Carl Icahn’s Failed Raid on Washington – The New Yorker

Saturday, August 19, 2017

If you squint, Trump and Icahn look alike. Both grew up in Queens and have an outer-borough chip on their shoulders. Both first came to tabloid prominence against the gaudy backdrop of the nineteen-eighties. Both are brash, plainspoken street fighters, examples of an American archetype: the populist rich guy. But Trump comes from the wealthy enclave of Jamaica Estates, whereas Icahn grew up in a lower-middle-class family in Bayswater. His…

But of course, they were once worn, nestled intimately against a body that’s now gone. Which may give you the faint feeling of a rabbit run over your grave. At the Atlantic, fashion historian Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell writes about…
