Presidents and Civil Liberties from Wilson to Obama

This book is a history of the civil liberties records of American presidents from Woodrow Wilson to Barack Obama. It examines the full range of civil liberties issues: First Amendment rights of freedom of speech, press, and assembly; due process; equal protection, including racial justice, women's rights, and lesbian and gay rights; privacy rights, including reproductive freedom; and national security issues. The book argues that presidents have not protected or advanced civil liberties, and that several have perpetrated some of worst violations. Some Democratic presidents (Wilson and Roosevelt), moreover, have violated civil liberties as badly as some Republican presidents (Nixon and Bush). This is the first book to examine the full civil liberties records of each president (thus,...

Welcome to Rao's, New York's Most Exclusive Restaurant - Vanity Fair

For the uninitiated, Rao’s has been at this corner in East Harlem, an Italian neighborhood that was even larger than Little Italy back in the day, since 1896. (And if you’re looking for the safest corner in Manhattan to park your car, look no... ) This year marks the restaurant’s 120th anniversary. It began as a saloon and is still in its original one room (slightly remodeled after a 1995 fire), whose paneled walls are festooned with Christmas lights and photos of Frankie Valli and Frank Sinatra. There is a bar at one end, a jukebox along the wall, and seating for about 60. It looks like the finished basement that belonged to the most popular kid in high school, class of 1962. Known by its regulars as the Joint, Rao’s serves Monday to... Typically there are no reservations, just table assignments, which were designated decades ago by Pellegrino Sr. and his aunt Anna Pellegrino, who owned the place with her husband, Vincent Rao. ) After Anna and Vincent died, in 1994, Pellegrino Sr. and Vincent’s nephew, Ron Straci, a lawyer, became co-owners. One table each night belongs to Straci, who is 81. Some customers come weekly, others come monthly, quarterly, annually, or only at Christmas. When any of the 85 original “owners” die, their families will often inherit the table. On their appointed night, diners arrive when they like, and the table is theirs for the duration. If they can’t come, they either give it to family or friends, sell it as a donation for a favorite charity, or, rarely, turn it back to the house. Which means that if you want to get in you have to know someone who knows someone who knows someone else. Which is how Pellegrino got his nickname, Frankie No. Some of Rao’s regulars are connected—to show business—which is how Pellegrino was cast by Martin Scorsese for GoodFellas (see the cigar-smoking chef in the cooking-in-prison scene), along with... Bo Dietl, the private investigator who began his career as an East Harlem cop and was granted his weekly table in 1977 (the big one, up front), joined him in GoodFellas and shot his scenes in The Wolf of Wall Street with Leonardo DiCaprio here. Through the years you could find Keith Richards, Billy Joel, Celine Dion, and Rod Stewart singing along with the jukebox until all hours. When Hillary Clinton ran for the Senate, in 2000, she came for a late dinner, and the Secret Service locked the door from the outside. Trump ate here years ago, his daughter Ivanka more recently. Unless requested, there are no menus at Rao’s. Staples such as seafood salad, lemon chicken, and super-size meatballs are served family-style. The food is homey and most often delicious. Rao’s marinara sauce, sold retail through the family-owned Rao’s Specialty Foods since 1991, is a historic cornerstone of the kitchen’s success. Next month marks the publication of the fourth Rao’s cookbook, Rao’s Classics , written by Pellegrino and his 46-year-old son, Frank. Pellegrino Jr. is the managing partner of the Rao’s that opened at Caesars Palace, in Las Vegas, in 2006 (350 seats, which includes the outdoor terrace. come and get ’em) and also the Rao’s that opened in Hollywood, in 2013 (100 seats. As Dietl says, “It’s like walking back into the good old days. Some of those days were good. Charles Rao bought the saloon in 1896 from the George Ehret Brewery. the beer was sold directly from the bar’s taps. Charles died in 1909, and his brother Joseph ran the place until his death, in 1930. Vincent and his brother Louis became operating owners then, keeping the bar open during Prohibition. Neighbors made wine in their cellars and pumped it into Rao’s basement through a hose. Louis ran the restaurant until he died, in 1958, when Vincent took over. At that point it was primarily a steakhouse, with some Italian dishes, but, by 1974, business was so brisk that his wife, Anna, joined in to expand the Italian side of the menu. Vincent, who was born in the house next door to Rao’s, was raised there and married there. He died there, at 87, in 1994. Anna died that year as well. The two nephews have owned the place ever since. Pellegrino Sr. sat on the patio and sipped his Chivas, his gold turtle cuff links flashing. In Rao’s Classics , we learn of his obsession with the turtle: “With its impregnable exterior, methodical and plodding style, resilience.
