My mom just cancelled her subscription to the New Yorker. She had subscribed since 1960 and had been a reader since she was about twelve (1942). Her mother had been a reader since it's inception and a subscriber since the close of ww2. The magazine was ever-present in their Lexington Ky. home. Mom would walk down weekly to the news store the day it arrived. The reason for cancellation she explained was that the quality had gone down hill, the cost too high ($69.95 annual) and it had become too thin. Plus the cartoons haven't been funny in years.
Based on the provisional F1 calendar released today, I may be in NJ on July 16.

Said to be a pollock by kligmans estate. Ruth was around the art scene in the 80's and 90's. Even collaborating with m bidlow. It was common knowledge that she had pollack works that she had collaborated in. The pollack estate (it was said) was not cooperative in authenticating them in her lifetime. This could be one?

Will you Oregonians go to check out my friend Garrett's latest project?
He is opening a restaurant tonight in your great city, it is called 'The Imperial'. He has been running restaurants for many years. This is the first one that he is doing from the ground up.
He is the person that I have been trying to introduce to Skinny for a while now. You guys may have already crossed paths.
I have only seen pictures; the place looks like they are serious about what they are doing.
really hard to take obama seriously when he punted away a filibuster proof majority in congress. if he wanted to be fdr, he blew his chance.
((could not agree more on the Vietnamese comment) The New York Restaurant Wish List By THE NEW YORK TIMES Pete Wells: A really first-rate Cantonese restaurant, like what Hakkasan could have been if the quality were as high as the prices. A spectacle with better than average food, where tourists will feel like they saw New York and New Yorkers will feel like they weren’t ripped off. (In other words, the kind of place that the Rainbow Room was under Joe Baum.) A Moroccan restaurant with a chef who pays attention to ingredients. More, and better, restaurants in Harlem, Bedford-Stuyvesant and the Bronx. And a place that does for Vietnamese food what Ayada, Sripraphai or, in a slightly different vein, Pok Pok Ny have done for Thai.
