Following up on last week's Absolut lawsuit by Sex and the City Samantha-doer Jason Lewis, one of our favorite gossips writes in to say:

Jason refuses to endorse alcohol, tobacco or guns? Hmm, that's strange, because he bummed three cigarettes in a row from me outside the Jet Blue baggage carousel at Long Beach Airport this past February, then vigorously inhaled them in front of a group of starry-eyed pre-teens who were anxiously waiting for him to stop chatting with me so they could get a pic and autograph.

Well, that's fair: I wouldn't do ads for heroin, but that doesn't mean I don't like to ride the horse every now and then.
