Again Alessandra Stanley forces me to write about the breasts of a famous woman.

First Ms. Stanley reported that Janet Jackson's now-notorious breast appeared to be of natural origin, an observation I felt compelled to question.

Now Ms. Stanley says that at last night's Academy Awards, "Angelina Jolie was as demure as an anchorwoman in a white satin gown as she presented the award for art direction."

I saw only moments of the Oscars, flipping through as it became sadly apparent that FSU would not upset Duke, but two things I and others saw were Angelina Jolie's nipples.

Why the coverup, so to speak, for New York Times readers?

UPDATE: "Demure as an anchorwoman?" You be the judge:

Tom Lehrer:

"Oh, the Protestants hate the Catholics,
And the Catholics hate the Protestants,
And the Hindus hate the Moslems,
And everybody hates the Jews."

He's also helpful in science class.

Dave Winer: "People were choosing computer science as a career because they hoped to be the next Bill Gates, not because they wanted to work for Bill Gates."

My grandfather Cone was not an oil-well-drilling drifter, but when Jerry Jeff Walker sings about an old man and a boy it makes me think of him, anyway.
