Cindy Adams: Andrew Cuomo’s enemies won’t cease

I’ve not spoken with Andrew Cuomo since 2016. Philadelphia. Wells Fargo Heart. The Democratic Nationwide Conference.

That week’s embedded in my mind as a result of jewellery I’d positioned within the lodge’s locked downstairs vault I by no means ever noticed once more. So traumatic that I bear in mind each second of my expertise there. On the CNN Grill’s lunch break for VIPs is when he and I final spoke.

The purpose’s made as a result of no means can my opinion now be defined with: “Oh, she’s a buddy of the governor …” No. I used to be solely extraordinarily near his governor father Mario and his spouse, Matilda.

So I simply need to say you don’t like Andrew? OK, don’t like him. There isn’t anyone who doesn’t dislike anyone. No person likes everyone. He’s a bully, in workplace too lengthy, upset over the nursing residence tragedy? OK. But it surely has nothing to do with this opinion: Again when females wore stockings and bras, and gents opened doorways for women, earlier than investigations, sexual harassment headlines, shrill voices and HRs to run to, bosses made passes. Awful — however occurred to us all. Typically it labored nicely, generally not. Its dealing with was dialog across the workplace water fountain, again after we had an workplace and a water fountain.

The categories who tower had energy. It was the older technology’s roadbook. And lots of a Hollywood and Washington identify traveled it.

Lately, a senior gentleman and younger woman shared an elevator. At their mutual ground, he stepped again for her to precede him out. She then berated him loudly for his “stupidity” and misuse of right now’s equality. He was surprised. He hadn’t but graduated to right now.

The world’s modified. In a number of circumstances for the higher. And we, he, Andrew want change with it (though he says he’s accomplished nothing flawed). However forgetting the front-page problem — a reality is he has enemies. They … simply … need … him … out. Aside from the nursing residence horror, grudges exist. Hate is flourishing. Our bodies will struggle in opposition to his survival.

Watch. This continues. The spadework has solely begun. Their life’s work is to dig deep. Our bodies recognized to many are already on the market churning for extra. 

Some vices nicer than others

On their very own vices, there’s Naomi Campbell’s “I don’t care in the event that they name me a bitch. A bitch is somebody defending their rights” … Requested if he had any vices, Keanu Reeves, cigarette in hand, replied: “I don’t have one. Or I simply don’t relate to them as vices” … There’s scrumptious Queen Latifah to InStyle journal on her virtues: “There ought to be an award for greatest breasts in a film. After all, after they create that award, I’d higher win it” … And Dolly Parton’s knowledge on why she all the time wears make-up: “[What if] we get an earthquake? … You by no means know should you’re going to wreck the [tour] bus, you by no means know should you’re going to be someplace in a lodge and there’s going to be a fireplace.”


Donald as soon as paid $2.75 mil for greater than 400 upstate acres. He gave that land to the state of New York, and Gov. Pataki made that acreage right into a park. Now’s a petition to rename it the “Ruth Bader Ginsburg Park” … Spike Lee’s doing an HBO collection about New York, beginning with 9/11 all through COVID. It’s how this metropolis tackles adversity — rebuilds — and bounces again.

Caught with virus

Internist/immunologist/lupus and autoimmune illness specialist Dr. Robert Lahita: “About 30 corona vaccines are actually in growth. Till all proof is examined, it’s so far believed there might be, months later, recurrence.”

Forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, NYC’s former chief health worker: “We have to wait a number of years to study the time-frame of return. Not but clear how lengthy the immunity might be. At this second, we imagine that is with us for a very long time.” 

Sufficient about transferring out of Manhattan. That’s winter. They’re again in summer season. By the point you end paying to your new residence within the suburbs, these suburbs have moved 20 miles additional out.

Solely speaking about New York, youngsters, solely speaking about New York.
