Still Front Page News
In case you missed yesterday's New York Times, LvB made a key appearance in the opening paragraph of the top story on the front page: "Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, who is French, and Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany are close. 'They are on a first-name basis' write Nicholas Kulish and Annie Lowrey. 'They frequently exchange text messages. Shortly after Christmas, Ms. Lagarde brought Ms. Merkel a trinket from Hermès and received a recording of the Berlin Philharmonic playing Beethoven from Ms. Merkel, a classical music lover.'” A trinket vs. Beethoven, who do you think came out ahead?
