so we we established my coming over to when I was coming over to England to actually The book was coming out at the time we set up a meeting and we I met her. She came to the state we spoke and she gave me the Gallon Bat. That was really. It was wonderful and it was one of our gals that we were on the Tennessee Williams special However with the stage part about that is that it was only half of the cow because the Gal was a two piece count and had a leotard like a like a bathing suit type top and then it had a skirt that came off and then was a hat to it as well so I don't know where the skirt and the hat is looking for that. Maybe that's surely will show up in the future right and you know there's another set that Really badly outfitting up in the book. I'm not sure what pages on here is a A picture of the pants that when it was food that had a coat a jacket and the pants and it was completely beaded in bugle. Beads and there were three different colors one color with gold. I think Diane's with gold and Cindy in mind were orange and it was all beaded well. The jacket disappeared and disappeared from the designer hacking panels studio so I that that when this and that so I have the pants that but I don't have a jacket so jack ass floating around someplace and it's amazing a lot of times. They ended up being in a exhibit. And so we you know. We know where certain things are. We can't find out who gave them. Yeah so but but the orange jackets have never shown up lose. Maybe someone listening tell you that was not being. I know it was in San Francisco that they

'Sontag: Her Life and Work' by Benjamin Moser

"Today I'm very pleased to have as my guest the very brilliant Benjamin Moser who is the author of two biographies of Women Writers The I was a biography of Cou- reese the specter which did a good deal of bringing the Specter a writer who spent a good majority of for life in Brazil to the attention of American readers and the second is the biography of Susan's son tag her life and work which has been a controversial book as if a biography could be controversial but nevertheless this is the way it seems now what do you think of the controversy that seems to have surrounded this book well I think a book about Susan Santa that wasn't controversial would not be a book about Susan's contact I think she's somebody who elicited very heavy very visceral and sometimes violent opinions all through her life and I don't really see this controversial this book I see it more as just I hope it's something starting a conversation about an author that I think is more essential than ever Monsanto was always associated with fashion she was associated with with photography associated with being on the cover of Vanity Fair and the only possible American intellectual who could have been on the cover of Vanity Fair I think the real writers that we actually care about are the ones who go on after their deaths and who have these chances to be reevaluated I can remember the first time I read Susan Sonntags First Book which was against interpret Tation can you remember the first time he read against interpretation yes I can't because I actually hadn't read it until I started working on this book really I know I had read the Auger fi stuff mainly and then I had read essays from against interpretation I think I hadn't read the whole book I'd read notes on Camp I'd read the title essay I'd read some of the film essays but what was really exciting about going back to read it now is that you see a world you see this time which is quite again it feels contemporary but it's all most sixty years old you know against interpretation but you get this whole Panorama of culture and ideas that feels very adding to me I have to tell you it was the first of her books that I read I was astonished by it because Some of the enormity of range of what she's read I mean just when she makes a list of the books that she thinks of you think Oh my you'd already read that in the early sixties choose only in her early thirties to thirty when that book came out before it became fashionable to avert Arto Susan cared about our toll and in fact you know she seems to no that the time she's living in as opposed to the time she died in was a time when p do new things I- slivered out some quotes from Susan let's hear Susan people want to be moved on is a writer want to move people I was very moved cried even a couple of passes that I was riding this one line that made me laugh grimly where I wanna say I say but I don't feel it's me the book says it was a time when knowledge was fashionable Philistinism was unfashionable and I wrote that line with a great deal of Glee and grimness has a time we live in as a time in which knowledge is unfashionable Philipson as it was very fashionable I'm talking to Benjamin Moser son tags biographer that what you just heard was the very first time I sat face to face with Susan from our first conversation and You considered deeply the subject of knowledge and Philistinism and Susan's almost desire to attack the Philistines can you talk to me that I think it's really funny I think it's one of the great American questions I think we're living in a time when Philistinism seems triumphant we don't have to name names but I think we all know who I'm talking about and I think that there's a kind of feeling that we're always being engulfed by the gold escalator and the the all the things in her lifetime worse symbolic of Middle Brow Ism whether it was life magazine in the book of the month club or elevator music all these kind of things Santiago always stood for the opposite of all that crap now you seem to think she becomes as she lives longer and longer harder and harder on the people around her tell me what you mean tell me what that means a lot of it might have had to do the fact that she was physically ill a lot of her life when she was forty two she got stage four breast cancer and it almost killed her and she was subjected to this very gruesome horrifying treatment that did end up saving her life and that's nineteen in seventy five to seventy eight so she's in her mid forties by then and it seemed to me that something did change in her where she got more impatient she got more intolerant of certain people but I think that it's something that's interesting to try to understand what happens but then AH dwell on it too much because what I'm really interested in in Santiago and what I think makes her relevant is her writing and her ideas I think that what we're talking about is a person who wrote in the introduction to against interpretation that we need an erotics of art not a her renewed ix of art and she writes about her fondness for the supremes which at that time you take some on won't take any number of someone's whether it's Irving Hauer Saul bellow they're not listening to the supremes they find it be quite a surprise that a highly thought of intellectual is talking about the supremes by the end of her life she's not talking about the supreme sending more and she's not talking about neurotic criticism no well I think it's very important again to think about how old a lot of this is this is again it's almost it's more than fifty years ago in that time and in that year that was really shocking and it's absolutely really hilarious to see the reactions that she got because the thing about the supreme it's not like she wrote about this frame she said something about how she likes the supremes in one line nobody it followed her the whole life but you point down very well and intelligently and correctly in this book the Cultural Conservatives awesome is has very little to do with political conservatism. Well this is another idea that I think has been forgotten sondheim comes out of a world where out of me education where what she means a small C. conservatism is starting off with Plato and Aristotle and going up to Dante and Shakespeare through the great modern poets and that love that syllabus that Canon that became extremely unfashionable and now I think we're in a world where people aren't reacting against Beethoven you know they don't even know who Beethoven is Dante Shakespeare and so both the people who wanted to modernize that and expand it for example to feminist African American authors those people lost out just as much as the people who wanted it closed for political reasons from the right wing and what happens in that song tag is very perceptive about time and time again it said it all lose out to money it always is out to consumerism and so what happens is you know famous a great painting becomes an expensive painting a great song becomes a song that gets a lot of play on the radio a lot of clicks on the Internet and that's the thing we're in now come talking once again to Benjamin Moser Susan Sonntags biographer in a book from Echo called Sawa tag do you think that you're writing a biography of Susan or in addition a biography of her times well I think both the book is called Sante her life and work and those are two things that are complementary but I'd really there's a lot I'd like people to remember that people don't remember people don't member for example that it was quite common for women to write their husbands books as happened to attack yes fascinated yeah I had no idea will I didn't either I've inhabited this world of the great female intellectuals having done Clarissa Specter before and then Sante it's a world that generation of my grandparents grandmother's generation that I'm familiar with and so about three months ago this piece came out in the Guardian announcing that I had discovered that Sante had actually written the book upon which her husband's career was based book called for the mind with moralist and this piece went viral everybody was talking wrote me and they said are you kidding this happen to everybody nobody wire people so surprised and the reason they're surprise is that I think feminism has made so many gains is that people have forgotten what it was like so when you're talking about a history of her life and times when she applied she's got Souza's very brilliant student and she comes into the World king world and she applies for a job at a magazine and her friend a male friend says well the fact that you're a woman is a real problem but we're going to try to help them get over that and that was a totally normal thing to say to a woman at that time now you would get sued and you know rightly so a lot of the ideas that we think are able in in our culture whether you think about the position of African Americans do you think about the position of women are homosexuals or all these things they've changed really radically and one of the things I think a book like the biographies and Sonic can do is trace the evolution of these ideas so that's the part that I find fascinating because sometimes she's ahead of things and somehow she's behind wind and sometimes she's struggling to understand new ideas as they come into the world it's a fascinating

The cross went up a long time ago to pay homage to the debt of World War, One man across has been standing excuse me for nearly a century and the Supremes in a seven two ruling can't remember it was really lopsided said that this cross is not the imposing state religion, and it will stand and the this, call will reverse a ruling by the fourth circuit court of appeal that ruled the cross.
