(Web) Reality Check
By the time I came back to the here and now, I had chucked it all and was running a villa on some Greek island à la Meryl Streep in “Mamma Mia!” (Yeah, I saw it — and I liked it. So what?)
Point being … are all the links on your Web site working properly? They should be.
Intrigue in D.C.
I’m writing this column from the Hilton Washington, between sessions on the last day of the 2008 Bridge Conference in D.C. Lots of cool stuff going on here, as usual. And while I thought that this year’s spy theme was fun, I have to admit that some of the crime-scene décor is a little … well … unsettling. There’s yellow-and-black police tape everywhere, along with some occasional “chalk” body outlines on the carpet. A colleague said to me last night, “I’m from New York … I just look right past that stuff.” Me … I’m from Philadelphia. And I’m sorry — but add a crowd of people eating water ice from little paper cups, and that could be any summer Saturday night in my neighborhood. I’m just sayin’.
