Confessions of a temporary Manhattan-ite

New York would be twice as much fun with half as many people here. I’ll do my part to relieve the city of humanity when I head for home Friday afternoon.

Checking the news, there are a few things I’m completely indifferent about that don’t really deserve much comment.

Those are:

George Michael says ‘goodbye’ to the pop world. Adeu, weirdo.

Ashley Olsen sues the National Enquirer for $40 million. She says they’re trying to ruin her career, and lawyers for the Enquirer say “Duh!”

30 kilograms of plutonium missing from a U.K. nuclear site. I guess I shouldn’t be indifferent about that, but that’s just how relaxed I am right now.
