Online Offbeat is a virtual Algonquin Round Table -- without the round table.
Each of our clever contributors holds court in front of his or her computer, regaling their pets, plants, and housecleaners with insightful and imaginative observations -- covering every topic from Abba to ze president.
Online Offbeat invites you to eavesdrop on our little group as they weigh in on important issues like:
At what public bath will Yo Yo Ma and Justin Timberlake record their first duets album?
What three books would Paris Hilton take to a deserted tropical island? (Okay, three pamphlets.)
Will the Bush Administration claim that a review by the New York Times’ new perfume critic, has compromised government security?
Someone may even spew forth a serious, thought-provoking contemplation about nuclear annihilation or reality TV etiquette.
If you like what you see, we invite you to keep reading. If not, may you find yourself in a book discussion group with a pack of camels and Jessica Simpson.
