While we were out: Bristol Palin; Hugh Hefner; Post critics lay down the law
The Reliable Source is on vacation until Jan. 3, but here's some of what you'll find in The Washington Post in our absence:
In Names and Faces, Bristol Palin's purchase of a formerly foreclosed-home in Arizona has the nation's top Palintologists scratching their heads. Is she planning to attend college there? Who knows. Also, Hugh Hefner is engaged. His fiancee is a 65-year-old grandmother and retired schoolteacher who -- ah, hell, you know better. She's 24 and on the Hefner payroll, like they all are.
Style's critics were on fire this weekend. Philip Kennicott called on G. Wayne Clough, director of the Smithsonian, to resign after the Hide/Seek controversy. Ann Hornaday declared it's simply not possible to rank your favorite Coen brothers movies, but does so anyway, and seems itching to start a fight with Lebowski fans. And Robin Givhan, in her farewell essay, defends Washington against charges of anti-fashion -- we mean to look this way, she says.
Sad obituary of the day: Teena Marie, "the ivory queen of soul," died at 54.
