In a Spine of October 2, titled "Opera Buffa," I pointed out that Kofi Annan had been a featured photographed personage in last week's Sunday Times society section. Well, what do you know? He was a featured photographed personage in this Sunday's Times, too. God, it makes you yearn for Mrs. Astor.
Kofi looked a bit grimmer in the latest Times, in fact, no grins at all, unlike a week before. Now that his successor has been hired, maybe he can console himself for the absence of limos and security personnel by riding around in that luxus sports car paid for--am I not correct?--by the oil for food program.
