everything goes to hell
New York Times Science Section last week. Suicide is on the cover. The bottom of the page is about malaria. Full Page 2 — Killer Asteroids. Top half of page 3? cancer. lower half? tumor. Following page? The problem of formula-deficient feeding.
The 5th page became brighter. The whole thing deals with suicide. 6 pages? Legionellosis. A crappy marriage is on page seven. To run the whole side is to run to John and a urinary tract infection. Page 8 is a continuation of Malaria if you survive long enough.

It will take weeks.” Garage flooded. A car towed to a junkyard. Houses, trucks and cars are parked in the bay.

You should express your gratitude to She really should have dedicated her book to Regis.
Government Chouse Down
Current and future Gov. Kathy Hochul – Zeldin can’t make it – dined at Tudor City Steakhouse.Coming from a Cipriani Columbus Day speech, her husband made a reservation. first time. They have long wanted to come. Quiet dinner. I sat in the back of the library corner. Celebrating one guest’s birthday, posing with the others, and best of all, was a good tipper. It was Champagne + Sancerre + Beet Salad + Branzino.
odds and ends
