Dump Trump! George Clooney for President

George Clooney

Integrity, brains–these have nothing to do with who Americans vote for. We are stupid and bored and yes, corrupt.

Tips For Living From Susan Braudy Joan Pfitzenmeyer, a savvy PT and Feldenkrais practitioner, told me a trick. I simply hum the note the ear is ringing and presto it stops ringing.  Also an ENT doctor can help by cleaning out wax.

Haughty Karl Lagerfeld

Drawing of Karl Lagerfeld

Haughtiness carries you to the finish line. It makes artists out of arrogant boobs. Isn’t it time someone pulled the plug on Karl Lagerfeld. He looks like a monster, a vampire. Or worse. What kind of taste must he have if he pulls himself together to look so creepy. Why is he an arbiter of…
