Part I:  The New Yorker

Passages from The New Yorker  issue dated March 17, 2014—

"Both autism and psychopathy entail a lack of empathy. Psychologists, though, distinguish between the 'cognitive empathy' deficits of autism (difficulty understanding what emotions are, trouble interpreting other people’s nonverbal signs) and the 'emotional empathy' deficits of psychopathy (lack of concern about hurting other people, an inability to share their feelings). The subgroup of people with neither kind of empathy appears to be small, but such people may act out their malice in ways that can feel both guileless and brutal."  — "The Reckoning," by Andrew Solomon

"The question of what constitutes a story is troublesome." — "Long Story Short," by Dana Goodyear

Part II: The New York Times
