Brava for Brooke Astor's Insistence Upon Lunch on 9/11
The prosecution doubtless presents this as evidence that Astor was gaga (she was 99 at the time), but we prefer to think it shows noble patrician sangfroid instead, like that displayed by her former father-in-law, John Jacob Astor, at the sinking of the Titanic, or of Commander McBragg. Reschedule one's lunch for a lot of Mahomedan thugs? Such things are simply not done.
So few people know how to behave these days. We bet all the internet billionaires were shitting themselves in their panic rooms.
