Notably: Well, it’s Donald Duck’s birthday (1934): the Disney character made his first appearance on this day in “The Wise Little Hen.” It’s also the kick-off–not a moment too soon, to detract from that jubilee in Putrefying Albion–of the Leipzig Bach Festival, running through June 19. We note it here because Palm Coast tends to empty out around this time, as thousands flock to Leipzig.

While the questions around Ms. Abu Akleh’s death may be difficult to answer, that is no excuse for ignoring them. Reporters are aware of the dangers inherent in covering armed conflict, and they know that armies are not keen to have their violent missions exposed to public scrutiny. But the work of journalists is essential to public accountability for the actions of any country’s military. Journalists cannot do their jobs if they are targeted with impunity by any side in a conflict. Even if she was not singled out, Israel still needs to grapple with how this happened and what can be done to avoid similar tragedies.
–From “Who Killed Journalist Shireen Abu Akleh?,” a New York Times editorial, June 3, 2022.
