This Just In . . .

Madeleine Albright's famous brooches are getting their own museum show. "Read My Pins" debuts at New York's Museum of Arts & Design in September with 200 pieces from the former secretary of state's collection. Highlights: the golden snake pin she got after Saddam Hussein's cronies called her a "serpent," a bee brooch she wore whenever she thought she was walking into a "sting," and the balloon pin she selected if talks were likely to go well. The show might tour for as long as two years -- the perfect excuse for Albright to get more pins.

I think she always wears a pin in case she runs into George Bush. She would rather choke than say a kind word about him. The funny thing is, she was no great shakes as Secretary of State herself.
