(A Sprinkling of Things we Think you Ought to Know…)

Weingarten Defends D.C.WaPo “humorist” Gene Weingarten uses his weekend column to defend the honor of Washington, D.C. from NYP’s Cindy Adams. Adams famously bashed Washington a few weeks ago, calling it “a sewer.” While Adams doesn’t return Weingarten’s requests for an interview, Gene tries interviewing her anyway. He writes, “Cindy, I make fun of Washington all the time, but I do it because it is the opposite of dirty. It’s as though we took a city and surgically removed all the grit. Washington is spit-shined. People are annoyingly polite and genteel. Nobody jaywalks. The homeless wear spats. You can eat off the sidewalk; indeed, many fine restaurants encourage it. Whereas — and I mean no disrespect to your city — New York smells of stale pee, with a fresh pee chaser.” Is Gene trying to start ANOTHER DC-NYC turf war? Good for Gene for taking on a tired, hack writer for a major market newspaper. Where on EARTH could he have come up with such an idea?

The FishbowlDC Interview With WaPo’s Fashionista Janet Bennett Kelly

Say hello to WaPo‘s Janet Bennett Kelly. She just moved over to WaPo Magazine where where she will, among other tasks, help write a new Style column, work fashion week and write wedding vignettes. She grew up on Great Neck, Long Island, where her mother indoctrinated her early on into the “creativity of clothing, what it means to have a good eye and the wonders of discount shopping at Loehmann’s.” She tells me, “I often find myself thinking when I put together some outfit or other, ‘What would Mom think of this?” What she likes best about her job so far: “I just started this past Monday and work with an extremely talented pool of people, who are not only smart but generous with their time.” She hasn’t always been into writing or fashion. In fact, her dream years ago was to be a Classical archaeologist. She says, “the connection between now and then is, I guess, that I love digging up new things.”

O’Reilly To Pen Obama Book

In an interview with NY Post’s Cindy Adams, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly reveals the topic for his next book: President Obama.

TVNewser reports: “He’s becoming a historical figure not because he’s black, but because his liberal agenda is taking the country in a direction we’ve never been before,” he says. The book is slated for release in “the latter part of 2010.”
