A Blow Against The (Secretary of) State

The New York Post’s Keith Kelly lets us know that the author and former George magazine editor Richard Blow has changed his name, and will henceforth be known as “Richard Bradley.” I can’t say I blame him; if my last name were “Blow,” I’d change it relatively quickly myself. However, I must say, the timing is suspicious…

Blow/Bradley is best known as the author of a controversial bio of JFK, Jr.,that came out last year, but he also made headlines last October with an article raising the question of whether Condoleeza Rice is a lesbian. (Some of you may be familiar with the story; I’ve got a couple hundred Google searches about it this week).

Interesting, isn’t it, that two days after Rice is introduced as the new secretary of state, Blow should announce a sudden name change. And isn’t it also strange that the exact same day, in the exact same New York Post, it should be mentioned that Rice “has been romantically linked” to a man, former NFL star Gene Washington. Yes, indeed, as always, the timing is suspicious.
