On A Friendly PSA: It's "Kenan." Yes. Kenan Thompson.

He's the "ahn-DRAY-uh" Zuckerman of the cast.

Or, Keenen Ivory Wayans became famous first, and the Universe has decided, "well, we've locked down how we spell that name."

Wait, is Megh-not-Meg short for MEEgan-not-MEG-an?

I'm just playing. Everyone's allowed to spell and pronouce their names however they want. The Universe tends toward chaos anyway...

On Meditations on Glasgow with Gerard Butler

It caught me off guard this morning, as I mistakenly bounded onto a G at 7th Avenue before realizing that a) The G was back and b) They were rolling big-boy size G trains.

On The Woolworth Building Has a Nice Lobby and the Terrorists Are Still Winning

I did the exact same thing when I had a seminar in the NYU owned part of the building. I was excited to check out the lobby, then was scooted 'roud the corner to the NYU entrance. To say that crummy beige entrance was a letdown was an understatement.

On Ask Polly: Should I Quit My Job To Be An Artist?

Pro tip: examine your ambivalent feelings toward being a father before you have three fucking kids. Rebecca, please emotionally (and otherwise) steel yourself for life as a single parent.
