Aunt Mabel Suggests…

Ever notice that the NYTimes.com most-emailed list is slanted toward an older demographic? Maybe because only folks over a certain age—like our Aunt Mabel—still use the email tool. Here’s a quick, annotated guide to what Grandma and Grandpa thought you might be interested in from NYTimes.com …

1. Maybe Paul Krugman penned this story alongside his yoga-instructor wife in their brand new $1.7 million co-op!

2. The chase after cancer.

3. We once again heard about someone having problems with their wireless last night. This time in Manhattan! We’re going to forward Mabel’s suggestion around.

4. Times goes after crazy conservative liars!

5. Les Paul obit. Auntie loved to rock.

6.  10 steps to health care! By the way, a little advice to Kruggie, Dowd and Rich: Be on notice. The health stories are making a major comeback. Between health care and the intense Parker-Pope-Reynolds rivalry, the Health stories are coming close to cutting the gap.

7. The Times–specifically Tamar Lewin–is on an anti-text book campaign! I like a text, personally.

8. Battle Royale for the next few slots! Parker-Pope does the oldest trick in the book to rob some momentum away from Gretchy. How eating gross, fat hamburgers will slow down your mind and your body. Duh.

9. Ah, the story that got Parker-Pope so frustrated! Gretchen Reynolds’ piece on the old knees.

10. Ooooh! It’s the “brilliant” (Bill Keller’s word, not ours) Ms. TV Critic Stanley. Here she is on Mad Men.
