 The Afternoon Wrap: Thursday

  • Ann Coulter doesn’t like inconsiderate liberals in East Hampton: “It does not occur to them that someone has to manufacture the tiles and steel and glass and solar panels that go into those ‘eco-friendly’ mansions… Liberals are already comfortably ensconced in their beachfront estates.” But who else is ensconced? Ms. Coulter has a $1.7 million waterfront estate in Palm Beach. [The Atlantic/Andrew Sullivan]
  • First came Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard. Now Park Slope’s ongoing quest for namebrand hipster coolness scores another victory: Ryan Schreiber, the godly editor of uber-music Web site Pitchfork Media, is moving in. [New York D.I.]
