Rosemary’s Baby, part deux? Stephanie Adler Yuan’s water broke two weeks before she was due, at the crack of dawn on a demonic date. Oh my God—we’re having a 6/6/6 baby! was her first thought. Luckily her firstborn, a petite, olive-complexioned girl with a full head of black hair, bore no Adrian Marcato–esque marks. “People just say she’s ‘ethnic’-looking,” said Mom, 31, a senior communication manager at Time Warner. Dad is her husband of three years, Brad Yuan, 37, a vice president at the advertising and marketing company G2 who’s already a pro at changing diapers and giving mini-manicures. Currently, little Ruby is glowing in the bassinet by her parents’ bed, but she’ll soon take over the second bedroom in the family’s Brooklyn Heights apartment. “She’s got the best room in the house,” Ms. Yuan said.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
