Golda Meir on a bearskin rug


Woody Allen’s take in the New Yorker on the recent allegation that Warren Beatty* bedded close to 13,000 women is strikingly retro: Not just the reference to Meir, but who remembers Alain Delon? Secretariat?

It’s also very funny. Best line (look for the set-up):

Ironically, when he tried they called Security.

*Beatty denies it.

Hat tip: James Wolcott. I miss Wolcott’s Law and Order commentary, by the way. What did he think of last night’s CI?
