The No-Cry Zone

Some people will tell you there are worse fates than sitting near a screaming child on a long flight. I am not one of those people. So when I first heard a friend propose the idea of “child-free flights,” I was intrigued. Over the past year, the idea seemed to gain steam. But for some reason, nobody was asking the airlines themselves. So I did. Long story short, it ain’t gonna happen. Wah.


On Display

Meeshach Taylor they ain’t. Anne Fargo and David Hoey are the slightly madcap (though way stylish) minds behind Bergdorf Goodman’s window displays. Their job is “part architect and part cake designer,” as Hoey puts it. It’s also the latest link in a long line of brilliant, largely unheralded New York City artists. (OK, Simon Doonan is pretty heralded. But who’s ever heard of Gene Moore?) In Thursday’s Style section, and please remember I don’t write the headlines, Window Dressing Warriors.

Judgment Day

Some people will remember Jeanine Pirro as the Westchester County DA and (briefly) the challenger to Hillary Rodham Clinton in the 2006 Senate race. Others know her as Judge Pirro, Wapner-esque star of her own daytime court show. But to me, she will always be the super-intense sweetheart who taught me how to use a running shoe as an assault weapon. (Seriously, don’t mess with this lady.) A Deal? Tell it to the Judge.
