Flaubert said, "Snoid, c'est moi." Commenting on this, Professor E. Compton Buzzard of Stanford University has written, "Writers are drawn to beautiful women in line with the principle that opposites attract. Thus in the Crumbian mythos Mr. Snoid pursues, zum beispiel, Mode O'Day or Angelfood McSpade. And in what we choose to call the real world, Salman Rushdie marries Padma Lakshmi."
Yes! Salman Rushdie and Padma Lakshmi. They go together like a fish and a bicycle. I loved seeing them out on the town, but now that Padma has sent Salman a "Dear John" email, we aren't going to have many more photos like the one below. So let's enjoy it! And let's also enjoy the really great video of Padma further down. Alas, Salman! Yeats put it so well: "What else was she to do? Was there another Troy for her to burn?"
