a salute to love

Despite her entirely unnecessary put down of my beloved Brad, Rebecca Traister has a nice salute to the marriage of Anne Bancroft and Mel Brooks on Salon.

"That brilliant, short, hilarious nebbish Brooks should have married a shiksa is no surprise — don't they all? But that he should marry a tough Italian amazon (comparatively; he was 5-foot-4, she was 5-foot-6) with a strong Bronx accent and the look of a woman who could kick him across the East River? I like that in a man. I like that in a woman. I like that in a couple."
