The New York Times called attention to Hillary Clinton’s wardrobe. Where are the Fashion Cop articles on all the males candidates’ spending on their appearances, and their and spending in general? Exactly.
A response to Tim Hunt’s remarks about the annoyance of having to work with woman scientist in labs. He has evidently since resigned. What reason did he give? Women have no sense of humor, can’t work with them, can’t send them out for coffee anymore and they cry. And they can’t help being #distractinglysexy .
Jules Feiffer are friends who are out of touch. He wrote the introduction to The Sylvia Chronicles, and I will be forever grateful. I was also surprised. Yes, we were friends, but I had no idea what he felt about my work. It would have been rude to ask or perhaps even weird or would have gotten an edgy response. Luckily it only came up when I asked him to write an introduction (or no doubt it was the publisher’s idea: Let’s get someone really famous to write the intro.) He did, and it was good. Check out Kill My Mother, which he published last year, and the new book, Out Of Line: The Art Of Jules Feiffer, about him and his work by Martha Fay, Leonard S. Marcus and Mike Nichols.
