Page 1 Consider (01/20)

  • Mass Failure: The sight of Martha Coakley -- whose loser speech was way too long -- with John Kerry is a sad juxtaposition of gross Democratic failings past and present. (NYT)

  • The Mayor of Castro Street: Why is Gavin Newsom, the mayor of San Francisco who authorized same-sex unions in 2004, leaving politics just when he feels he’s getting better at it? (Maureen Dowd)

  • Lips Unsealed: I hope they didn't print more than 100 of these, but Belinda Carlisle's memoir is set for release May 25. (Amazon)

  • Jack Out of the Box: And speaking of Belinda. Her former assistant and current BFF Jack E. Jett, named 2009 Best Radio Personality of the Year by the Dallas Voice, is bringing his award-winning television show to CNN Radio 1190 a.m. on Jan. 25 from 6-8 p.m. CST weekdays. The show will be two hours of "exotically inclusive and intelligent chat." (CNN 1190)

  • Treat Me Right: My favorite snack of all time is in this photo. Can you guess which one it is? (NYT)

  • Home Run: I hear that the production of "Take Me Out" running in Brooklyn Heights is a winner. The play -- about a closeted slugger in the major leagues -- has just been nominated for the New York Innovative Theatre Awards. And if that's not convincing enough, there are lots of naked men in the locker room scenes. (Heights Players)
