Mae West: Sandy Stayed

Hurricane Sandy touched down in the hometown of MAE WEST with a charm lethal enough to disarm a nation.  By the time she fully unpacked her bag of surprises, though, she was "Aunt Sandy" (because no one could tolerate such a virago under one's very own roof for that long unless she was a blood relative).
• • Sandy was demanding. She absorbed all the electrical power, she misled sailors, she seduced strangers so much that they took her photo and posted it on Twitter. She was a train wreck of a storm, smashing store windows, flooding the subway, redecorating restaurants, closing supermarkets, tossing around boats like pennies, making New York neighborhoods and beachfronts hell on earth.  Just when people were comparing her behavior to the most outrageous diva, she gave a last wave and moved to the next town.  Fickle. 
• • And now, dear Readers . . . uh, where were we?

• • The Mae West Blog was started eight years ago in July 2004. You are reading the 2473rd blog post. Unlike many blogs, which draw upon reprinted content from a newspaper or a magazine and/ or summaries, links, or photos, the mainstay of this blog is its fresh material focused on the life and career of Mae West, herself an American original.

    Yes, unfortunately, Sandy was a heartless strumpet, blowing into NYC and taking everyone for a ride they didn't ask for. On the other hand, people came together one again in a united front of solidarity, and hopefully will not let this wanton flousey's wake of destruction leave a permanent mark. Missed your postings madly!
