Have been travelling a bit lately, and when I returned home found an interview in New York Magazine by the estimable Michael Kinsley of the execrable Miss Tina Brown. Kinsley, finally, ends any speculation as to the real Miss Brown.
In discussing the short half lives of celebrities these days, Miss Brown said:
"When Vanity Fair began, it was enough to have a movie star on the cover, but Oprah made some psychic scar de rigueur for exposure to have any traction. Now you can't get on a talk show unless you can brag about being a victim of pedophilia or anorexia. It's such a bore, all the whining."

Won't England take her back??
