Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

How do you solve a problem named Gwyneth Paltrow?
Somebody has just had it up to here with Blythe Danner's Oscar-winning daughter, who's taken DIY to pretty amazing lengths.

And the backlash has begun, as Colette Martin of Forbes.com has a stern (tongue-in-cheek) warning for the multi-talented eager beaver: Cut it out! You're making other American women look bad in comparison.

An Open Letter to Gwyneth Paltrow
By Colette Martin, July 4, 2011 - 4:12 pm


Dear Gwyneth,

Imagine my surprise when I received the June issue of Bon Appetit, and instead of a strawberry rhubarb pie or a luscious summer salad, your face was staring back at me, offering me a bite of spaghetti. The magazine called you “food’s newest face” and described you as a cookbook author.

Really?

Gwyneth Paltrow & Huey Lewis - Cruisin' (from Duets, 2000, directed by Bruce Paltrow)

Monday afternoon for about the tenth time, I saw Blythe Danner in 1776 airing on Turner Classic Movies, a film based on the Tony Award-winning play. She plays Thomas Jefferson's (Ken Howard) wife who has come to Philadelphia at the secret behest of John Adams (William Daniels) in order to prevent Jefferson from leaving for Virginia to be with her, after he has been tasked with drafting what turns out to be the Declaration of Independence, even as there is no assurance that the majority of the delegates to the Constitutional Convention WILL vote for independence.

The natural conflict of the film is the same as it was 235 years ago, and is fought with great wit, sarcasm and outright personal animosity as the elected delegates debate whether or not the 13 British colonies should declare their independence from Great Britain, or stand pat, even while
Gen. Washington and his out-manned, ragtag Continental Army are fleeing New York City as the British Army under Gen. Howe invade.

The British intention
: conquering and dividing, in this case, to march thru New York and then finally cut New England off from the rest of the colonies and any supplies, and then, finally wipe-out the colonial rebels once and for all.
