    Gail Collins redux: on the money 

    Gail Collins’ column about Gov. Rick Perry of Texas (and his apparent support for secession from the US) is so good I wish I could do more than just recommend it.  Here it is:

    My daughter, my daughter… Dear Tina, thank you for the lovely woollen dupatta, or maybe that’s not what it is… a hand-woven, most amazing, shawl kind of thing, from India, of a wool that’s very fine and soft, with a design of a black ground and woven-in patterns of two reds and a blueish green — one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever owned. It shields me from all harm when I wear it. It’s magical. Thank you, and love.

    I’m laughing out loud at Donald Trump’s unalloyed unabated arrogance (and his crowing at not being hit as hard as others by the real estate downturn) in this mini-interview by Deborah Solomon in the NY Times Sunday Magazine:

    The NYTimes has a lot of interesting stuff going on. One of my fav’s is the City Room blog, here:
    http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com

    Today there’s “Fired Over a Tuna Sandwich, and Fighting Back”, a sad story, where justice of a personal kind prevailed, but a larger social justice didn’t:

    and “The Moral Costs of Counterfeiting”, with some surprising thoughts:
