Gossip Jumps the Pond

The news, in today’s
New York Times,
of the
takeover of that Dean of American Journalism, the National
, by a team of Brits, inspires a mixed reaction. On one hand,
what does the stodgy British press know about sleaze, scandal and sensationalism?
On the other, perhaps we can hope to see some naked tits while waiting
in the ckeckout line at the Stop and Shop….

Spirits were high in the offices of The National Enquirer
in Manhattan last week. A gaggle of British interlopers had taken custody
of the tabloid, a SWAT team of Fleet Street meat-eaters brought in to
revive the storied but now flagging checkout magazine.
