Save My Home State!

I'm not a political news junkie, but Matt Bai's piece on the upcoming New Jersey gubernatorial election is just fantastic. A preview:

[Corzine] can no longer conceal his own defensiveness. With voters, [he] sometimes punctuates his answers with a single word — seriously — as if they otherwise might take him for a jokester. During our conversation in his office, I prefaced a question by acknowledging that Corzine had, indeed, gotten quite a bit done in his term. To my surprise, the governor leaned forward and cut me off. He seemed to think I was patronizing him. “No, Matt, I don’t know whether you believe this, but I think we have gotten a lot done!” he said, clearly exasperated. “That’s the thing people don’t get.”

I know everyone's seen these, but I had to have them on my site.

Andre J.



I remember seeing Andre J. on the cover of French Vogue and thinking, "Hey, there's that guy from the neighborhood." I think he lived near my former apartment in Greenwich Village because I would see him all the time. I wasn't a huge fan of the beard, but I liked his long hair and that he always seemed to be walking with a purpose. I also liked how confident he was with his identity.

For Halloween this year, I almost considered dressing like him. But we'll leave that to the truly fabulous.

If you can think of a Halloween costume for me, I'm all ears!

(By the way, I don't mean to disrespect Andre by saying "him" -- I just used the pronoun because it was less creepy than saying "it.")

I'll be honest: I think the glittery face is kind of creepy. But I also love looking at the jellyfish and the water-flowers.
