4 segments

New York Times correspondent Michael S. Schimidt and Wall Street Journal reporter Sam Dagher weigh in on the Iraq the U.S. is leaving after 9 years of occupation. Then we’ll take a look at the life and work of the famous writers and friends, Dorothy Thompson and Rebecca West. David Margolick tells the story behind one of the defining images of the civil rights movement—a photograph of a black student and a jeering white student in front of Little Rock Central High School in 1957. Plus, our language maven Patricia T. O’Conner explains the origins of holiday words and phrases.
