Clean, shaven

A block on 103rd Street has been dubbed Humphrey Bogart Place. When I lived on 105th and then later on 98th, I would get my hair cut on Broadway near 103rd. The barber, "Mr. Kay," had been in the same location for decades. He told me how he used to cut HB's hair, and also that of . . . Cornell Woolrich.

It's not necessary to watch this video of Sonya Thomas, the Korean-born "Black Widow" of the competitive-eating world.

Q: Has she ever met the pool-playing "Black Widow"?

According to Wikipedia, Cornell Woolrich "left his wife a locked suitcase containing a diary detailing his homosexual adventures." Gay with gangrene, who knew?
