A “Passion” far beyond anything I expected…

I’d seen and read the reviews, heard the arguments and the debates… but nothing prepared me for the experience I had tonight at the opening of “The Passion of the Christ.”  It reached out across the ages, throughout all time, past race, creed, color, religion… deep into the hearts of what we all actually are: just […]

Bob Colacello, former editor of ‘Interview’ magazine, appeared in Manhattan at Phillips de Pury & Company on Thursday evening, to auction off some of his private Warhol collection.  He gave a fascinating speech on the subject of his two biographies, ‘Ronnie and Nancy: Their Path to the White House–1911 to 1980′ and ‘Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up’.  What may seem like a strange […]

Jane Fonda: “I’m So Sorry”

Jane Fonda, appearing in Huntington, NY at the Book Revue to promote her book, “Jane Fonda: My Life So Far,” was more than apologetic for her well known mistakes of the past.  But that didn’t stop many (vets?) in the audience from heckling her and holding up signs expressing their disdain for her.  Most of the audience, […]

Our Fathers

Should we feel personally betrayed, hurt or disappointed by President Clinton’s recent faux pas?  I do.  I’ll tell you a little story of my very first visit to Washington, D.C. today, which drove home many a realization for me.
