How Concerns Grown About Bruce Willis’ Health

It’s a rest day, and you might be in the mood for a quiet corner and a comfy chair.

We’ve picked the week’s best reads for you to sample.

1. Who makes the victim?

The story of Mackenzie Morrison, who was accused by her university of misrepresentation of abuse in her childhood.

(The New Yorker, reading time about 48 minutes)

Mackenzie began documenting her life with her mother and her mother’s friend, Henry Lovelace Jr., a personal trainer who won the Missouri Championship for Strongest Man in his weight group. Two days after starting the magazine, in March 2014, I wrote an article about a head injury I had suffered three months earlier. She had been hospitalized for four days in St. Luke’s, where her mother works. “My mom heard her stumble, I thought she might stumble as she climbed the stairs,” the medical records said. MacKenzie told hospital staff that she does not remember what happened.

2. Buzzfeed problems

As Buzzfeed makes another round of employee cuts — laying off a lot of news staff — a former employee writes about what made him great, and what they think of the site’s past few years.

It was fun as hell. New hires started every week, and we’d go out for drinks as we felt every night. I’ve written silly posts (with some actual stories) and listened to serious phone calls from journalists. There was seltzer on tap, an endless enthusiasm for trying new things, and a sense of exhilaration that – as many disgruntled commentators have noted over the years – we get paid to do so. For a few years, there was a sense of weightlessness in all of it, as if we could do anything or be anything, as if we had figured out how to speak a language that no one else in the media understood.

3. Mothers on environmental activism

Women talk about how motherhood affects their focus on the environment and their activism.

(Green News, about 3 minutes of reading time)

“Whenever I get depressed, I run out of steam and get shocked, I remember what they’re up against, and I go back there,” she said. “It’s so important that you wallow in self-pity and give up because that means I’m giving up on their future.” At a recent local climate gathering, Eileen’s children came to watch her address the crowd – encouraged by their presence and “seeing how proud they are of me” as she spoke.

4. Bruce Willis’ health

Concerns about actor Bruce Willis’ health have been shared in Hollywood for years – this story shatters what was going on, which led to the news that Willis suffers from aphasia.

(LA Times, reading time about 10 minutes)

These individuals questioned whether the actor was fully aware of his surroundings on the site, where he was often paid $2 million for two days of work, according to documents seen by The Times. The filmmakers described heart-wrenching scenes when the beloved “Pulp Fiction” star grappled with his loss of mental sharpness and his inability to remember his dialogue. The actor who traveled with Willis was feeding the star his lines through an earpiece, known in the industry as an “earring,” according to several sources. Most of the action scenes, particularly those that involved a choreographed shoot, were filmed using a double body as Willis’s replacement.

(GQ, reading time about 30 minutes)

What I encountered instead was something even more surprising: a human being who was on some serious depths, a lot of it public, a lot of it not, and he came out with a new and better understanding of himself and his life. He has spent his last days this winter mostly indoors, reading scripts, watching movies and preparing to welcome a baby with his wife, Rikko Shibata for a year. The names have already been chosen: Akira Francesco for a boy and Lennon Oji for a girl. “Oggy was my father’s nickname. And my uncle—director Francis Ford Coppola—“decided to change his name to Francesco,” he says, and excitedly showed me a two-month ultrasound on his phone. “I think it’s very sweet. It’s like a little edamame. a small bead.”

6. Internet stalking

A man named Matthew Hardy has stalked people online – some for years, and has frightened them to dangerous degrees.

(The Guardian, reading time about 17 minutes)

This hunt can go on for years. Sometimes, the stalker spreads lies about the victims to her friends, family, and co-workers: that she had an affair with her boss, or even her stepfather. The stalker hacks the victim’s social media accounts, or creates fake accounts in their name. He pretended to be the victim to have sexually explicit conversations. He was even sending stolen intimate photos of her.

…and a classic from the archives…

In this story from 1986, Calvin Trillen wrote about the life and career of major crime reporter Edna Buchanan.

(The New Yorker, reading time about 35 minutes)

All experts would agree, I think, that Edna’s classic advances should include a key element in crime reporting – the simple, factual statement that scores a hit. The question is where should the tremor be. There is a lot to be said for getting started. I’m somewhat biased for Edna’s lead in last year’s story about a woman about to stand trial for a murder plot: “Bad things happen to Elkin’s widows’ husbands.” On the other hand, I can understand others’ preference for the device of starting a crime story with one or more traditional sentences or two, and then returning the reader to his chair with a brief sentence used as a sharp object.
