So today being "fat tuesday" I guess I can eat all I want.I feel for the people of New Orleans...and have mixed feelings about celebrating Mardi Gras. I guess they must keep on keeping on,and yet I think the money could be spent on more important things...like homes. Perhaps the added attention will get things done and the added revenue will help. what do you think?

Ok, just like Woody Allen said in an old movie...everything we thought was good for us is bad and vice versa. Now they are saying arthritis meds don't work, low fat isn't necessarily a good thing, coffee is good...chocolate too. What are we supposed to believe? But I am really happy to find out about the chocolate.
Like Alice In Wonderland, the government is getting "curiouser and curiouser." The port situation would be fodder for jokes if it weren't so serious. Not only did 43 not know, but now he insists on it? And the fact that the big money is connected back to the shadowy Carlyle group...however u spell it is even curiouser...but not really, then, is it?Business as usual. I am going to bed.Wake me when it's over...hoping that's not a bad choice of words.

Kudos to Anderson Cooper of CNN for continuing to show us the lack of progress in helping those devestated by Hurricane Katrina. How can this government dare to ask for millions of dollars to "promote democracy in Iran" when 45,000 homes have disappeared in St. Bernard Parish...Louisiana. And nothing has been done to clear the refuse of people's homes and lives. We must all call the White House and complain! Of course now that Oprah has done a show there, perhaps the pols will be scared enough to do something.

Dear Readers, not to get too too intellectual on ya, but there is a piece in the NY Times Mag of this Sunday that is must reading. Francis Fukuyama (it's worth it just to contemplate the life experience with that name) writes on why neo-conservatism has failed. It is the most cogent argument I 've seen on the topic of Iraq et al. And regardless of your politics, it makes brilliant sense!

I see that over $300,000,000 has been wasted by FEMA on trailers that are sitting in Arkansas and of no use to anyone in the Katrina debacle. Is there no end to the malfeasance? I watched Brown and Chertoff "acknowledge" their mistakes. Hey, that's not enough, boys. How about fines and firing all around!? Since it's my money and yours Dear Readers, we have to demand consequences for this total incompetence.

I cannot stop laughing at the quail shooting incident by our Vice President. The jokes on the talk shows tonight will be amazing I'm sure. It's a good thing the old VP Dan Quayle was not on the spot or he would be dead!! I am home in snowy NY and I love it. Am going to make snow angels...later....

Attention to all of you...I know this is a rough year when the bad birthday (60) comes to some of us. But I have the antidote. Get the new CD of 'Jersey Boys' (the story of Franki Valli and the Four Seasons.) I went to the show in preview and loved it, but to have the hits that we can still remember the words to...at least I can...in your home, is priceless. Sherry, Can't Take my Eyes off You, My Eyes Adore You....need I go on? Give yourself a real treat and I defy you to be able to stay seated. I am now dancing with the door. Enjoy.

Today I had a visit from the exterminator. Yes the mice are back. Those of you who read newyorksocialdiary.com and my column,The Search for Mr. A, know that so far the score was mice O- Susan 6, and last night I saw another candidate. But when the exterminator came over this a.m. he was too busy looking at the pics on the walls of my former show biz life to do any work. He wanted to discuss Laugh In and other stuff and I just wanted glue traps. Just like the old joke about the guy who cleans up the elephant poop in the circus....and if you don't know it, ask someone. I am going to bed as I was up all night with the light on looking for the tiny creature.

For those of you who have been reading the column in newyorksocialdiary.com, you know I have been searching for guys who could be measured by their 'Adequacy.' Well, this scale can apply to lots of things. The ratings are the following in order of ascendance: the lowest, less than adequate, adequate, more than adequate, the one! Needless to say we are still looking for "the one" and we would compromise (not settle, never settle) for someone "more than adequate." And you?
