We had a pretty good weekend. Perhaps you did as well.

But it’s a safe bet neither of us enjoyed ourselves quite as much as George Clooney, who spent last week touring Venice with Cindy Crawford and a borrowed water taxi. (That’s Crawford’s husband in the middle.) He was celebrating the premiere of his latest work behind the camera, Ides of March, but he was apparently in no hurry to lose the tuxedo.
