Oh, the Alec Baldwin irony: The actor walked off his paparazzi incident by having lots of photos taken. Promotional, of course, for his turn in Woody Allen's "To Rome With Love. " Baldwin had a busy Wednesday, stopping by David Letterman's chat show, then hitting a special screening of the film hosted by the Cinema Society and Disaronno. While he was joined at the after-party by costars Penelope Cruz and Greta Gerwig, Baldwin's attention was on his own leading lady, fiancee Hilaria Thomas.

It came from actor Alec Baldwin, who has long been a fan and patron of the 170-year-old orchestra. In an article for Sunday's Arts & Books section, I spoke with Gilbert and a number of members of the orchestra, but...

Twitter is a dangerous place for movie stars, famous athletes and other public people. The average person might feel shame after impulsively tweeting a borderline insane rant against an airline after being asked to stop playing Words With Friends during takeoff - but when a celebrity does it, (Alec Baldwin), it becomes a national news story, and an official, publicist-approved apology must be issued.

If you suffer from a fear of flying, here's something that might calm your nerves: The first 11 months of 2011 were the safest period for commercial air travel on record. The global accident rate for January through November was 22% better than the same time last year and marked the safest period since a United Nations aviation agency began collecting data in 1945, according to the International Air Transport Assn., an airline trade group that issued a report based on the U.N. data.
