Indeed, this case may represent the most egregious violation of campus due process I have ever heard of.
Saying goodbye with a bang. When The New Yorker approached me last year and asked me to write a piece on "love," I immediately declined. What, after all, do I know about love? For that matter, what do you?
And what, in the name of all that is holy, does The New Yorker know about it? But four months ago, events transpired in such a way that I now feel as if I have no choice; more than that, I embrace the opportunity to write about something I do not understand, but that overwhelms me with its singularity and power.
Plain and simple, I am going to tell you about my family, and in particular about my mothers, and when I am done I will, I am sure, have exhausted everything I could possibly know about love.
Before you get really invested, my mothers are both deceased. Introductions are perhaps in order.
For those not in the know, my birth mother was a woman named Miranda Priestly, a formidable woman who, in her lifetime, rose from very humble beginnings to edit Runway magazine, went on to become an executive vice-president of the still-thriving Elias-Clarke, and eventually "retired" to take over the Board of Trustees at the New Metropolitan Museum of Art, a position she occupied with great success until almost precisely four months ago.
My second, adoptive mother was Andrea Sachs--yes, that Andrea Sachs, the one who wrote all those essays and books you read in college, and whose example I have ever followed. We often joked that I got 'the writing gene' from her, though in fact we shared no genes at all.
Andrea was "Mom," and Miranda was "Mother," for future reference. Well, of course that wasn't always true--five-year-old boys don't often address the materfamilias as "Mother," and when I was young, she was "Mommy.
Always bookish, I decided that the sheer literary formality of "Mother" would serve me well with a woman who never quite seemed to approve of me.
She never objected to the change, or even remarked on it. But Andrea was always Mom. Mother and Mom were a full twenty-five years apart in age, and their romance began while Mother was still separating from her third husband, my biological father.
She was pregnant with me and soon discovered my father wanted nothing to do with her--nor, at the time, with me. It was an unhappy period for her, to say the least, until she fell unexpectedly and violently in love with Mom: Are the connotations not already unsavory?
Certainly, when the story blew open a few months after my birth, all of New York was quick to press a fluttering, scandalized hand to its breast. It lasted, and the furor died down. It is strange to think that people tend to find stories of contentment the least worth hearing: But the truth is, my parents were always very happy, at least, as far as any of us could tell.
Of course there are things my sisters and I will never know: Like most parents, they tried to shield their children from unhappiness when possible. But I truly believe that shielding was rarely necessary.
By any rational standard, maybe it shouldn't have worked. But it did, and their quiet, understated, decades-long pleasure in each other fascinates me, if nobody else. And this is my feature article. By their own account, my parents went from zero to married in no time flat. They certainly acted like an old married couple: But for all this, they were never legally wed.
Following California's example, New York state legalized gay marriage inbut my parents never seemed particularly interested. This was understandable in Mother's case, since she'd already suffered through three weddings, each in decreasing degrees of hoopla.
As I understand it, her first marriage began with an extravagant bash, her second one with decidedly less fanfare, and her third--her last--with a quiet ceremony only for friends and family, as if she had already predicted the union's eventual demise and was keeping her head down, waiting for the blow.
Small wonder, then, that she wholeheartedly embraced the idea of living in sin.Home / Others / Biological Criminal Behavior – Andrea Yates. Choose a criminal offender who committed crimes due to a biological reason.
