GemQueen found Ephron’s new book disappointing. KPants loved Let the Great World Spin, a TrekBooks pick, short stories stemming from walk between World Trade Towers. Madman recommends Elmore Leonard’s Djibouti, Somalia and pirates. PithyVinegar finds more substance in Franz’s Freedom than I did, so I’ll give it another try. She was compelled by the politics of conversation.
K9Queen found Panama City’s Casco Viejo reminiscent of Havana, colorful French Colonial architecture, wrought iron balconies, sophisticated cuisine. Panama’s rainforests lush with exotic monkeys, birds. Watching National Geographic’s Great Migrations makes you wonder if there is a god, or something.
Great wine choice for Thanksgiving: Kenwood Zinfandel, Jack London reserve. Dowd mailing it in lately. Oprah? Cleopatra? Krugman and Rich agree about the ‘rich’. Does anybody recognize anyone in Page Six anymore? Publicists on parade. When does celebrity trump loyalty? Happy 24th to WilliamHenry!
