Radar is back — as the Thursday Styles section!

We’re Americans, damn it! No one tells us we’re not good enough to be manipulated by upscale design or writhing nude models!" —Royal Flush, Radar, Sep/Oct 2005

"If black is the new black, again, should its influence extend to toilet paper? Can toilet paper make it as an object of design, a touchstone of chic? More important, should it?" —This Season's Must-Have: The Little Black Roll, The New York Times, May 18, 2006

And while we're at it, Spy was doing this 15 years ago.

I wanted to create the fantasy league six months ago, but decided I didn't have the design skills (obviously not a prerequisite for this web site) or the ambition pull it off. Mostly the ambition.


I miss Spy. And good government. And Keenan Wynn.
