ATTENTION, WOULD-BE-AUTHORS:

My brother Sam Barry and his lovely wife Kathi Goldmark will be talking about their excellent book Write That Book Already at 7:30 tonight at the Lincoln Center Barnes and Noble in New York City. If you've thought about writing a book -- And who has not? -- Sam and Kathi can give you much practical, real-world information.

If you go, please tell them hi for me, and remind Sam that although he is more talented, I am better-looking.

HEY, WE'VE HOISTED A FEW AT THAT HOUR -- DOES THAT MAKE US PROFESSIONAL?

SO THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM

Dear Dave,
I don’t know if this was previously reported.  I watched “G.I. Joe:  Rise of the Cobra” last night, and Marwan was in it.  I’m sorry to report that not only is he still a bad guy, but he is now working undercover in the White House as the President of the United States.  On the bright side, maybe this will be just cause for Jack to come out of hiding.
Always on Alert,
Sharon Lurie
