TWMM

...or, This Week's Murphy Malfunction, as found on page 19 of today's East End Inde­pendent in Karen Fredericks' cartoon:

"...why Billionaire Mayor Mike Bloomberg has been such a harsh and relentless critic of Senator Carol Gillibrand.... "

(Psssst!, Rick... whoever "Carol" may be, the Senator's given name is "Kirsten.")

Yes, it's a cartoon and Ms. Frederick's is listed as a "Contributor," but you're the "Editor-In-Chief," which is why you get the big bucks and an open (food!) tab at Publisher Jerry Della Femina's restaurant.

Elsewhere in The Indy...

Now I don't know whether this is a typo or a blown caption, but next to a page B5 image of the former Jacqueline Bouvier, it simply says:

"Jacqueline Onassis, 1929"

Perhaps because it's a the "Horoscopes" page and that's how they do it... never noticed before... but that's a photo from a period when the lady was "Jackie Kennedy."

Or mebbe I'm just getting cranky in this heat.

Or is it "crankier?"

Re: heat - heard on NPR today and in print.

NPR and The New York Times! Must be true.

Is "TWMM" going to become a weekly feature? Rick sure makes it easy for you.

Doesn't he, though!
