QUOTES of the DAY

HuffPost’s Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington at Copacabana beach “with Sugarloaf Mountain covered in mist.”

Isabel Wilkerson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and now a BU Prof, discusses her critically acclaimed “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration” Saturday night at a holiday party of the journalists “roundtable” at the Washington home of Paul and Anita Delaney. Delaney is a former NYT senior editor and winner of the 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award of the National Assoc. of Black Journalists. More on the “roundtable” later…Photo credit: Craig Herndon.

Fete Fete Fete

“If I hear of one more incestuous DC party, where journalists, politicians and lobbyists gather referred to as a “fete”, I may vomit #fb” — Veteran NBC Cameraman Jim Long in a weekend tweet.

Words of wisdom

“I need to stop living my life like it’s the 4th hour of the “Today” show.” — WaPo‘s Dan Zak in a weekend tweet.

Kardashian and Tschida: Soulmates

“Wow its snowing in Paris and our flight is snowed in now….should I cry now? We’ve been traveling for over 24 hrs w delays.” — Reality TV star Kim Kardashian in a weekend tweet. She’s sounding dangerously like local D.C.’s ABC7′s Stephen Tschida (the wild train ride tweeting dude). > Update: NJ‘s Susan Davis may have suffered a dash of Tschida over the weekend. She writes, “My train to Philly is running 30 minutes late. My train from Philly leaves in 30 minutes. Time for a Davis Family Not-Christmas Un-Miracle.”

You’ve been warned

“From an old friend inviting me to a birthday dinner with her coworkers: ‘Please behave.’” — Politico Ben Smith Assistant Byron Tau in a weekend tweet.

Reporters willing, liberated

“This says something about repeal of #DADT: Haven’t seen reporters as willing/liberated to admit their position on an issue in recent memory.” — Politico‘s Patrick Gavin in a weekend tweet referring to DADT legislation.

The Perpetual Editor

“Harry Reid needs a tweet editor — should be “DADT on its way to becoming history,” not it’s….” — Reuters White House Correspondent Patricia Zengerle in a weekend tweet.

Holiday chit chat torture

“Finding holiday party small talk excruciating without 140 character limit and block button.” — @pourmecoffee in a weekend tweet.

The bromance heats up

“Let the jealousy begin 4 @alivelshi — i’m about to board flight to Honolulu.” — CNN’s Senior White House Correspondent Ed Henry in a weekend tweet.

What is intelligence?

“Intelligence is the ability to take information from the world and to find patterns in that information that allow you to organize your perceptions and understand the external world.” — Columbia University Physicist Brian Greene in a NYT interview Sunday with Deborah Solomon.

Hitchens’s Off-Beat Q&A With NYT Mag

Christopher+Hitchens+ChristopherHitchens001.jpg Even for Christopher Hitchens, the Q&A he did with with NYT Deborah Solomon for Sunday’s magazine took odd twists and turns.

The D.C.-based journalist, who writes for Slate and Vanity Fair, spoke with the interviewer about his new memoir, Hitch-22. In the 13-question interview, Hitchens discussed the following: having homosexual male friends he loves, not with whom he has sex; barely mentioning his two wives (current and ex) and children; and his mother committing suicide in a 1973 love pact (or was it menopause?).

Hitchens tells Solomon why he wrote the memoir: “I suppose the effect of becoming 60 on me was stronger than I thought it was going to be. I took it quite heavily and began to review my life a lot more than I had before.”

Read the full interview here.

An excerpt of Hitchens’s new memoir can be found here.

Jane Fonda’s Shout-Out to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews

chris_matthews.gif jane-fonda.jpg

We would not have imagined MSNBC’s “Hardball” with Chris Matthews to be ideal workout music.

But so it is, for some. Deborah Solomon, who writes the weekly “Questions” column for the NYT Magazine, interviewed actress and fitness guru Jane Fonda for this past Sunday’s issue.

In the course of the interview, Solomon admitted that she works out to “Bardball.” She wrote, “I ride my exercise bike for 20 minutes while watching ‘Hardball.’”

Fonda gushed, “I love Chris Matthews. I mean, he’s tough, he goes at you, but I loved being interviewed by him.” Solomon replied dryly, “He doesn’t strike me as a big exerciser.” Fonda reasoned, “I don’t know. I didn’t look at his waistline. He was underneath the level of the table.”

Read the entire interview here.
