Jess ‘Eyes’ Oscar for Tammy
Oscar front-runner Jessica Chastaindug out from under the pounds of mascara she was wearing Play Tammy Faye Bakker: “I remember the homophobia and fear of the 80s. For Tammy, putting the spotlight on an openly gay minister with AIDS and telling her audience, “We need to put our arms around him and tell him we care,” was a radical act of kindness. I wanted to tell this story. She was about unconditional love and love without judgement.
“Beyond my perception of what society thought of her, I needed to understand the woman’s soul. She cried easily, but she also loved “Camp”. ”
I’ve known this ex-lover of canned evangelist Jim Bakker for a long time and well. When her day-glo lip gloss nearly blinded me, she said, “Freak is chic.” In 1992, her approval rating was lower than OJ’s, she told me, “Michael Jackson wears more makeup than I do.” . . Look, I’m tired of apologizing. I am now looking for a press agent.”
In those early days, before Jessica Chastain became so special, she wanted Sally Field to play her.
Urgently needed for Ukraine
The internist Dr. Eugene Holuka, “growing up in the Lower East Side Ukrainian ghetto,” taught me how — aside from just regretting the news — we could help
Immediately required is front line military medical and surgical equipment such as bandages, catheters, soft cast leg boots, braces, splints, chest drains, rapid coagulation material. Michael Dowling, CEO of Northwell, immediately attended to this desperate need. In Ireland he sent boxes of essentials.
dr Holuka: The world is reacting. All of Europe helps. Germany, England, Poland, even Japan and Taiwan ship medical equipment and antibiotics.
“Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jewish grandmother is from Odessa. He contributed $10 million. Ashton Kutcher’s wife Mila, who is from Ukraine, sent $3 million.”
Yes, but we can’t just fold that into an envelope and mail it. How do we get it there? And who is it for?
“Connected communities are everywhere. There is a “Little Russia” on Long Island. The Lower East Side has various clubs and organizations, New York has a Ukrainian credit union. There is the National Bank of Ukraine. you type Bank.gov.uahelp the Ukrainian army, it replies and asks for credit card information.
“On Sunday morning – when it all started – the country’s foreign minister and his military attaché called me. They said send groceries, formulas and special medical equipment. We immediately shipped 150 boxes of 28 boxes of specific medical equipment.
“Ukraine also needs level 4 body armor and flak jackets. You can buy it in the US, but without official approval, you cannot ship it without the special appropriate licenses. Agencies can secure this for you or it’s illegal.
“But everyone – does something. Help.”
Thanks very much
Meanwhile here on site, we had 18 wheels chug from LA to DC – burning over 400 gallons of diesel fuel – to protest the supply chain dilemma, plus fuel shortages, plus the mask mandate, which is already gone. They were opposed to “elites bossing them around” and were funded by “working classes.” Meanwhile, my cranky letter writers said they drew less attention than a mosquito in Florida, and their $10 million raise should have gone to Ukraine.
There are so many employment problems these days.
This handsome young house painter attracted the homeowner. She suggested that maybe he could come brush her. He agreed. The next day, noon, the same. But this time he was more interested in his tuna sandwich. When she waved at him, he said, “Not now. I am taking a lunch break.”
Only in New York, kids, only in New York.
