"The Godfather" plays out the horror of feuds. That darkness goes way back to the beginning of mankind. Cain had a beef with brother Able. Like Fredo in "The Godfather," Able got whacked. As Drudge Report hammers, such darkness hovers over any movement on healthcare coverage. In the U.S. Senate GOPers just can't get along.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The July VANITY FAIR profile  of Sally Quinn by Evgenia Peretz seems less about a particular woman who was a unique human being and more about a type of woman: the female who obtained power through a man and abused it and him.
