why it's hip to be bare

click on imageTrust Mark Lotto, of the NYO, to be hip to the current fashion trends.

"Ass cleavage is really in right now," said Antonio Jeffery, a national denim specialist at Diesel Jeans in Union Square. Ass cleavage, like regular cleavage, used to be strictly for women.

Indeed, my friend, indeed...

not a democrat- what the hell am I??

I've always admired Dean's passion. Half of me wanted to see him win the Democratic nod last election purely because of his passion. It's what's totally lacking in politics nowadays and it's what sets McCain & Dean apart from the rest of the pack.

If only, if only sincerity could be the new third party in American politics (thy name is NOT libertarian. ;)

poor old, EVIL man...

signe wilkinson partial from the philadelphia daily news I feel really bad for Edgar Ray Killen, too.But not because, in Anderson Cooper's words, "the ages of all his victims combined didn't equal his age now."

I feel bad because he's a murderer! Why should his age mean a damn thing?!

viral criminal behavior

2 crime-free Philadelphia suburbs (just minutes apart) experienced horrific tragedies this week. In both cases husband turned against wife, committing murder.the crime view from center city And in both cases the husband also died. (one suicide, one retributive murder by a child ).

Many people say viral behavior is a non-existent consideration in the criminal arena. After the last several days, it seems clear that media attention surrounding an extraordinary crime (re: in one's own backyard) may send an already fragile person over the edge.

Lou Sessinger read my mind. Two days ago! (he's just that good...)

he called it "an orgy of self-congratulation"

New York Observer partial- Woodward mining the Deep Throat money pit.

Ron Rosenbaum writes that Woodward & Bernstein ( & Mark Felt ) never SOLVED anything. They failed to pin the ordering of the Watergate break-in on Nixon.

Terry Golway:"...All of which reminds us that one person's whistleblower is another person's rat fink."

yes virginia, there is a 'deep throat!!'

Now the great journalism mystery is solved & Deep Throat has moved from center stage. Woodward & Bernstein are free to concentrate on other things. They look like mob guys. I'm just sayin!good fellas?

Is there a loch ness monster? Where is Jimmy Hoffa buried? Is Prince Charles a real person or a composite character? I digress. Lookee here...

Born well after Watergate, Culeman-Beckman was 8 when, he says, Post reporter Carl Bernstein's son Jacob revealed the identity of Deep Throat to him at a summer day camp in 1988. Except for telling his mother, Culeman-Beckman would keep the secret for nearly 10 years - until spilling the beans in a high school research paper. In a 1999 Hartford Courant article about Culeman Beckman's disclosure, Felt denied that he was "Deep Throat." Bernstein said in an interview that neither he nor reporting partner Bob Woodward had ever told their wives or children their source's identity. In fact, Woodward and Bernstein had agreed not to divulge his identity until after his death...

the first man named after a porno? surely not the last...Felt was seen as the most likely suspect in The Bureau: The Secret History of the FBI, a book by former Washington Post reporter Kessler; in "Deep Throat: An Institutional Analysis," a 1992 Atlantic Monthly article by James Mann, a former Woodward colleague; and in articles in Washingtonian magazine by its editor, Jack Limpert. Felt was even suspected by Nixon, according to the White House tapes...

Nixon: Well, if they've got a leak down at the FBI, why the hell can't Gray tell us what the hell is left? You know what I mean?...

Haldeman: We know what's left, and we know who leaked it.

Nixon: Somebody in the FBI?

Haldeman: Yes, sir. Mark Felt ... If we move on him, he'll go out and unload everything. He knows everything that's to be known in the FBI. He has access to absolutely everything ...THE must-have gift for father's day!

Nixon: What would you do with Felt? ... You know what I'd do with him, the bastard? Well, that's all I want to hear about it.

Haldeman: I think he wants to be in the top spot.

Nixon: That's a hell of a way for him to get to the top.

news trifecta

(links require registration) a second part of the casino's weirdo advertising program has a woman in the south- her name legally changed to ''

Good news always comes in threes!

Philly gets a Live8 concert & we find out the true identity of Deep Throat. All in one day! I guess I was wrong, after all ;P My apologies to elder President Bush for accusing you of Deep Throating it afore the press. But the title of Anti-Christ is still up for grabs, lol!

How's this for a news trifecta?

Woman sells adspace on her baby to a casino.
