The Sun Must Shine on Anna Wintour

91298375 The Sun Must Shine on Anna WintourThe Vogue editor is fighting a condo tower that would loom over the garden adjoining her Sullivan Street townhouse.

Wintour sent a plea to the Landmarks Preservation Commission (on Vogue letterhead, no less) last February calling developer John Wu’s plans “totally out-of-scale,” “inappropriate,” and “unwelcome,” reports the Post. And “as recently as last week” she was writing to Christine Quinn to express her displeasure. The Department of Buildings has warned Wu that they will revoke his approval if he doesn’t reduce the building’s height. He plans to fight their decision.

Should the garden fall into shade for a prolonged period of time, Wintour will be forced to reduce her metabolic rate and grow sluggish in order to withstand the lower temperature.

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.
