I recognize the venality, but I couldn’t help chuckling at a certain reader response to Gawker’s report that Tom Cruise is “in contract for an apartment at the Dakota” for something close to 20 million bucks. Allusions/ parallels between Katie Homes and Mia Farrow‘s manipulated/imprisoned character in Rosemary’s Baby aside, a guy wrote, “I’m going to start passing out copies of The Catcher in the Rye to all the local crazies.”
