Wonderful weekend with Ron-tastic. We met up on Friday afternoon for dinner at Ping-Pong (I am obsessed with their sesame chicken). Then we realized we’d started our date way too early – it was 9 and we weren’t due to go out until 11:30. Hung out for a while and then went dancing, Richard joined […]

Excellent article on eXile: As Edward Herman has noted, ?One of the most durable features of the U.S. culture is the inability or refusal to recognize U.S. crimes. The media have long been calling for the Japanese and Germans to admit guilt, apologize, and pay reparations. But the idea that this country has committed huge […]

Phil Donahue kicks Bill O’Reilly’s

Phil Donahue kicks Bill O’Reilly’s ass on The O’Reilly Factor: We want — we don’t want to bomb Afghanistan. Chapter One of the 21st century is the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Had a great night last night. Ron and I went to see With or Without Wings. I hadn’t seen it since they revived it and, as usual, Mierka was wonderful. I hope I’m that cool when I’m 33. We’d had dinner at Angelina’s – I as usual had the cruelty platter (veal parmigiana) and salad. […]
