Make Him Disappear

This is the thanks I get for donating to the Queens Library system: a newsletter featuring super media whore David Blaine on the cover. Yuck. Blaine, who fancies himself as a magician, is the spokesman for the NYS Summer Reading program, so that's why his face is hogging the flyer. Some people must like him. During his recent underwater-for-a-week stunt, a visitor to the tank compared the spectacle to Christo and Jeanne-Claude's "The Gates." What??! In the newsletter photo, I love that Blaine posed holding an earlier issue with his mug on the cover (and it's autographed, no less).
