Every so often a headline gets it just right. Irreverence, bluntness, mockery, contempt. One of my all-time favorites is BRIDE OF JACKOSTEIN — the 1996 N.Y. Post (or was N.Y. Daily News?) headline about Michael Jackson‘s breeder wife Debbie Rowe. Ditto the N.Y. Post‘s August 2009 headline about Jackson’s final resting place — STACKO!

A full life on this planet has to include visiting places like the Milan Cathedral, which I saw and explored for about 30 minutes in May of ’92, right after my first Cannes Film Festival and on my way to Prague. I stopped in Milan for…oh, maybe three or four hours.
