Bougainvilleas-A.jpg
VARIOUS—After a neighbor informed me that the bougainvillea in my yard had overgrown a bit, I figured that I could simply trim the fragile plant. It is fragile, all right, fragile as strychnine.

The_Grady_Diet.jpg
HOLLYWOOD—Have you ever wondered, what would happen if an actor plumped up for a role and then later couldn't shed those wanted (for theatrical purposes) pounds?

By Grady Miller on Nov 25, 2007 - 10:21:48 PM

diet_001-A.jpg
VARIOUS—Do people reluctantly ask if you lost weight on purpose, or was it disease?  If you answered yes, then you may want to consider going on the original Grady Diet.

VARIOUS— A rag of
Gotham once vowed only news that's fit to print.  Now, it's any that fits. If toes get stepped on or facts mangled, there's plenty space for apologies.

By Grady Miller on Sep 2, 2007 - 7:01:52 PM

Great_Fundaminsky.jpg
VARIOUS— In
West Hollywood luminaries live anonymously among us, and until their obituary appears does one realize that. So who resides next to you?

By Grady Miller on Aug 19, 2007 - 1:56:32 PM

The__10_000_Pooch-A_1.jpg
VARIOUS— In the final chapter of "The $10,000 Pooch," the hopes of cashing in on a reward are exquisitely poised against fears of being exposed as purveyors of a phony hound.

dollar.jpg
VARIOUS— Seduced by the financial counselor’s easy drone and the hypnotic pastime of autographing reams of loan documents, nobody ever warned Norman or Valeria about contending with Mr. Big.
