It was the week when Jeff Bezos put on a cobalt jumpsuit and launched into orbit aboard a spacecraft that looked exactly like a penis. But while the more eccentric foibles of the world’s most powerful made for some diversion, this Earth-bound creature was fixed on far more quotidian things.

And since when did Stanford Blatch become so elevated that he might be promoted to share a girlie brunch?

I am talking, of course, about Sex and the City, official title And Just Like That, the new television reboot of the premillennial drama about single women in Manhattan, now updated to find our heroines at the mid-50 mark.
