The trip to Long Island last Friday took two hours, and the Transom spent the entire time worrying that we didn’t have a parasol. We were headed to a polo match, after all, and we assumed we’d be schmoozing with socialites, nibbling canapés and discussing Kate Middleton’s uterus while thoroughbreds bounded by in the sophisticated Read More
Things got considerably more interesting on the Royal Baby Live Stream today, for those of us eating New York deli salads and drinking office coffee and waiting for the first glimpse of little Prince Tarquin Murgatroyd (or whatever he’s called) on the corner of our computer screens.

Dirk Barnett, the creative director of Tina Brown’s Newsweek—and thus the man responsible for the Photoshopped “Diana at 50″ cover, the “first gay president” cover and a phallic asparagus Read More
This is Megan Louise Ferguson, the 28 year old Los Angeles actress who may already look familiar from roles in Law & Order: LA, Boardwalk Empire, and the 2010 film Love and Other Drugs.
