Lizz Winstead, Minneapolis comedian, creator of The Daily Show and Air America. She knows more than I will EVER know about politics. I couldn’t sound less informed, tune in. She has a new book out Lizz Free or Die… Get it. Enjoy this.

She meant Helen Mirrin. Judi Dench is lovely. Here’s a great picture of both of them.

    You did that high five low five pickle thing to me after a show once in Hollywood and I got confused, ha. I bet toddlers DO love it.

    http://www.thenation.com/ It's not really so ponderous (and not nearly as much as THE NEW YORKER was when you and I were young), and I'm particularly a fan of Katha Pollitt's regular column. (I'm reading writer Bruce Jay Friedman's autobiography, and he mentions his first visit to the NEW YORKER's offices, and being shushed by the fiction editor who was buying his first stories as they walked the halls because editor in chief William Shawn "was disturbed by hearing unfamiliar voices"...I'm afraid I'm more inclined to trample than nurture such precious fragile flowers.)

    Indeed. Worship of Helen Mirren's breasts, as on SNL a season or so back, has become a bit of sustained hipster joke. Meanwhile, I meant to mention that writer and actor Fritz Leiber used to refer to the books that shared mattress space with him, in the period between his wife's death and his keeping company with another woman as his "Scholar's Mistress"...scholar's gigolo? Not a good phrase.

    Hey Todd, that's from some magazine that they now say they WILL be printing that interview... I can't remember the name of it but I'll link it if it ever DOES print :) ...

    Oh the Nation - I went to school in Madison and I think of the nation as a new yorker of politics. I WANT to read it... but it's too dense.

    Lizz is great. She DID mean Helen Mirrin... link to the pic she was talking about in the notes.

    The obvious counterweight to NATIONAL REVIEW, which in Buckley's years meant to be the broad-spectrum right-wing voice and might be a little less central to the right now (not centrist, mind you, though Buckley's libertarian streak and Catholicism could put him in some mildly surprising positions, that didn't affect NR the magazine much) would be THE NATION, the broad-spectrum leftist quasi-weekly (really unobservant folks would rack up the aggressively centrist THE NEW REPUBLIC as the natural correspondent of THE NATION and NATIONAL REVIEW, which it is...from the center. But the dullards want to insist that it's leftist).

    The consensus these days among most people who've looked at the Rosenbergs' case is that he probably was passing along data to the Soviets, and she probably wasn't.

    Cool. Glad to hear from Winstead, particularly as I never got to see much of THE DAILY SHOW while she was still there, nor her Carangi/Spungeon hybrid parody. I wondered if Helen Mirren was the one she meant to cite...

    Also glad to see the interview you put up on the Tumblr pages (BRAINBOX)...is that from that Armenian-American magazine? Did it fold? SE Asia focus...because of East Timor? THE KILLING FIELDS? All that fun...
