Italian Vogue July issue

In an interesting and bold move, Italian Vogue's July issue will feature exclusively black models, including the 17-year old Jourdan Dunn (above), on the cover.

The editor, Franca Sozzani, said:   "Because nobody is using black girls. I see so many beautiful girls and they were complaining that they are not used enough."

Ms Sozzani admitted the issue could yet prove to be unpopular among some in Italy, where the xenophobic Northern League is part of the new coalition led by Silvio Berlusconi: "Maybe in our country it is not the best idea. But I don't care. I think it is not my problem if they don't like it – it's their problem."

very cool.

portable grill

Even though it's been cold and rainy out, should be grill weather soon...this is a nice option for those of us with little to no storage space at home. (and only $48 which isn't bad at all for this designy sh*t).


Fitting the profile, a crime in NYC (and elsewhere).

From the NYPOST.


"What did I do?" I asked when we arrived at the 49th Precinct station house. "Why am I being arrested?"

"Keep walking. This is not an arrest. You're getting a summons," Officer Castillo said.

Inside, Officer Reynolds shoved me into a cell. Digging through my bag, Officer Castillo picked out my driver's license and said, "Look at this. He is not even from the projects."

I angrily shouted, "Because I am black that means I'm supposed to be from the projects? That's profiling and you know it!"

"Tsk, tsk," Castillo replied.

When Officer Reynolds returned, I again asked why I had been incarcerated. "This is not incarceration. Do you know what incarceration means?" he said.

I unloaded: "I have a master's degree from Columbia University. I am a reporter for the New York Post. What do you mean this is not incarceration?"

The air froze. Officer Castillo kept writing, but I watched his face go flush. "

I gotta say, I'm torn. I like all 3, and all 3 men deserve a coin. I'd be hard pressed to choose only one of these great men. Why not a series?
