This is a very scary time for me. Getting ready to leave all that is known. I bitch about New York all the time but I have only lived here except for two years in Cambridge in my early 20’s–and all over the place before then. But I was young, very young and had few things. I was impulsive then and am so the opposite of impulsive now.
I don’t know how that happens. Becoming settled. Thinking of everything that can go wrong, when once I just did. I have such deep roots here yet I know it’s time to shake the roots.
Writing has become so important to me. Once it was a hobby. Something I did to amuse myself. Something I did better than other people at work or in school. It’s the anchor that’s almost making me do this. Lately I have been scared that I’m losing my talent or whatever makes me unique. I begin to think that I’m too old. That great books and articles belong to the young(er) and I never gave myself the chance before. Serious writing requires an organizational skill I lacked until modern computers.
I have an entirely different side. In person I’m funny. In many emails and some comments, but here…I think I need to be settled.
The title of this post refers to my great love of Frank Rich–and how he’s writing about people I can’t stand. I so hope Judith Regan is Rudy’s Linda Tripp. But often I think he should be the Republican candidate as nobody in New York can imagine him winning. We have been wrong before. I remember going to vote in 2000 and a woman said “if everybody on the Upper West Side stands a certain way we can win.” I thought she was crazy, but have thought about what she said she often–that was before that night, and the Florida results. Maybe we didn’t stand the right way.
The quote from the Frank Rich article is beneath all this–If anybody can explain how RudyG can be so truly devoid of morals yet be so popular when Clinton was crucified I would love an explanation.

Have to decide what to give away and what to keep. Not easy. My apartment will be on the market shortly. I know there’s still a market in New York for apartments like mine. Not sure how to price it.
Help stop global warming. Got this from Little Luce who got it from her school.
Frank Rich on Judith Regan and Giuliani. Follow the links. This is how links should be used–original material with cites that document it. This is just a quick Sunday morning, I canceled my plans and sound like a fog horn post so….
Be still my heart. I want Frank Rich to rule America or at least everybody to read him. Like Rich I couldn’t believe America would take Rudy seriously–and I despise Regan and Kerik–when you keep company with sleaze, you’re no better than them.
Ms. Regan filed a $100 million lawsuit against her former employer, claiming she was unjustly made a scapegoat for the O. J. Simpson â€œIf I Did Itâ€ fiasco that (briefly) embarrassed Mr. Murdoch and his News Corporation….â€œIn fact, a senior executive in the News Corporation organization told Regan that he believed she had information about Kerik that, if disclosed, would harm Giulianiâ€™s presidential campaign. This executive advised Regan to lie to, and to withhold information from, investigators concerning Kerik.
Kerik, of course, is Bernard Kerik, the former Giuliani chauffeur and police commissioner,
