Madonna slated to direct her Diablo Cody-scripted biopic  09/16/2020 23:34:46   Cindy Adams

Madonna. In her 60s. Probably with a subscription to the AARP magazine. The current adored and worshipful love of her life  maybe temporarily  is Ahlamalik Williams. Hes 26 and probably roller skates to the store for his copies of Bop Magazine and Teen Vogue. This nice boys parents are younger than she is, three years older than her daughter, and is also a dancer so no jokes about the many moves he can make.

Anyway, between their rompers, news is shes co-writing  with Oscar winner Diablo Cody  a biopic of her life. Madge herself will direct it. She, however, wont star in it. Alec Baldwins newest infant, his fifth baby with his second wife, might play Ahlamalik.

The one that got away

A Michael Fuchs Galerie in Berlin holds a video of four character types outlined by Greek philosopher Galen, a VIP I have never met personally. On it, for some reason, Cate Blanchett blanches in Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholic and Phlegmatic for 3 / minutes. And for some reason I dont understand, makes faces. And utters I love you, I dont love you. There is an app called Acute Art, a way to experience and collect this augmented reality. I now know why I never interviewed Greek philosopher Galen.

Fools on parade

Like everything else that wont  Thanksgivings traditional 2 /-mile oom-pah down Central Park West wont. Floats will attach to a few vehicles. Each balloons 80 to 100 handlers will watch it on TV like everyone else. Santas scheduled to schlep up at the end, unless he and Mrs. Claus blow the temperature checks.

History lesson

There’s BS about a third in line maybe for our presidency. I, Madam Adams, will educate you. The precedent semi-exists.

March 1849, on a Sunday at noon President Polks term expired and he did not seek re-election. George Dallas (a city got named for him) was out as VP. When President-elect Zachary Taylor refused to be sworn in on Sunday, the Lords Day, we were without a leader for that day. Our third in line was Missouri Sen. David Rice Atchison. Folklore holds that Atchison succeeded to the presidency for this day, but whos to say for sure. I wasnt there. Bio: Born, Frogtown, Ky. Educated, Transylvania U. Tiny unofficial Presidential Library in wherever-thehells Atchison, Kan. His Plattsburg, Mo., statue bears the legend President of the US for one day.

This one-day 12th president liked to say it was the honestest administration this country ever had.

Lawyering up

Pre-CV, we burbled too many lawyers, now not enough. Everyones suing. Divorce, custody, wills, mortgages, evictions, disputes, reorganizations, dismissals, bankruptcies, promissory notes, loan modifications, bank problems, collections unreturned, loans, businesses facing foreclosure, money not returned, raises canceled, contractors not showing up, promises not kept, work not done, lousy relatives, repossessing property with other attorneys defending millions of homeowners etc.

But NY Republicans, take heart. After Mr. & Mrs. de Blasios cutting-edge leadership and AOCs BS sticking to us like merde, fear not. Following the Goldwater-for-President debacle, NYC elected Republican Mayor John Lindsay, Republican Mayor Giuliani, Republican (then) Mayor Bloomberg. So, remember that motto of House Stark on Game of Thrones: Winter is coming.
