Paul Rudnick
You may remember Paul Rudnick from his years writing under the guise of Libby Gelman Waxner in Premiere, who wound up every piece with the line, "If you ask me." The playwright/screenwriter ("In and Out," "Addams Family Values") can be hilarious and has outdone himself in the current issue of The New Yorker: "Vive La France" extols the virtues and superiority of French women in every way:

"The American woman obsesses over every calorie and sit-up, while in France we do not have a word for fat," he writes. "If a woman is obese, we simply call her American."
