September means school is back. But this year something’s very different. Nicolaia Rips reveals why so many teenage girls no longer sound like squeaky girls from the movie Clueless, and instead sound like raspy-throated lawyers from Staten Island. Then the always enlightening James Wolcott discusses a new book that details the kaleidoscopic cultural influence of drag in New York City, from the Harlem ball scene to Stonewall, to Wigstock, to Kinky Boots on Broadway. And finally, last week was a sad one, with the passing of Jimmy Buffett at age 76, but his good friend Tom Freston shares his memories of the incomparable singer-songwriter.
