Colmesy, never more dapper than in formalwear and appropriately flaccid bowtie:

Rick Santorum, statesmanlike in senatorial business attire:

And Sweet Jane, the big A’s new fave, workin’ it classy-like … in sweater and blue jeans:

The stage is now set for what will surely come to be known as “The Betrayal.”

Heart-ache.

Exit question: What’s our next move? Demand a formal apology? Insist that the boss appear only on live shows henceforth so that she too can drop the B-bomb with impunity? How about Fleming sends us a special autographed copy of “Cookin’ with Jane” and we call it even?
