About Me:
Middle-aged (thank god); married (oddly enough); native New Yorker; one (thoroughly magnificent, thanks) child, She Who Must Be Obeyed, aka HM (Her Majesty). But a mere lowly end-user by profession, and a former [pretty much everything, at least in somewhat limited first-world terms]. Extravagant (mostly organic) cook, slapdash (completely organic) gardener, brain space originally assigned to names and faces piled up with the overflow from the desperately overcrowded Old Movie and Broadway Trivia section, garage space which was originally assigned to a car piled up with boxes of books. Dreadful housekeeper, indifferent dresser, takeout menu ninja and the proud owner of a major percentage of the partially finished crafts projects on the east coast of the continental United States. The handsome gentleman in the picture is Hoa Hakananai'a. He joined the collection of the British Museum in 1868. His name, which is thought to mean "stolen or hidden friend," was given to him by his previous owners when he was collected.

A Class Act

Governor Palin is a little upset about double standards

“When I heard Barack Obama state in one of his interviews … that his wife was off limits, meaning, his family was off limits, I naively believed that they respected that … that it applied to all of us, but it didn’t apply.”

Kennedy: Tastefully Appointed, or Not

By: Sunday January 4, 2009 3:00 pm

Rumors of Ms. Kennedy’s inevitability having, apparently, been a touch exaggerated, we’re back to gaming Governor Paterson’s senatorial appointment.

Bush Sold Handshake to “Pardon Guy” Isaac Toussie’s Dad

By: Monday December 29, 2008 1:30 pm

The White House says they didn’t know about the donation to the RNC’s McCain Victory Committee from Robert Toussie, the father of the man with the rescinded pardon. Unfortunately, in the picture which has since come to light of the two shaking hands, Bush is thanking him for the check.

Caroline Kennedy – “I have to work twice as hard”

By: Saturday December 27, 2008 4:02 pm

Caroline Kennedy says she’s willing to work harder than the other candidates for Senator Clinton’s seat. She hasn’t addressed how long it’s going to take her to catch up at that rate.

Justice O’Connor Gets the Gift of Deodorant

By: Friday December 26, 2008 1:26 pm

Justice Sandy is getting an award for her noble fight against politicizing the judiciary, her previous battle against letting the winner of the 2000 presidential election choose her successor having worked out so well. Presumably the award, like Bush v. Gore and Justice O’Connor’s ethics, is limited to the present circumstances.

Tonia Thomas: An Unusual Soldier in the War on Christmas

By: Wednesday December 24, 2008 11:30 am

The interesting thing about the War on Christmas this year is that the Falwell family is fighting on both sides.

Deborah Howell’s Foolish Consistency

By: Monday December 22, 2008 1:50 pm

Deborah Howell, the ombudsman of the Washington Post, is writing an endless series of valedictory columns to mark her departure after three contentious years on the job. What’s her takeaway? Amazingly, exactly what she thought she knew coming in: coverage in the Washington Post just isn’t slanted enough towards conservatives – even the conservative stuff.

The best New York government money can buy

By: Friday December 19, 2008 8:00 pm

You have to wonder why Ms. Kennedy is wasting her time with Al Sharpton and the Mayors of upstate cities. If she wants to parachute into national office from NY, Chuck Schumer is the guy she should be talking to.

Laura tells Obama family: no room at the inn

By: Friday December 12, 2008 8:00 pm

Those classy folks who are departing the presidency have told the Obama family they can’t have a few rooms in Blair House to move into a few days early so the girls can start school on time. Most people who are as noisily enthusiastic about Christmas as the current occupants of the White House might hear “in the manger” around this time of year and think “baby.” Apparently, they’ve decided to go with “dog”
