Thanks for posting it , Tom . I got it this morning in my daily email notices from The New Yorker as a subscriber . This recent aricle is also a winner - If you are a Wes Anderson fan AND a New Yorker lover , his new film being released this Autumn should heighten your anticipation . Like " The Grand Budapest Hotel " , based on the work of the Austrian writer , Stefan Zweig , " The French Dispatch " is a not thinly veiled homage to The New Yorker , and it writers , in its naissance . Bill Murray is the character of Arthur Howitzer , AKA Harold Ross , the magazine's creator in 1925 - https://www.newyorker.com/culture/the-new-yorker-interview/how-wes-anderson-turned-the-new-yorker-into-the-french-dispatch

as usual, everyone turns to Rick and says OK you're the expert, predict the future! His guess is a little better than ours, but his crystal ball is as cloudy as anyone elses. It turns out he was right NOT to restart his machine for fall travel, so he got that right.

I found his candid responses about the impact of Rick's travel schedule on his family life a fascinating insight into Rick that I hadn't heard in other interviews he's done.

as soon as you find out that Rick was divorced, the wheels start spinning. and sadly it's true, esp. since he put his wife and kids into quite a few episodes.
