That Lived-In Look Comments (0)

James-Franco-Scott-HazeNo idea if Franco hits that, but if I were rich, I would not have any roommates.

The New York Times apparently soft-outed James Franco in a piece that pointed out he lives with longtime buddy Scott Haze. It's all very Cary Grant/Randolph Scott, so I'm sure in 50 years an adult daughter of Franco's will be laughing off the rumors.

The New Big Deal: The Consequential President Comments (0)

ObamaMove on, lefties—you won.

Economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, a frequent friendly critic of the Obama Administration, has written a piece in which he posits that President Obama is “a very consequently president indeed.”

Krugman writes of the president's liberal critics:

“I’ve found myself in conversations with liberals who shake their heads sadly and express their disappointment with President Obama. Why? I suspect that they’re being influenced, often without realizing it, by the prevailing media narrative.

“The truth is that these days much of the commentary you see on the Obama administration—and a lot of the reporting too—emphasizes the negative: the contrast between the extravagant hopes of 2008 and the prosaic realities of political trench warfare, the troubles at the Department of Veterans Affairs, the mess in Iraq, and so on...You should judge leaders by their achievements, not their press, and in terms of policy substance Mr. Obama is having a seriously good year. In fact, there’s a very good chance that 2014 will go down in the record books as one of those years when America took a major turn in the right direction.”

It's a great, sensible piece, and one progressives need to accept: We won, and it worked. Enjoy it.

JohnDuka79_pr0“John Duka” (1977) by Alan Kleinberg

The New York Times has run a compelling, tantalizingly short piece on its former style editor, John Duka, the man presumed to have been the inspiration for Larry Kramer's Felix from The Normal Heart. What an interesting, short life.
