Yes! I am finally on vacation – the last appetizer was shoved into the oven, the last chocolate cake morsel precisely cut and now I can forget about food for a couple of weeks and let other people (and airlines) feed me. But more of that later. For the time being, I will be enjoying a long and lazy weekend: Memorial Day and the Summer it officially heralds.
One. Wise words from two wise men, worth repeating.
Two. In the wake of Roger Ailes’ death many words were spent on how the man made Fox News the conservative powerhouse it is now. But on whose shoulders was it built?This great op-ed by Monica Lewinsky reminds us.
Three. Three cheers for Gellara Magazine, the very first magazine for Afghan women. What we take for granted, it’s a miracle of ingenuity in a country like Afghanistan.
Four. As a kid, I used to watch reruns of The Persuaders on a regular basis and I favored Roger Moore’s panache over Tony Curtis’ brashness. This brilliant anecdote (make sure you read through to the end) proves that Sir Roger Moore was a gentleman with a keen sense of humor.
