Today in Tablet Magazine, New York Times Magazine columnist Virginia Heffernan remembers J.D. Salinger, who lived near the New Hampshire town in which she grew up, and discusses how men and women might consider his work differently. This week’s Vox Tablet podcast contains a slide show of remarkable photos taken throughout the Pale of Settlement between 1912 and 1914. The catastrophe in Haiti prompts parenting columnist Marjorie Ingall to discuss death with her daughters, and to discuss discussing death with your kids. Josh Lambert offers his weekly round-up of forthcoming Jewish books. The Scroll, too, finds itself tempted from time to time to move out to a cabin in the middle of nowhere, but how would you ensure good Internet?
