Passivity is a theme that has been dealt with much of late. Sumner Locke Elliot's brilliant novel, "Going," describes a Nixon-like United States where nobody acts until it's too late, and they're all dead. Erica Jong explored that emotional disease in women whose pathology is not only similar to cancer's but whose morbidity is greater. Passivity may kill more slowly, but it is more efficient; it kills a whole lot more people in the end. Judith Rossner gives passivity an added dimension of horror. She anatomizes its growth, step by chilling step, showing how it can be as effective a means of suicide as poison or a gun.

In November 2021, Mr. Goodbar's GPS collar located him along the U.S.-Mexico border wall in Southern New Mexico, where he paced for 23 miles. He eventually turned back north. Sometime in January, he was shot in New Mexico. After his right hind leg was amputated at the ABQ BioPark Zoo in Albuquerque, he was again released into the wild.

At the heart of the debate are thousands of acres of public lands in Arizona and New Mexico, including in the Gila National Forest, where the Forest Service allows livestock grazing. These same areas are prime wolf territory.

I knew it was time to leave New York when I was paying as much for a monthly parking space in brownstone Brooklyn as I did for my first apartment, on a strip of Williamsburg where, 15 years ago, old Poles still glowered from storefronts and the hipsters skipping down Bedford Avenue were proud to live in a neighborhood whose primary financial institution was a sclerotic ATM at a corner store. Today, Williamsburg is about as culturally transgressive as the Mall of America. I leave with no bitterness, but it is time to go.

All history, in the end, is just a romance with bygone time. My own romance was with a time and place more frequently scorned than loved: the city of riots, strikes and blackouts, of dusky bars where Roseann Quinn spent her evening hours, some nights craving solitude, other nights craving company. The city back then, as I saw it, was more dangerous and more compelling. It was Gotham fallen, brooding and bruised, a city for Roseann Quinn, not Carrie Bradshaw. If you could make it there, why would you want to make it anywhere else?

Unable to travel back in time, I resorted to more mundane means. I happened to then be working at a large cultural institution uptown, where one of my colleagues was a woman in her late 30s. We both looked with condescension at our colleagues, most of whom very much wanted to ape the lifestyle of Friends, Sex and the City or Seinfeld, if not some lavish combination of all three. So it was only natural that we spent an increasing amount of time together: Nothing unites people like shared enmity.

She had come to New York in the grimy mid-'80s, just as crack was invading Harlem and AIDS was invading Chelsea, while a resurgent Wall Street seduced young men for whom Gordon Gekko would become an unironic ideal. She would take me on long walks through Manhattan and point to where the legendary clubs had once stood: Here was Limelight; there was Danceteria. Now, it was all a CVS. Her life, in that New York of broken windows before Broken Windows, seemed infinitely richer than my own, in Mayor Bloomberg's global metropolis, where smoking had, preposterously, just been outlawed in places where we could keep guzzling alcohol and tearing at chunks of red meat.

Speaking of bars, we often ended up at a pub called the All State Café. It was an oddly ecumenical name for a basement watering hole on 72nd Street, on a strip where there had once been many "singles bars." These were mostly gone, replaced by establishments for those who had shed their solitude for familial arrangements. Down the block was a kosher barbecue restaurant that catered to the neighborhood's large population of faithful Jews, who had arrived as the Upper West Side returned to prosperity in the late 1990s. It wasn't a very good restaurant, but it was always very full. Such are the vagaries, I guess, of barbecue for the Orthodox.

The All State was the kind of place where the music was quiet and the voices low, almost reverentially so. The place was tidy, but not gleaming in the fashion of today's bars, which seem to eternally await a health inspector's arrival. My co-worker said Kevin Bacon had once tended bar there, which seemed plausible but not all that impressive. Then she told me Looking for Mr. Goodbar, the book and film about a woman murdered during a one-night stand, was based on a fatal encounter that took place within these confines of dark wood stained with grease and cigarette smoke (the place had been called W.M. Tweeds at the time). This was infinitely more intriguing.

Not that the fictionalized Quinn whom Rossner depicts in Goodbar is an aimless romantic, wandering Greenwich Village in search of Joe Gould, writing poetry in a cold-water flat. She's not far enough removed from the old sod for that kind of blissful impracticality. She goes to City College, where she has an affair with an English professor who seems to treat his charges with undiluted contempt. His intensity attracts her: "His eyes bored a hole in her and the hole was her whole self." Putting aside the ontological problem of "the hole was her whole self," you get a pretty good idea of Rossner's hard-boiled prose. If not, here's another shot, from a later tryst: "She came, understood that was what had happened to her but not what was important about it." This isn't great writing, but it is great style, Hemingway filtered through second-wave feminism and hyperintellectual Jewish New York straining to get out of its own head.

If anything, Rossner is too hard-boiled, too willing to open the curtains of Quinn's studio, letting her readers watch her procession of sexual escapades. While Fosburgh's nonfiction account gives proper due to Quinn's teaching career at St. Joseph's School for the Deaf and elsewhere, Rossner spends far more time in bed than before the blackboard. She describes a sex life that is rich and then, suddenly, a little too rich for our bourgeois sensibilities. Her Quinn begins to frequent the city's bar scene, apparently using sex to fill some vague inner lack. "She's in here plenty," one bar denizen says of her. "She fucks anything in pants." Later, she begins to date a lawyer named James, but he is too timid for her. "I've slept with men I hardly knew," she says to him, taunting. Rossner, ever the goading devil, has her think: "If you could give me a good beating when I acted like that, I would like you better for it. I might even be able to enjoy the sex." Well, at least she knows what she likes.

Goodbar is where the fictionalized Quinn meets Gary Cooper White, Rossner's name for the real killer, John Wayne Wilson. White is a drifter of indeterminate sexual tastes and obvious mental instability. She takes him back to her place anyway, so hungry is she for the rough stuff. In her squalid apartment, they copulate as gracefully as teens on prom night drunk on Franzia and pheromones. She doesn't think he is very good at it, though, and kicks him out. Enraged, White stabs her to death.

Quinn's body, which Wilson desecrated with 18 knife wounds, was found by the superintendent of her building, where a fellow teacher from St. Joseph's went after she failed to show up for her classes. It took several days for the New York Police Department to announce the discovery of Quinn's body, but once the news hit, it stuck. "Teacher Found Nude and Slain," blares the wood (the front page headline, in tabloidese) of the Daily News on January 5, 1973, showing both her squalid apartment and a headshot of Quinn, in sunglasses, smiling. "Young Teacher Slain in West Side Flat," says a headline inside the paper. "She Heard Pleas of the Deaf," declares another, about her teaching career.

The Bronx is the only one of the five boroughs attached to the American mainland, and that has somehow made it an outcast in this city of islands. The borough is always on the cusp of resurgence, a favorite trope of the city's journalistic corps. And yet the former estate of Jonas Bronck (hence the name) has not, in the popular imagination, entirely recovered from that night in 1977 when, in the midst of a Yankees game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series, Howard Cosell famously declared, "There it is, ladies and gentlemen. The Bronx is burning." By the end of the decade, arson and poverty and drugs had reduced the Bronx to a pile of rubble that served as shorthand for all the ills of urban life. It has recovered, though perhaps not fully, and not everywhere. It will take more than a couple of loft conversions to undo the damage of generations.

The building is institutional Victorian, imposing and self-important, suggesting asylum more than school. There is religious imagery everywhere, but piety doesn't come easy under an expressway. At the front desk, the secretary was willing to let me look around, disconcertingly incurious about my unannounced appearance. I was searching for a memorial to Roseann, for some marker of her having passed through these doors. But there was nothing, or at least nothing visible. She was forgotten here, where she deserved most to be remembered.

It has been used dozens of times to bypass laws such as the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Air Act and the National Environmental Policy Act in a quest for rapid border wall construction. Defenders is supporting congressional efforts to prevent this authority from being used to expedite current and future border wall construction. One such effort is H.R. 4848, a bill sponsored by Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.), which would permanently repeal the waiver authority in the REAL ID Act. The executive branch should not have unilateral authority to strip away laws protecting entire communities and ecosystems anywhere in the U.S. 041b061a72
