just in case you don’t get the time to read today’s ny post, i will fill you in on all the important stuff so that you don’t have to feel like you don’t know what’s going on . . .
first, john edwards. the 2x presidential candidate who used campaign contributions to keep his baby mama quiet while his wife was dying of cancer is back on the front page. that’s not news. the news is, according to the post, that $750,000 of the money he used to support his baby mama came from 101 year old heiress, rachel mellon who, according to her interior decorator, was madly in love with john. not sure how she feels about him now but i will continue checking the post for details and be sure to pass along.
my favorite current drama is the 44 year old woman who has been accused of taking her 5 year old daughter into a tanning booth. i don’t know if that’s really the case or not, but the fact remains, this woman is 44 years old!
the post reports patricia krentcil stated, “she’s an excellent mother and the victim of “fat and ugly” critics who are “jealous’’ of her beautiful bronzed body.”
and for more important news, be very careful when walking today. apparently, “Roving gangs of thieves are stealing manhole covers from the streets of Brooklyn, Queens and The Bronx — prying up the 320-pound, cast-iron lids and hauling them off to scrap yards. . . Stealing them creates a hazard to motorists and pedestrians.”
“The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.”
