One No-Trump Vladimir Zatko, an inmate at Pelican Bay State Prison in California, sued Donald Trump this week from his jail cell for $275 million, claiming that he is Ivana Trump's brother and that he has suffered severe emotional distress from the treatment Ivana has received at The Donald's hands. U.S. District Court Judge Alfred J. Lechner dismissed the suit the day it was filed on the grounds that it was "frivolous." A spokesman for Mrs. Trump said that she is an only child, and a spokesman for the prison said that records show no connection between Zatko and the Trumps.
Salute to Peter Krogh Former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, addressing a crowd of more than 700 Thursday at Georgetown University, offered a salute to Peter Krogh, who is retiring after 20 years as dean of the university's School of Foreign Service. Brzezinski recounted being impressed while at a conference years before, when he saw Krogh unbutton his collar and give his tie to a friend in a gesture of thanks. He said that he was surprised when, at another gathering a year later, Krogh made a gift of a second tie. When, a short time later at another grouping of the foreign service community's in crowd, a Krogh tie became a gift once more, Brzezinski began to suspect the spontaneity of the gesture, but said he was still impressed with the man's necktie budget.
