Mike Koltak: ‘My father’s saying was about a kid in college who wrote: ‘Dear Dad: No mon, no fun, your son.’ To which the dad replied: ‘Dear Son: Too bad, so sad, your dad.”
Chip Ellis has located the web site for his $150 custom-made suits: thaitailornet.com. His tailor’s English isn’t perfect, but it beats my Thai. Of course, if it’s cheap off-the-rack suits you’re after, then – as I’ve written elsewhere, to Charles’s dismay – you’d want to go to Men’s Suits in New York, 118 East 59th Street, or its alternate location at Fifth Avenue and 47th Street. That’s what it’s called: Men’s Suits. Like a supermarket called, simply: Food.
If the automobile – due in the U.S. a year from now – is half as much fun to drive as the web site, I might even break down and buy a new car. (Well, not new new, but in a couple of years, once used models start going on sale.)

I met a Macarthur Fellow, recently – one of those guys who get a $500,000 ‘genius’ grant with no strings attached. Paul Lerman: “Did you see the recent New Yorker cartoon? Artist and friend having tea in typical studio with canvases and paints everywhere, he says: ‘My whole goddamn Macarthur is in NASDAQ.'”
Rob Greene: ‘The Republicans claim that after the Reagan tax cut, the Democratic congress increased spending – thus the ballooning deficits. The Republicans don’t mention that Reagan failed to use his veto power to curb spending. Clinton, however, effectively used his veto power to control spending, which the Republicans also fail to mention. I am surprised that the Democrats have not brought this point to the forefront.’
