The first Mrs. Cohen – a stupid, vindictive nutcake

New York Magazine is out with a hugely long story on Steven Cohen’s first wife. I didn’t have the patience to read the whole thing and stopped when I got to the part about their 1990 divorce: she got a million in cash, a $3 million co-op, and blew the whole wad in a year. She’s been after him ever since, it seems. I’m not inclined to feel sorry for Greenwich’s wealthiest trader, but geeze.

If it’s really going to rain as much as they say …

Good time to revisit any houses you’ve been looking at. Six inches of rain ought to reveal any basement flooding issues and if the house you want stays dry in that downpour, you’re pretty well set. If not, you have a price negotiating point. You can probably save effort by just asking your agent to schedule an appointment for, say, Tuesday afternoon. If the house is “unavailable”, there’s your answer.

Flood warning!

4 – 6″ of rain predicted. That’s a lot.

I’m up late (for me) because we watched Sharpe’s Revenge on Channel 13. Very entertaining. I’ve enjoyed Bernard Cornwell’s books on his Napoleonic soldier, Colonel Sharpe, but hadn’t realized they’d brought at least one tale to the screen. Well done and engrossing.

UPDATE: Who knew? There’s a slew of Sharpe films.
