The New York Social Diary:

The New York Social Diary: "Cruelty to me has never been funny and it is getting unfunnier by the day, if for no other reason, than 9/11," says your man on the Upper East Side and Hampton's circuits. All your gossip needs are met with all the latest on Martha Stewart, the ladies of leisure, the state of homosexuals, and of course Liza! "His reports on the gyrations of the Rich and Climbing are not to be missed," squeals Liz Smith.

In many ways, it is a social chronicle about the getting and spending of money, and the people who are involved.

muckraking at its finest!

Excrement.

Mo, calling this "excrement" is to insult genuine, workaday shit.

I can't even read this stuff.

And don't forget the customary new-yorky gratuitous mention of "9/11." Do people in New York really say 'nine eleven' every time they open their mouths, or is that just an artifact of the increasing newyorkification of the media?

Artifact. Artifact, artifact, arti-FRICKIN'-fact. Yes, New Yorkers dwell on it. It's hard not to, when all you have to do is look at the skyline for a reminder. On the other hand, no one's sitting in the corners, sucking their thumbs, either. New Yorkers have waaay too much to do. :)

majick: 'increasing' newyorkification? Get a grip... New York has dominated the national media since there was such a national media of any sort. Sorry to vent... but people without a sense of history who claim that things as old as time are 'new' or 'increasing' or what-have-you are irritating as hell.
