The First Reading of Behind the Bedroom Door

will be at my neighborhood Barnes and Noble on Broadway and 82nd St. on January 15th. WOOOOOOOO-HOOOOOOOOOO! Rachel Resnick gave me very good advice today, which was to come up with a more G-rated reading (one my nephews could attend) and one that's more racy and raw. Curious? Read more about Bedroom Door...

Come one, come all. (Hey, that's a double entendre!)

Vice Presidential Debate Rating

Wow. This was a good debate (at least comparatively). I was extremely impressed with Biden, but my favorite moment was Sarah Palin's Freudian slip: When she said "McCain should leave" instead of "McCain should lead..."

Palin was decent. There is a definite sharpness to her--she was clearly able to keep a lot of recently tutored facts in her head. Which makes her all the more scary.

Biden was terrific--I like him 100 percent better than I did before--and his voice breaking when he talked about his kids and the car accident was both poignant and actually a great way to quash Palin's "I'm a hardworking mom!" schtick!

But it was refreshing to watch a debate in which issues were actually addressed, questions answered, important causes talked about, like Darfour.

Apples and honey and a sweet New Year

What could be more renewing than autumn in the Berkshires with my two favorite boys in the whole wide world?

A wild and wooly Woodstock weekend

I should have been a hippie. Peace out.

Is it my imagination?

Or is McCain less than inspiring? I'm listening to and watching his speech and thinking that he seems like a carefully modulated automaton delivering memorized lines and many redundancies: "I will fix problems that need to be fixed" instead of simply "I will fix problems."

I don't understand why this would even be a contest? Truly: a contest between good and evil, as primal as muslim fundamentalism in its way.

Ciao, belli--
Isn't my nephew Jordan so handsome? He's my little heartbreaker!
