How Hillary Clinton Grappled With Bill Clinton's Infidelity, and His Accusers The New York Times
There are no bombshells in this article, which lives up to its calm title. Still, it's an orderly, factual, balanced recounting of Bill Clinton's affairs and how Hillary responded generally and about the women like Gennifer Flowers. Megan Twohey includes extensive quotes from Clinton insiders like James Carville who say that while Hillary supported efforts to discredit the women -- or at least add context to the idea that in many cases the women had multiple lovers and affairs -- she never directed any takedown of the women, as Trump surrogates suggest.
There are minor references to the degree to which Hillary felt that she didn't meet Bill's needs, which she attributed to his childhood traumas. ~ Anne

Is Harlem the Next Chelsea for Art World?
Is Harlem New York City's Next Art Enclave? The Wall Street Journal
Art dealer Elizabeth Dee has waved goodbye to New York's Chelsea district and moved to Harlen, where she is open for business in a 12,000-square-foot gallery. Dee bought an apartment in Harlem four years ago and has spent her precious, 'free' time cycling around her neighborhood. An abandoned building with two sun-filled floors on Fifth Avenue at 126th Street, right next to the National Black Theatre. After chatting up a local merchant, Dee eventually met the owner of the building and now she has moved in.
Contemporary art gallery Gavin Brown’s Enterprise moved from the West Village to 127th Street earlier this year, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, which, coincidentally, had its first home in Dee’s new space, is planning a major expansion with noted architect David Adjaye. Many artists, including Julie Mehretu and Ugo Rondinone and his partner, John Giorno (whom Dee represents), have already migrated north. Dee is confident other galleries will follow, whether big operations in search of satellite spaces or smaller ones like her own that are getting priced out of downtown.

How Rémy Martin Ensures Their Storied Cognac Stays on Top Observer
We met Sonya Sicaire, who’s been managing the 7.5-acre vineyard in the rolling hills of Cognac almost entirely on her own for 16 years, since she inherited it from her grandfather. Like many of the 1,000 external growers Rémy Martin sources from, Sicaire does everything in the process of making great cognac from pruning and harvesting to repairing her own equipment by hand.
“I’m very proud to follow the traces of my family,” Sicaire said. “It’s hard work, and you need to observe each time. People think there’s nothing to do in vineyards because it’s green and quiet, but while the vines are independent and can grow themselves, I’m here to make the grapes good.”
Once-In-A-Lifetime Photo captures a Caiman Wearing a Crown of Butterflies in the Amazon Modern Met
Photographer Mark Cowan captured the photo of a lifetime in his research work in herpetology for the U of Michigan. Biologically, butterflies need salt to survive. Here, the water collected in the caiman's skin provides life-sustaining nutrients in a process called commensalism.

One of Mexico City's Hottest Dining Trends? Eating Insects Vogue.com
Intrepid Travel’s Real Food Adventure-Mexico local guide Ubish Yaren, says that the eating of insects dates back to pre-Hispanic times. “Why do you start eating insects or cactus or things with spines? Because of need,” says Yaren. “But now, insects are one of the most expensive ingredients in Mexican cuisine.” The commitment to insects ties in with the worldwide eat local trend and the artisan emphasis on heritage items. Mexico City’s dining scene elevates the trend of celebrating simple ingredients beyond vegetables to insects.

That Time Feminists Descended on the Miss America Pageant Vogue.com
Forty-eight years ago this week, a few hundred women arrived on the Atlantic City boardwalk and staged the infamous bra-burning protest. (Men were allowed to drive them to the event, but not to participate: “Male chauvinist-reactionaries on this issue had best stay away, nor are male liberals welcome in the demonstrations. But sympathetic men can donate money as well as cars and drivers,” the organizers instructed.)
As it turns out, no underwear was actually burned. A giant trash can was erected on the boardwalk into which were tossed mops, pots, copies of women’s magazines andPlayboy, false eyelashes, high heels, hair rollers, cosmetics, and, of course, girdles, and bras, and there were erroneous reports in the press that this ignominious heap, this hot mess, was set ablaze. But fire or no fire, this group of activists—some with nerves of steel managed to get inside the hall and unfurl a bedsheet from the balcony that read Women’s Liberation before getting thrown out—brought the issue of women’s rights to riveting attention across the country.
