Senate Coots

Sad in and of itself. Same guys who were less than gracious to Anita Hill are still around for the Christine Ford – Brett Kavanaugh fiasco. Sitting on the Judiciary Committee were/are Patrick Leahy, Orrin Hatch, Chuck Grassley. Potential Presidential candidate Joe Biden also on the Committee then wasn’t woke either. After they trashed Hill, they voted for Clarence Thomas.

There is no equivalency here. Anita Hill had grievances as a professional employee. Christine Ford loosely recounts Kavanaugh’s alleged behavior at a drunken party in high school.

UWS Sweep

Here’s to all the UWS sufferers who lose parking spaces for the sake of TV shows. Amy Sherman Palladino gave you your due (Dr. Husband).

She acknowledged those who make the frequent sacrifice on tonight’s Emmy’s. Her brilliant Amazon Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was the street sweeper. A blinking light in an otherwise dismally dim show.

Killing Eve robbed. SNL loser. But. Yay. Henry Winkler. Peter Dinklage. Claire Foy. Bill Hader. Game of Thrones.

Rain Men

Anderson Cooper. Chris Cuomo. Don Lemon? Ali Belshi. Many more of the ususal suspects in rain gear. Standing in front of the ocean or a palm tree. Very very wet. All day. All night. Why?

And. If you were a jerk in high school, your life could be over. Career kaput. Prospects nil. Linked-In unhinged. One person can tell Ronan Farrow and that’s all folks!

Jimmy in the Park

The Tonight Show in Central Park. Amazing how much stuff it takes to put on a TV show outdoors. So humid today that the walk was like completing hot yoga. Drippy clothes.

Hope they have fans tonight. Jimmy Fallon. Blake Lively. Carrie Underwood. People were already lining up before noon. The show itself was silly. Sitting at his desk in front of a huge crowd.

Quiet Grey

City schools closed for Rosh Hashanah. Two days. Today every local New York network channel is commemorating 9/11 seventeen years ago. Until noon. A surreal quiet around the city. Even Times Square. Drizzly grey low clouds act as a further shroud. Things should liven up soon. Jimmy Fallon’s bringing his Tonight Show to Central Park this Thursday.

Not good. When Omarosa thinks the same way I do. She told The View she believes Mike Pence’s chief of staff Nick Ayers is the anonymous op-ed author. Don Jr. says it’s a low-level. Qui sait?

Sports Squall

An ugly tornado hit the women’s U.S. Open final. Men and women should be equally penalized for bad behavior. But. Berating officials is not tolerated in any other sport. Red cards, ejections. Why is it allowed at all in tennis? That said. Serena could have been more gracious to Naomi Osaka who played better. Williams should have taken her rant off the court.

Injuries continue to rain on the NFL and its ratings. More new QB’s. Who are they? Tiger had an early storm surge, but Keegan eeked out a win over Rosie at the BMW on a blustery Monday. Finau the right Ryder Cup team pick.

Fashion Woke

Evening stroll last night. No Parking signs along CPW. But. A parade of big black cars were parked for six blocks. Oh. Ralph Lauren’s 50th Anniversary show. Who knew? Oprah. And such. Glitz on Bethesda Terrace. No Cardi B – Nicki fountain-wrestling though. That we know.

Sidewalk spots buzzing on Columbus. Fashionistas out and about. Charity walks and races. Lots of pink. Yes. It’s early Fall in the City.
