(162) Comments | Posted June 10, 2011 | 4:11 PM

It crosses our mind that there's far too much attention paid to aphorisms about falling in love and not nearly enough to those about falling out of love.

So herewith, Huffington Post introduces our own section of divorce aphorisms. Our inaugural aphorism comes from Alessandra Stanley of the New York...

In Defense of Ryan O'Neal

(400) Comments | Posted August 6, 2009 | 6:56 PM

I understand that Ryan O'Neal has confessed, in the current edition of Vanity Fair, that he recently failed to recognize his own daughter Tatum at a funeral and accidentally made a pass at her.

Everyone is very judgmental about this, but I just want to say that I sympathize.

The Play's The Thing, But It's Not The Only Thing

If it ever stops raining, which I'm sure it will someday, I am going to celebrate by going to the greatest thing about New York - Shakespeare in the Park. This year the show is Twelfth Night (which I'm pretty sure I've never seen), with Anne Hathaway, Raul Esparza, Audra...

Addicted to Love

It turns out that Dick Cheney doesn't really care how you pronounce his name, Chain-ee or Chee-nee, either one is okay. I'd been wondering about this lately, because Chris Matthews has taken to pronouncing Cheney's name "Chee-nee" in a very deliberate, sort of bossy way, as if he knew something...

Every time I read something about Susan Boyle, I like to think it will be the last thing I read about her. But it never is. Days have passed, and people are still writing about her. Tina Brown has written something this morning that begins by saying that Susan...

Hey, HuffPosters, my sister Delia and I have written a play. It's called "Love, Loss and What I Wore" and it's based on the best-selling book by Ilene Beckerman, as well as on the stories of our friends and friends of friends. It's a series of pieces performed by five...

It's true what he said: we misunderestimated him.

George Bush came into his presidency with a huge wave of goodwill. Not from me, but from the others. An amazing number of people who should have known better thought of him as a charming guy whose intellectual limitations would somehow be...

Exhale

So we held our breath for twenty-two months, twenty-two months of an election that everyone claimed would bore us witless. The exact opposite turned out to be true: it was riveting.

It was difficult for the candidates who ran for office and for the operatives who masterminded the campaigns...

Thinking About Bill

(324) Comments | Posted November 4, 2008 | 10:14 AM

As I listened to Sarah Palin's recent phone call with "Nicolas Sarkozy," I couldn't help thinking about Bill Kristol.

I think about Bill Kristol far too much. I almost never used to. Before he began writing his Monday column in the New York Times, I rarely saw him on...

So is this the real John McCain?

No question the man who turned up last night did a better job than he'd done at the previous two debates. But here's the problem for McCain: he's either last week's guy, who seems to be on medication, or...

Life in the Shallow End

(313) Comments | Posted October 8, 2008 | 1:07 AM


I don't mean to be superficial, but let's face it, I am. And there's nothing like a presidential debate to remind me how deeply superficial. It's not that I don't hear what the candidates are saying, but I always begin by noticing what they're wearing, and whose...

The Graph and I

I tried to watch the vice presidential debate tonight but it wasn't easy. This was because I was forced to watch it on CNN. I happen to be an MSNBC junkie -- but the TV set was already tuned to CNN so that was pretty much that.

This was the...

There was a moment, when the debate ended and the wives came up on stage, where I actually knew, or thought I knew, who had won. I'm sorry to say it, but it was John McCain. McCain had come into the debate having spent the week as the King of...

The Morning After

It was a giddy five days, wasn't it? I remember it well. There were blogs, and jokes on the Internet, and bets were made about how long it would last, how soon there would be a resignation. I made one of those bets myself. I said, within the month. Gone...

Hillary the Admonisher

(1175) Comments | Posted August 27, 2008 | 12:18 PM

My favorite part of Hillary Clinton's speech last night was when she admonished her followers not to put their affection for her over the issues. When she reminded them that what's at stake is far more crucial than their loyalty to her. When she reproved them for thinking for even...
