1.) What happened to Ada Calhoun at NEW YORK magazine? (It's not why she's gone, I know, but I'm sure she didn't score any points earlier in the year by shopping around an article on the ULA!)
2.) Has Ian Spiegelman, late of "Page Six," landed on his feet?
3.) Is Franklin Foer related to Jonathan Safran?
4.) To zeen (zine) people: Anyone read the recent issue of LOW HUG by A.J. Michel? Any thoughts on what she relates? Her opening essay relates what seems to me to be fear and disgust at a p.c. crowd of "cool kids" in the zine scene, of all places-- the last place where it should be. I've heard rumors that her piece has something to do with the Rich Mackin controversy, but don't know for certain. Mackin, btw, has a place in ULA history, having been the (great) opening act for our 2001 Amato Opera House show in New York City. Rich had been opening a year prior for Ralph Nader. We wanted to start our event explosively, and couldn't have found anyone funnier or with more energy.
