Oh, those tabloids!

When I saw the giant Daily News headline SARAH! I thought they were congratulating our friend Sarah Macfadden on her big jewelry sale to toney retailer ABC Carpet & Home, but our Sarah's not that big (not yet): it was surprise gold medal figure skater Sarah Hughes of Long Island. She's also on the front of the Post, under a big headline screaming MURDERED, which made me start, until I saw that it was an unfortunate congruence with the sad story of captive Wall St Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. You know these editors are agonizing over what is the real news. But the best line was on the back of the Post, where a picture of fallen favorite Michelle Kwan was tagged NO KWAN DO!

  • Maybe they're making fun of that Oriental accent. She should sue. Oh, wait a minute, she's American, and she'll still make plenty of Thai Kwan dough.
