Repeat after me: “Pay. Wall.”
That’s right. The Times has put me behind (and slightly under) its new stainless steel pay wall designed to keep poor, immigrant Mexicans and the unemployed from reading the Paper of Record. If you’d like access, send a check for $0.37 to Pinch Charming, the boss’s kid. Include a note saying, “This is to help with the Duranty problem.” He’ll know what you mean. My latest stuff will flow like lava on Etna. I mean that literally.
Just to entice you, I will say that I went to lunch with Gail and MoD. Same thing, every time: The Hot Flash special – soy and estrogen on a bed. Collins told jokes about her cat that weren’t funny. Dowd cougar-talked butts.
