Madonna. In her sixties. Probably with a subscription to AARP magazine. The current adored and adored love of her life – perhaps temporarily – is Ahlamalik Williams. He’s 26 and probably does roller skates at the store for his copies of Bop Magazine and Teen Vogue. This sweet boy’s parents are younger than her, three years older than his daughter, and are dancers too, so no jokes about the many moves he can make.
Either way, between their rompers, the news is that she’s co-writing – along with Oscar-winning actor Diablo Cody – a biopic of her life. Madge herself will run it. She, however, will not play it. Alec Baldwin’s newborn baby, his fifth baby with his second wife, could play Ahlamalik.
The one that got away
A Michael Fuchs Gallery in Berlin holds a video of four types of characters described by the Greek philosopher Galen, a VIP whom I have never met personally. On this one, for some reason, Cate Blanchett bleached into “Sanguine”, “Choleric”, “Melancholic” and “Phlegmatic” for 3 minutes ¹ / ₂. And for some reason I don’t understand, makes faces. And say “I love you, I don’t love you.” There is an app called Acute Art, a way to discover and collect this “augmented reality”. I now know why I never interviewed the Greek philosopher Galen.
Fools on the parade
Like everything else that won’t – the traditional 2 ¹ / ₂-mile Thanksgiving oom-pah to Central Park West won’t. The floats will attach to a few vehicles. The 80-100 handlers of each balloon will watch it on TV like everyone else. Santa has to get up at the end, unless he and Mrs. Claus blow up the temperature controls.
There’s about a third BS in line maybe for our presidency. I, Mrs Adams, will give you some information. The precedent semi-exists.
March 1849, a Sunday at noon, President Polk’s term expired and he did not seek re-election. George Dallas (a town was named after him) was VP. When President-elect Zachary Taylor refused to take the oath on Sunday, Lord’s Day, we were without a leader on that day. Our third in line was Missouri Senator David Rice Atchison. Folklore maintains that Atchison took over the presidency for this day, but that is for sure. I was not there. Bio: Born, Frogtown, Ky. Educated, Transylvania U. Small “unofficial” presidential library in Atchison, Kan. His statue in Plattsburg, Mo., bears the caption “President of the United States for a day”.
This “12th president for a day” liked to say that it was “the most honest administration this country has ever had”.
Pre-CV, we smeared too many lawyers, now not enough. Everyone files a complaint. Divorce, custody, wills, mortgages, evictions, litigation, reorganizations, layoffs, bankruptcies, promissory notes, loan modifications, banking problems, collections not returned, loans, businesses threatened with foreclosure, money not repaid, increases canceled, entrepreneurs fail not showing, promises not kept, work not done, lousy parents, repossession of property with other lawyers defending millions of homeowners, etc.
But New York Republicans, rest assured. After the cutting edge leadership from Mr. and Mrs. de Blasio and the AOC BSOs sticking to us like crap, fear not. Following the Goldwater debacle for president, NYC elected Republican Mayor John Lindsay, Republican Mayor Giuliani, (then) Republican Mayor Bloomberg. So, remember that House Stark motto on “Game of Thrones”: “Winter is coming”.
