>Maureen Dowd has this funny piece about Carla Bruni. They’re both like Jackie O but seriously updated – Carla a little bit naughty, Michelle a working woman, totally relevant for 2008, but they both seem to have that Jackie charm:

“Just as Carla charmed the Queen of England and Princes Charles and Philip with her demure French schoolgirl look, she charmed George and Laura Bush on their visit, inviting Laura 30 minutes early for a girls’ tête-à-tête, and then sitting next to the American president and keeping him entertained with a spirited conversation in English, one of her three languages and sort of his one language.”

Reminds me of that story of Jackie charming French and Russian leaders (and everyone else) with her poise and youth and intelligence and modernity. And while modernity means something different in 2008 then 1960, the intelligence, youth, and poise are similar.

>i saw a few episodes of “Mad Men” and really liked it and, of course, was really impressed with the aesthetic. over-wrought floral patterns, puke green upholstery, and lineoleum. The New York Times has a good article about the show, which has become a hit, probably because the cultural subject hits the NAIL ON THE HEAD: The structuring, and inevitable emptiness, of demographics.
