Leaving For My House In The Seychelles

As I said last year (and every year), this town is dead until after Labor Day and it’s pointless for someone like me to still be here working. So… I’m leaving this afternoon for my house in the Seychelles and will return on September 7th. Please don’t contact me unless there is some type of …

Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding

Now I know what it would be like to live in the Iraqi Green Zone.  It would suck. I am now safely on the deck of my Montauk house after a successful air lifting out of Rhinebeck yesterday afternoon. Before I was allowed on the chopper, a few of us were given one final harsh …
